Legal, Safety and Flying Considerations when carrying out aerial inspections and surveys with drones.


Our pilots hold full permissions for Commercial Operations granted by the Civil Aviation Authority and are fully insured. We have experience flying across the UK and in different Terrain and scenarios.



When we have received an enquiry for a prospective job, one of our drone pilots will carry out a thorough pre-deployment survey. The pre-deployment survey consists of a variety of safety checks including other airspace users, required permissions and weather. We always ensure that we strictly adhere to the regulations of the CAA and safety is our number one priority.


When our team has arrived on site we carry out an on-site survey which identifies any potential on-site hazards which were highlighted in the pre-deployment survey. This process ensures that our drones are flown safely and to high standards, even if this means re-scheduling for a different day at no added cost.

The Media Straw endeavours to deliver high-quality results and carry out our flights with the upmost professional conduct. We will select the appropriate drone for the job and ensure that we capture exactly what you need. We are happy for clients to accompany us during the flight, photos and videos are captured live on the ground.

Post Flight

Once we have completed our flight all of our footage and photos will be available within 24 hours after full post-production and editing and captured in High Definition 4K imagery and Video.
