Why Choose Hummingbird Droneworks?

In the UK it is illegal for any individual or organisation to take aerial photographs, videos or film for commercial gain without holding a 'Permit For Aerial Work' from the Civil Aviation Authority. This includes any form of aerial inspection or survey. The term 'commercial gain' means receiving payment of any kind in return for such aerial work, including payment 'in kind' such as returning the favour. The fines are large and offenders can even be sent to prison. Furthermore, insurance companies will not cover aerial work without the operator possessing an appropriate permit from CAA, so why risk it?

Hummingbird Droneworks holds the appropriate 'Permit for Commercial Operations' (PfCO) granted to us each year by the Civil Aviation Authority. Our pilots are professionally qualified and BNUC-S™ licenced to fly drones commercially. We are fully insured to carry out commercial aerial work in compliance with the latest UK and EU regulations. We maintain our equipment to high standards and follow strict operating procedures to minimise risk. More...

Equipped with the latest high resolution cameras and flown by experienced pilots our drones can provide you with a truly fresh perspective on land, buildings and structures. Unique aerial views (including detailed close-ups) of difficult to see parts of a property can be viewed easily whilst keeping your feet firmly on the ground! Not only can we show you these views streamed live from our drones as they fly, we can also capture them for you to review in detail later and even include in your reports.

We will always take time to understand your requirements and agree the best way of fulfilling them with you.
