What we do to keep you safe
Here at Rising View professionalism and safety are two of the most important aspects of our drone photography service. This is why we are registered with the Civil Aviation Authority and we hold a RPAS qualification.
Sometimes we get enquiries from people who say they just want a few photo’s that will won’t take long and they seem genuinely surprised when we tell them that any photo shoot we carry out is done to certain rules and regulations which take time to achieve.
To receive approval by the Civil Aviation Authority we were obliged to provide a case plan outlining our working methods and the steps we take before and during a drone flight. We now use this plan each and every time we put a drone into the air.
Here’s a glimpse into the work that goes on behind the scenes at Rising View:
Before we Fly
Before a drone goes into the air we must first make a survey of the area and locate and inform any other users who will be in the air at our level. We also assess the ground around the area for any possible hazards. This work is done after we receive a booking so that we have this information before we go out on site.
On the day of the flight, we again assess the area both at sky and ground level. Out team then set out the Take-Off and Landing spots and mark out an emergency landing zone. Those involved in the operation are then briefed as to the weather conditions and any possible hazards or risks which have been identified.
Once the drone has been set up for aerial photographs or video it will be launched after a series of safety checks have been made. This ensures the safety of the general public, the photography team and the equipment.
Once the work has been completed and the drone is back on the ground we will check the video and the photographs to make sure they reach the appropriate standard before we leave the site.
As you can see, we comply with the Civil Aviation rules and regulations and have our own working practices to keep safe. That’s why all our photo shoots will take time to set up and can’t be done in a hurry. It just wouldn’t be professional to miss out these vital steps.
Why Use a Professional
In order to operate a drone for a photography and video service, you must have passed a UAV operators course, which has been accredited by the Civil Aviation Authority, have permission for commercial operations and hold the appropriate insurance. If you’re using a company without these permissions you could be compromising your safety and the safety of others.
A professional company like Rising View are not only skilled drone operators, but they are also experienced photographers, trained to give you the best from their service.
