Our primary concerns while operating are the safety of people and property, and of course the safe return of the RPA (remotely controlled aircraft) to it’s takeoff spot delivering exceptional aerial video and photographs for our clients.
The guidelines under which we operate are taken from the AESA.
The AESA guidelines in Spain according Ley 18/2014, de 15 de octubre state:
- No flying within a 8 km radius of airports and heliports.
- No flying over a highway.
- No flying over residential areas.
- To have theoretical and practical exam passed by pilot and be in possession of relevant certificates.
- To have medical examination Level-2 passed by pilot and be in possession of relevant certificates.
- To have public liability insurance of 1.000.000,00 euros
In addition, we follow a code of conduct when flying which includes the Agencia Estatal de Seguridad Aérea (AESA) guidelines:-
- Always keeping the RPA within line of sight of the operator/spotter and more than 500 meters away (we do hold permission to fly BVLOS mode (below the visual line of sight), in this case we use smaller drones (<2kg of maximum take off weight) to comply with current regulations).
- Flying no higher than 120m (400 feet).
- We will only fly over a property that is under our control and we do have permission from owner or relevant organizational bodies.
- We will not fly over crowds.
- We will not fly at night.
