Working with Drones in Southampton Airspace
Southampton, a city on England’s southern coast, is the UK’s leading hub for maritime and marine industries. The city is also a major port, with regular ferry services to France and the Isle of Wight.
In recent years, Southampton Airport has become one of the busiest airports in the UK. The airport is located in the heart of Southampton, just a few miles from the city centre. The airport is home to a number of airlines, including British Airways, easyJet and Ryanair.
We as the drone operator are responsible for obtaining all permissions to fly within any restricted airspace in Southampton 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 ROOF SURVEYS & DRONE INSPECTIONS
Drone roof inspections are a safer, cheaper and quicker alternative to traditional methods. They can cover large areas in a short amount of time and don't require scaffolding or the expensive hire of Mobile Aerial Work Platforms and platform lifts.
This makes them ideal for inspecting large commercial roofs, listed building roofs and domestic roofs.

AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY AND DRONE MAPPING
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.
