We’ve recently been receiving an increased amount of enquiries from schools that wish to improve their school marketing efforts by including drone footage for schools to their photography or videography packages. So we thought we’d write a blog to tell you more about our drone services for school marketing, how we provide the service and why schools should use our drone solution.
How we provide drone footage for schools
All our drone pilots are fully licensed with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). As a result, this means we understand the legalities of flying a drone such as not being able to fly a drone above 120m.
Flying drones can make members of the community a little nervous, so we inform the police that a drone will be flying in the local area so they can confidently handle any reports and reassure members of the community that the drone is legally flying.
Drones cannot be used in all areas of the UK, these are known as non-flight zones. Therefore, schools near MOD bases, airports, or prisons, will either not be permitted to fly or we will need to seek special permission – We sort all of these elements before coming to your school to alleviate your workload.
