Drone survey dates are subject to permissions and Local Authority by-laws and clearances.
Confirmed drone survey dates are also subject to suitable weather conditions. Our Drones (UAS) can only fly in dry and calm conditions.
Our CAA operational authorisation is awarded on the basis of flight safety aspects. It does not give us the authority to disregard any aspects that are of interest to statutory bodies like Police and Emergency Services, the Highway Agency and Local Authorities.
Many areas are marked as regulated high-risk areas and the operation of your drone may be hazardous or prohibited. We do a check and if it is in that zone, we may have to take clearance from NATS and other relevant authorities. Please note we cannot take jobs that may need road closure for the operation.
The collision avoidance requirements for SUAS (Drone) are followed at all times as per guidance provided in CAP 722. A Visual Line of Sight (VLOS) should be maintained at all times during the flight and the drone has to be visible at all times with the naked eye during the entire operation.
Risk assessment is a process where the drone operator has to decide the safety concerns of both involved and uninvolved people/animals/vessels/vehicles and structures. We cannot fly closer to 50meters to any crowd/property/vehicles and structures that are not in our control. The aim is to always be aware that the flight operation should not be a danger and the drone remote pilot will be the judge of that and may deny flying in a certain path if that is considered unsafe according to him/her.
£1 Million public liability insurance will be in place before any job and will be fully compliant with EC 785/2004. We can get a cover for a larger amount if needed by the client. We may also include an invasion of privacy cover if needed.
Blue Pixel Limited will supply with high-resolution coloured aerial digital photos and 4K videos of the relevant areas to check for any roof leaks, missing tiles and any other visible defects.
The quoted fee needs to be paid in one go before the survey or 50% deposit and the remaining 50% on the day of the survey / before delivery of the imageries.
