Turbine Inspections

 Our pilots are GWO qualified for offshore wind turbine work, including offshore first aid, survival at sea and fire fighting. 

The offshore wind turbine inspections total over 360,000 metres of blade inspection. Onshore we have surveyed over 175,000 metres of turbine blades. Our pilots hold the record for the most offshore 6.75mw turbines successfully inspected in one day.

Rooftop Inspections

 We can provide detailed rooftop inspections in order to help our clients with preventative measures and showcase any existing or potential faults, all whilst keeping feet safely on the ground. Our 'Congested Area Permission' from the CAA allows our experienced pilots to fly as close as 5 metres from People, Vehicles, Vessels and Structures not within our control. This allows us to legally inspect the most hard to reach areas in some of the busiest cities in the UK in the safest manner possible.

LiDAR Mapping

Using our range of Light Distance and Ranging cameras, we are able to provide centimetre accurate 3D mapping of large areas of land, such as moorland, which has proved beneficial for the planning of conservation and restoration works.

Culvert Inspections

 Using our specialist drones, we can inspect underground drainage systems without the need for any ground penetration. This enables us to provide our clients with clear reports of condition and allows preventative maintenance to be planned while reducing the risk of human injury.
