Qualified and certified to fly drones in UK Airspace by the Civil Aviation Authority
We are there to help you better understand how our drone systems operate and what can be achieved with our equipment.
From your first phone call, we will begin to collaborate with you to ascertain your requirements and how to safely complete the fights you require. Thorough pre-flight planning takes place and you will be advised on what we believe to be the best course of action, based on your brief.
Aerial plans and strategies can then be formed to best assess how the drones can be used to film, photograph, map or survey your project.
Our drone systems are built using the world's best trusted equipment and industry-leading onboard Flight Controllers.
Clients have a wide choice of cameras and technologies at their disposal. Filming up to CinemaDNG 5.2K RAW (5280x2972) and photographs up to 21MP. The drones can also be used for Live TV, with a HD link and extremely low latency.
The drones can remain airborne for thirty minutes, but we will always bring enough batteries to fulfil the aerial task, along with rapid drone charging facilities.
We strive to be as safe as possible and this is achieved through our thorough preparation and safety procedures. Each drone is meticulously constructed on site and thorough pre-flight checks take place. We adhere to strict method statements, which are tailored to each task.
CloudVisual is covered to £5m Public Liability and Indemnity cover and hold the CAA Permission for Commercial Operations, PFCO, which is a legal requirement for us to commercially fly a drone in UK Airspace.
Our altitude limits are governed by the Civil Aviation Authority and we cannot fly above 400ft above ground level, or outside of a 500 meter radius of the pilot.
