Safety is always our top priority
The sea can be an incredibly dangerous environment and requires respect and thorough safety guidelines in order to ensure filming can be completed without incident.
Much of our filming takes place during rough weather and some of it at night. Through our CAA audited operations manual and strict risk assessments we have put in place measures to ensure the safety of our crew, clients, and the general public. All of our drones are fitted with failsafe safety systems and we have protective helmets, kevlar gloves and eye protection for landings and takeoffs aboard boats.
Specialists at sea
Being specialized in the marine industry has allowed us to focus on one sector and invest in safety equipment such as lifejackets, sea survival courses, first-aid courses and VHF radios for our team.
We also had £5 million worth of public liability insurance.
