Working with Drones in Plymouth Airspace
As of June 2019, the airspace around Plymouth in the UK is shared between civilian and military users. The city's airport is home to both a Royal Navy base and a civilian terminal, and the airspace is managed by NATS, the UK's air traffic control provider. This arrangement is not without its challenges, as the two different types of users have different needs and requirements.
We as the drone operator are responsible for obtaining all permissions to fly within any restricted airspace in Plymouth and its surrounding areas. Restricted airspace is marked on aviation charts.
Flight within these areas is restricted for all types of aircraft, whether manned or unmanned. To obtain permission the drone operator must apply for Enhanced Non-Standard Flight clearance via the NATS website or local ATC.
We take care of all of this to ensure our operations are safe and legal as well as advising you of lead-in times as we complete the process.
DRONE SURVEYS & DRONE INSPECTIONS PLYMOUTH
A roof is one of the most important parts of a structure. It protects the building from weather damage and can add to the aesthetic appeal. A drone roof survey can help to identify potential problems with a roof so that they can be repaired before they cause significant damage. A drone roof inspection can also be used to check the condition of a roof after a storm or other event.

AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY AND DRONE MAPPING PLYMOUTH
Online satellite imagery can be out-dated by up to 6 years and can be unreliable in planning and analysis needs. Drone survey imagery is typically 20 times the resolution of Google Earth, allowing for greater planning detail and when augmented by our 3D mapping capability, provides ground representation to the smallest detail.
