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 [...]

Property Inspections By Drone

By |2019-03-24T23:01:48+01:00February 21st, 2019|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , |0 Comments

Drone property inspections are now available across the UK. Using an unmanned aerial vehicle with a remote controlled camera is ideal for reaching hard to access areas such as roofs and chimneys. There are several different reasons for needing a property inspection, and the equipment, process and expertise required can vary. For example, a comprehensive survey by a Chartered Surveyor can be valuable if you are purchasing a property. This may not go as far as a survey of the roof unless there are signs of problems. A drone property inspection is ideal for checking a specific part [...]

Airspace counts as an invisible national asset – put simply, it is defined as the part of the atmosphere controlled by a State above its territory and over the sea which it is committed to provide air navigation services. It is divided into two main categories – controlled and uncontrolled space and in the UK, the CAA is the body that’s responsible for administering the rules and regulations regarding it. Over time, obviously, the needs for the airspace change and so the airspace classes need to be amended so they can meet these requirements.  [...]
