Drones are revolutionising aerial data capture.

Emergency services, construction companies, and the media are capturing aerial video faster, safer and cheaper than the alternatives. This data is helping organisations make decisions quickly and helping to deliver projects on time and on budget. 

Typically those images and video had been captured by alternative means such as helicopters, elevating platforms or scaffolding at great potential human risk. In some cases, data that has never been captured before is now accessible immediately and without putting employees in harms way. However, the regulatory environment can look like a minefield for those not from a traditional aviation background. Pilot Training, CAA Drone Licence, Insurance, Drone Regulations, PfCO, NQE; where do you start? And the CAA regulations are evolving as more is learned about drone deployment.

We understand that organisations just want to use the drone to capture the data, the video, or the images as simply as possibly. And our clients' clients want to ensure they are using reputable companies who take safety seriously. Nobody wants to be featured in the news for causing an incident. The only successful flight is a safe flight; not to mention the legal liabilities at risk if a pilot get's it wrong. Less costly than crashing a drone or risking a privacy infringement is qualifying the skills through professional training and assessments and assuring safeguards with tested fleet management software.

We're professional aviators and we've trained over a thousand pilots from small to large organisations internationally; enabling them to quickly and efficiently integrate drones. Our CAA Drone courses include online learning, in-person classroom sessions, and outdoor scenario-specific advanced flight manoeuvre training. More importantly, we stay with you after training with our award winning mission management software. Our aim is to help organisations to put drones in the skies safely.

We offer our own Unmanned Aircraft Qualification (UAQ) and are a Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), Nationally Qualified Entity for Small Unmanned Aircraft (NQE SUA).

“I had used my drone for a couple of years on a quarry that I still work at. In late 2017 the quarry was sold to a bigger concern who liked the fact we could use the drone for planning and archaeology imprint viewing. My new employers take safety and legislation very seriously and instructed me to take the necessary steps to become compliant with regulations and to receive the correct training. We used UAVAir (Consortiq) after reading the online testimonials and cannot fault the delivery, from initial enquiry, into online learning, ground school and then the flight assessment itself. Even the manual construction and reviewing process was great. You do have to put the work in. It was a really interesting and rewarding experience throughout”
