What we do
How we do it
The aircraft we use.
Phantom 4 Pro V2 4K video 20MP stills. Ideal for indoors & tight arears
AerialAVP has access to a varied array of aircraft to suit the requirements of the services that are required by the client. This can be from a small aircraft like the Phantom 4. This has an incredible camera 20MP 1” sensor with a mechanical shutter which gives non distorted vertical lines (unlike electronic shutters) RAW images. To a 4K 60 frame video capability using D-log for incredible dynamic range.
DJI Inspire 2
The Inspire 2 is the industry 'go to' drone with recording video capability up to 6K in Cinema DNG/RAW. It goes from 0 to 50 mph (80 kph) in just 5 seconds and hits a maximum speed of 58 mph. A dual battery system prolongs the flight time to a maximum of 27 minutes. It’s the all 'go for' drone for location work from block buster films to industrial applications.
Our post production facilities:
AerialAVP is an extension to the photographic and media services of Andrew Vincent Photography (AVP). We can supply a full production from stills to moving images.
Capture one is the industry RAW stills image editor.
The editing and colour balance and grading is second to none. Does what is says on the tin.
Below you will find freqently asked questions on aerial activity.
If you have any further questions please contact us.
Under CAA regulations we are allowed to fly from ground level up to a maximum altitude of 400ft AGL (above ground level). The reason is, under rule 5 for manned aircraft flight must be above 500ft unless taking off or landing. So this leaves a separation zone of 100 feet.
We monitor the weather forecast upto 5 days in advance of any shoot. If the signs are not good we contact our client 48 hours prior to the shoot.
If you decide to still have us on the day after our advice that the conditions will not be appropriate for safe drone operations, our pilots will wait on site as long as possible in the hope of a break in the weather.
If we have to re-schedule a date because of the weather a new booking date will be made with a discount from the normal cost.
Weather is a known business risk in the UK so we are as flexible as possible to ensure that bookings can be rearranged.
Yes – We can fly indoors but we need space and for safety we can install propeller guards for indoor flights.
Our drones are battery powered with electric motors so there is no worry about polluting the environment.
Most of the time there are no issues with flying indoors but safety is our number one priority. Only a short flight test can give us the final answer.
Our CAA approval clearly defines where and how we can fly.
The main operational conditions for a small unmanned aircraft SUA are:
• Maintaining a distance of 50m from people and property not in control of the pilot.
• During take off and landing maintain a distance of 30m from people and property not in control of the pilot.
• Permission of the landowner to take off and land.
• Directly overhead or within a minimum distance of 150m from an open air assembly of over 1000 people.
• Maximum height of 400ft above ground level.
• Maintain visual line of sight of the SUA to a maximum distance of 500m.
• During daylight hours, so that you can clearly see the SUA and take avoiding action from other air users if required.
• Outside of controlled airspace.
• Restrictions apply to certain areas of Central London and additional permissions to fly in these areas need to be sought from the CAA.
• Restrictions and rules apply to flying near an airport and aerodrome.
We can fly close to buildings and people when we have consent of the owner and the people in close proximity have been briefed and are under the control of the pilot.
This allows us to do close survey work of building, roofs, building sites, hotels and golf courses.
