The safety of people and property is our utmost priority.
As per the CAA guidelines the safety of the public, clients and crew during any shoot is our number one priority.
We are fully insured for aerial work and our operations manual - which details all our safety and flight procedures - is approved by the Civil Aviation Authority.
To ensure flight safety the pre-production stage is particularly important. This is in-depth and ranges from initial basic checks such as the altitude of the proposed flight area, to checking airspace restrictions, informing local Air Traffic Control and ensuring weather conditions are suitable prior to take-off.
LRW films are currently insured with £1m public liability to fly at altitudes of up to 400ft (122m) with Permissions for Commercial Operation (PfCO) granted by the CAA, our operators are RPQ-s qualified operating drones adhering to strict safety and operational rules.
Flying will be according to the Air Navigation Order (ANO), CAP 393 "Air Navigation: The Order and Regulations" and CAP 722, "Unmanned Aircraft System Operations in UK Airspace - Guidance". This ANO articles relevant to UAV's/drones will be followed at all times.
All remote operators working for LRW films adhere to ANO 2016 published by the CAA, including flights within congested areas. A congested area is defined as being ‘any area of a city, town or settlement which is substantially used for residential, industrial, commercial or recreational purposes’.
We have third party liability insurance and always carry out a pre-flight survey and risk assessment prior to carrying out a project.
Failsafe Equipment; LRW films and its aerial filming equipment have been assessed by the Resource Group – Europe’s leading independent Light UAS Accreditation Specialist for assessing ‘Airworthiness & Pilot Qualifications’.
Our flying rigs are fitted with fail safe return-to-home frequencies if the operator is incapacitated or radio signal is lost with the drone.
