Aerial Imaging

Our specialized UAV team combines drones for aerial photography with wide ranging skill sets to deliver client specific aerial imaging services through-out Canada.

    Technology

We utilize a fleet UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), often referred to as drone aircraft, that are remotely controlled and assisted by GPS position and altitude.

These aircraft provide a super stable platform that allows us to gather photos and video, ranging from small 4 motor DJI Mavics (quadcopter) for confined areas, up to large 4-6 motor DJI drone systems with full 3 axis 360 degree gimbals carrying cameras.

The size and nature of these aircraft allow us to specialize in low altitude, high definition aerial imaging that traditional aircraft or ground based systems cannot obtain, in a safer and more economical manner.

Process

Our process begins with initial contact with our clients to discuss the specific needs, location, and deliverables. This is followed by an on site inspection and site survey to ensure the operation can be performed in a safe and effective manner.

Following a full review by our team, a statement of work will be provided outlining the deliverable and costs.

We work to a obtain SFOC certificate from Transport Canada for your project. Which can cover the different areas of Canada, including controlled airspace, in most cases we can forgo the typical application process and are basically pre-authorized for most locations in some regions.

This allow us to provide aerial services to our clients in a much condensed time-frame over the normal operation specific process that can take other operators up to 20 days or longer to obtain. (Some areas may still require specific SFOC applications.)

During the scheduled time we will arrive on site, setup, and perform the flight if the required conditions allow for safe and viable flight and shooting.

Once the flight operation is completed, we will review the material and provide feedback and samples to our client, along with the invoice for the services.

Following payment, the full media set will be provided to the client via an online download location or on physical media.

Rates

Rates vary on a project by project basis based on the scope and location and related factors. Hourly, full day, and project specific rates available. Included in the pricing is a minimum 2 man crew, aircraft, camera (unless one is provided by client), SFOC application, and liability insurance. We cover the full end to end solution for your specific operation. Work outside of Southern Ontario core area will incur travel costs.

Liability Insurance

We are fully insured for commercial UAV operations, with one million dollar coverage.

Commercial UAV Use in Canada

Within Canada the commercial use of UAVs is strictly regulated by Transport Canada. Any and all commercial work performed with remotely controlled aircraft must have a Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC) for each flight, along with proper UAV liability insurance.

Be sure to always use an operator that follows these regulations as you could be subject to fines and legal action if these are not in place.
