Why choose Skyfly?
Just some our benefits…
Skyfly not only have an OSC, but we also have a permission granted from the CAA to film at night. This enables you to operate 24/7. We are required to recce the site during daylight hour however.
Our pilots are able to fly our drones inside buildings, warehouses and large pipelines if required. The skill and concentration involved is a testament to the quality of our equipment and pilots.
With a range of drones available we can cater for almost any camera and lens combination. Our heavy lift Vulcan Raven has a payload of up to 8kg.
We appreciate the importance of time when aerial filming hence we have invested in a large number of batteries to keep the camera rolling. Our drones flight time now has increased to around 26 minutes per flight for multi-rotors and up to 1 hour for our fixed with platforms.
Not every shoot is the same, we offer our clients a range of drone platforms to carry cameras such as the Sony A7 or ARRI ALEXA Mini with a variety of lens combinations.
We utilise the Amimon Connex system providing broadcastable HD streaming (up to 1080p/i) with less than 1Ms latency from as far as 500m.
Recently used the team from Skyfly for the first time on a video project which required aerial filming footage. We found the whole team to be very approachable and a great asset to our own video team on the project. The team consisting of one pilot, one cameraman were extremely professional in their delivery of the aerial filming, bringing ideas and recommendations to enhance the video storyboard we supplied.Si RootThe Hideout
We pride ourselves in finding new and innovative ways to capture and process our drone data. We are constantly updating the equipment and systems to ensure we as a drone operator, are providing our clients with the best possible service. Drones as a surveying tool are extremely effective and efficient in comparison to traditional surveying techniques. This is why Skyfly is constantly challenging existing suppliers and competing with them and winning big contracts.
Our operating limitations are set depending on the job required. We can operate with our standard permissions which are set to 30m at take-off and 50m during flight, or we can utilise our operating safety case which allows us to reduce those distances to 15m at take-off. This reduced distance is because we have proven to the CAA that we can operate safely from these distances and we have input the procedures to operate our drone safely with this extraordinary license.
