SERVICES & SPECIALITIES
We offer our services to a broad base of clients working within the following fields.
Dorset Aerial Video & Photography
As CAA licensed operators for UAV’s (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles / Drones) 400 feet Films upholds industry regulations. These regulations protect both us and those we work with, keeping all insurances valid. The restrictions can be very detailed. There are some major factors worth noting.
Each Dorset Drone Videography job will be risk assessed on an individual basis.
What we require:
- Landowners permission for take off and landing.
- A maximum height of 400 feet above ground level.
- Maintaining a line of sight at all times to the UAV to a max distance of 500m.
No flying directly over people, roads & buildings which are not under the control of the film crew. A minimum of 50 meters distance to be maintained from these objects.
- If we are flying near to an airport or aerodrome, we may need to contact Air traffic Control. Checking with them that it is safe to operate at a certain height on a specified date and time.
Certain restrictions apply to central areas of London with additional permissions to fly needed to be sought from the C.A.A.
Safety is of the greatest importance
Often it is necessary to do a pre-flight location visit to ascertain safety. Usually this can be done with a postcode or gps position of where we will be filming. We can conduct a pre-flight survey online to check any restrictions that may be in place in the area. The pilot has final say if conditions and locations can be ‘deemed safe’ to conduct work as a Dorset Drone Videographer.
