Drone Safety

We care about drone safety

Safety is the most important aspect of any drone flight. This technology can be very dangerous in an amateurs hands and pays to hire a licenced, insured UAV professional. All Birds Eye Media pilots have certifications issued by the Civil Aviation Authority of Australia and operate under a UOC, which is a licence for a business to legally conduct drone operations.

When assessing the location you would like to shoot in we always consider if the area is safe to operate a drone.

As a rule of thumb, we can safely operate a drone if we can:

  • Safely take off
  • Maintain clear line of sight
  • Not fly above 400ft without area approval
  • Not fly closer than 5.5km of any airport or helicopter pad without approval from CASA
  • Not fly closer than 15m to any people
  • Not fly over crowds and populated areas.

Important Drone Safety Considerations

Our drones are always in peak condition when they take flight. That is because we keep our drones regularly maintained and cleaned to minimise any chances of drone accidents occurring. We comply to Australian drone rules and regulations, servicing our drones every 6 months, replacing the props every 3 months, and replacing the drone batteries within half of its expected lifetime. We also perform visual safety checks before every flight.

Weather Safety

We keep our finger on the pulse with the weather! It is an important part of drone safety. We utilise a series of platforms such as airport weather reports and Oz runways to plan and navigate our flight path safely for your project. Combined with our experience and knowledge, our pilots are always able to stay situationally aware during operations to make swift decisions should there any conflict with flight safety.

Area Safety

Scoping the safety of an area of operation is a crucial part of staying compliant to drone rules and regulations.  We investigate the geographical area of the intended operation to gain a strong grasp of planning the drone safety route to be efficient and safe while capturing the best shots. Using platforms such as Google Satellite maps and Oz runways, we can clearly see buildings, bushland, hills, roads, and runways to safely chart a route.

Frequently asked questions

All our pilots have a certification that was issued by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority of Australia and we operate under our own REOC. This is a special licence that allows a business to legally conduct drone operations. Prior to each flight, we check the location of where you would like to shoot and clarify if it is in a controlled or un-controlled air space.

  • We check VTC maps & aviation maps to see if possible, to legally conduct flights
  • We check weather on airport and various other information portals
  • Before every flight we get in contact with property owners and obtain written consent
  • Our pilots conduct a pre and post drone checks
  • Complete safe work method statements
  • We perform a job safety analysis
  • Log all flights
