Legal and Safe Operations
There are legal and safety requirements that dictate the number of personnel we deploy to an assignment. The majority of our assignments require image capture from significant height, are in prime populated locations and in or near airspace.
The higher we fly the Drone, the higher the risk should a system fail. We manage these risks by deploying additional personnel, safety controllers and observers, who job is to manage those risks.
It is common that we deploy a minimum of 4 personnel (Pilot, Photographer, Safety Controller and Observer, to these type of assignments to be legal and safe.
