Drone Safety

Learn about our safety vision and how we provide the safest drone service in Perth

We care about drone safety

When considering the rules of flying drones, taking the appropriate safety measures is something we take pride in. Safety when operating a drone is crucial! If mishandled, using a drone can be extremely dangerous, particularly when navigated by an amateur. This is why it pays off to hire a licensed, insured UAV professional. In order to stay compliant, our pilots stay up to date with the latest drone safety procedures and regulations to ensure we can provide a quality service at no risk to your project or business.

How we offer safe drone operation

Firstly, 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.

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

Mission Planning

At Bird’s Eye Media, every job we do requires pre-mission planning to assess the drone conditions, weather safety and the area of operation. We engage with a range of platforms to plan our flight operations quickly, and accurately to get the best possible result. This also ensures we anticipate and carefully plan out our drone safety operations which comply with safety regulations. This allows us to capture the best of your project without any interruptions.

Drone safety Conditions

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.

Drone Safety Rules & Regulations in Australia

Complying to the drone rules and regulations is a massive part of practising drone safety. We operate our drones to the highest degree of safety that strictly adheres to the guidelines set by the Australian Government.  Whenever there are changes or updates to any rules or regulations regarding drone safety and operations, our pilots are required to read over the updated manuals before they operate a drone.

Here is a snippet of the rules that we actively follow:
