By |2020-01-20T20:28:09+00:00July 22nd, 2019|Categories: Featured, General|Tags: , , |0 Comments

Drones and Police Use

By |2020-01-14T00:49:21+00:00July 20th, 2019|Categories: Featured, General|Tags: , , , |0 Comments

Drones and Police Use Drones are now far more commonly being used by Police Forces across the UK to assist them in their fight against crime. Although drones offer a cost-effective approach in many areas, they are not seen as a replacement for the National Police Air Service helicopters so we can expect to see them on duty for many years to come. However, the speed with which a drone can be deployed, and the cost savings means that UAV technology is starting to offer benefit in many areas. Wiltshire Police [...]

How soon will we have drone deliveries ? When you mentioned drones, one of the subjects that always come up is the possibility of drone deliveries and how realistic are they. It’s fun to imagine that a drone will drop your Friday night pizza to your doorstep but will it ever happen? In fact, the science-fictionesque sight of the sky buzzing with package carrying drones might become reality sooner than you think with large organisations such as Amazon and Alphabet (Google’s parent company) investing some serious resources into bringing the idea [...]

Drones have been subject to a lot of bad press over the recent years, not least following the events at Gatwick and Heathrow in December 2018.

It’s clear that there are concerns over illegal operators, the criminal fraternity, safety and invasion of privacy, something [...]

If you tell someone you are a drone pilot, you will often be asked about the potential of UAVs to carry out deliveries (usually pizza, proving that the UK is indeed a nation that loves its food!). Regular headlines appear with multinational companies promising drone deliveries of the goods we order online.  Not that these aren't both laudable goals – we are increasingly time pressed and the idea of fast and responsive deliveries is certainly attractive. However, drones can drop more than your latest Amazon order, and are already carrying out lifesaving work dropping medical supplies [...]
