What are the benefits of outsourcing drone operations and services?
Drone flight operations are heavily regulated within Australia which often leads to projects not being able to proceed legally. Outsourcing drone flight operations ensures that your project is being conducted legally and efficiently by someone who is able to guarantee the desired results. The cost of specialised equipment and accreditation is also high, and it is often financially beneficial to outsource commercial drone operations to a professional provider.
What is the average lead time for a drone project?
The average lead time between project initiation and first flight is about 1 week for standard projects. This is due to the requirement to submit various flight documentations which govern approval of flight and furthermore, preparing relevant equipment for a successful and safe flight. Some projects may require special government approvals which can take longer to process.
There are also many locations across Australia that UAVs are able to be flown without submitting approval and can be flown with shorter lead times. If you need your drone project organized quickly, contact us to get an initial timeframe estimate straight away.
Where can you fly drones in Sydney?
For unlicensed users, drones cannot be flown within 5.5km of any traffic-controlled airport, meaning most of Australia’s major cities are off limits. Licensed commercial operators can fly almost anywhere given the appropriate project preparation, and documented approvals by CASA.
Can you fly my custom payload or use a custom drone platform for a specialised project?
As part of our custom solutions offerings, we are excited to explore the possibilities of using custom payloads or drone platforms to be used for your project. Contact us to find out if your project proposal is feasible and whether it conforms to government regulations.
