Questions We Get Asked All The Time
Is it safe?
Safety is PRIORITY ONE for us. If we can't fly safely, we simply won't do the job. We take pride and care with utmost responsibility of our decisions and actions. Our work must be exemplary of the industry.
Quality - Is your work any good?
Quality happens to be our SECOND PRIORITY (after SAFETY!). We guarantee all our work are of commercial quality. We use only the best cameras, on the best drones, with the best safety records to do our work. After all, if you're not satisfied with our work, we'll either re-do it or refund your money - GUARANTEED. We won't be much use, if our work sucked! 🙂
Are you insured?
Yes. $20 million in public liability and damages, in the HIGHLY UNLIKELY event of somebody getting hurt, or damage sustained to property.
Are you licensed?
Yes. We are CASA licensed RPA (drone) controllers and operators. CASA ReOC certification number: CASA.ReOC.0701
Can you fly anywhere?
No. We can't fly "anywhere".
There are strict laws against flying within 3 nautical miles (5.5 km) of a towered airport, such as Sydney's Kingford Smith and Bankstown airport. Heavy penalties apply in breach of this rule, as it increases risk to air traffic.
However, we can make applications with CASA to fly inside of this restriction zone, on a case-by-case basis, as well as obtaining the necessary insurance coverage.
There are also other various restricted air spaces, such as those reserved for the use of sky diving. Talk to us to discuss about compliance.
How high can you fly?
We can fly as high as 400 feet (122 metres) AGL (Above Ground Level) without the need of CASA approval. Beyond that, we can seek CASA approval, as well as obtain all the necessary insurance coverage, on a case-by-case basis.
Can you fly over crowded events?
No. However, we can make submissions to CASA for approval for such an event. Contact us to discuss.
Can you fly in the rain/snow/hail?
No. Not yet.
