We’ve passed written and practical exams in order to be certified. We also have an exquisite safety record and risk assessment.
We use a DJI Inspire 1 Pro and a DJI Mavic, in order to capture the essence of what you’re trying to film. You will be able to see exactly what’s being captured, thanks to our pilots’ live point-of-view display.
Being a licensed company yields numerous advantages. By using our Av1.ma Aerial production, you’ll be making use of the same advantages. Also, you’ll be granted peace of mind that allows both parties to carry in a professional, calm, and safe manner.
Is Av1.ma fully insured and licensed?
Well yes, yes we are.
We have cherry-picked our team members, and they have undergone and passed written and practical exams. That shows their level of competency and their ability to operate an SUA.
Can you use your drones indoors?
Our drones have ‘visual positioning systems’; this helps us have indoor flights. All that’s required is permission from the owner and a full risk assessment. Although, it has been tremendously successful, and safe to use a gimbal rig that’s stabilized.
How long can you fly for?
Our drones can fly for good 14-18 minutes, generally speaking. However, strong winds can cause the drone’s batter to deplete – as the drone fights against it. However, we can charge on site for jobs that require longer flight times.
In our experience, 14-18 minutes is more time than enough to obtain captivating videos and images.
Is the weather a problem? Are there any circumstances where you can’t fly?
We avoid flying in snow, rain, and wind above 15mph. Our drones’ electronics are highly sensitive. But, weather can be predicted, therefore, we have a forecasts team. They keep an eye on forecasts and inform us on whether we should fly on this weather.
How far, fast and high can your drones go?
Our pilots must be within direct visual contact of the drone and must be no more than 500m away. The drones can go up as high as 120m.
Can you Livestream to a bigger screen?
We sure can!
Our drones have an HD download link; this means that we can share what we’re filming in real-time, no matter the screen size. We can also Livestream to your audience via Facebook live.
How many crew members are needed to fly a drone?
Usually, we advise an additional camera operator. However, it often depends on the type of job.
