Global Drone Surveys Swansea

Drone Surveys and Inspections

There are many benefits that come with Global Drone Surveys for surveys and inspections. Our highly experienced and qualified pilots fly complex inspections and surveys in the most safe and reliable way. Their expertise in handling UAVs in complex airspace is unrivalled. With our years of experience, we are able to provide the most accurate data possible to our clients. We have a wealth of experience in the fields of surveying, building and infrastructure inspections, mapping and aerial photography. We’ve performed countless surveys for both commercial and infrastructure clients across the UK and Europe. We are able to provide you the most accurate data possible.


Our UAVs are much safe than traditional methods of industrial inspection. They are also more efficient and accurate, which means that we can get the job done in less time and with fewer risks. Additionally, the high resolution of drones cameras allows you to get a much better view of the area being surveyed or inspected. This can help us reduce the risk of mistakes and make the process more repeatable. Ultimately, using Global Drone Surveys and inspections can save you time and money while ensuring that the job is done right.

Roof inspection

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.


Repeatable monthly Drone flights


When it comes to updating stakeholders on the progress of a construction project, monthly done flights are an accurate and time-saving way to do it. Not only does this method provide great progress reports, but it also allows managers to track the build and see potential issues early on. This is especially beneficial for site managers who need to progress and hazards.


All our monthly fights carried out on preprogrammed GPS waypoint missions that control everything from flight path , altitude , camera position and point of interest .

Asset inspection

Our Drones are able to quickly and accurately identify potential problems with assets such as cell phone towers, masts, and bridges. This information can then be used to make necessary repairs or replacements before the asset fails. This helps to protect the public from potentially dangerous situations and saves time and money in the long run.


Drones also offer a safer option for inspectors, as they are not exposed to the same risks as those who inspect assets manually. This is especially important when inspecting high-risk assets such as bridges or cell phone towers. By using drones for asset inspection, we can protect your employees and reduce the overall risk involved in asset inspection.

Working with Drones in Swansea Airspace

Swansea is a city in Wales. It is the second largest city in Wales and the twenty-fifth largest city in the United Kingdom. The city is located on the Swansea Bay coast, about fifty miles west of Cardiff. Swansea had a population of 241,300 in 2022.

Swansea airfield is a small public airport located in the city of Swansea, Wales. The airport is situated on the outskirts of the city, in the district of Penllergare. It is the only airport in Wales with a CAA Public Use Aerodrome Licence (PA28) and is therefore designated as a general aviation airfield.

The airport has one runway, which is oriented north-south.

We as the drone operator are responsible for obtaining all permissions to fly within any restricted airspace in Swansea 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 mapping Swansea

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.
