It has arrived, the bad weather.
We are ready to deal with any emergencies that may arise. Just call me on the phone, email or web form.
Well, here we are again.
It has been quite busy with mainly ground operations .
A couple of Drone Operations also.
Quite a number of Vehicle Incidents, House Subsidence, Scene of Incident to name but a few.
Called out on a Drone Search for missing animal by Drones Search and Rescue UK.
Had to obtain permission from Coventry Airport ATC as it was in the FRZ area (Restricted Flight Zone).
ATC were very helpful and permission was given. All in a matter of minutes. Flight took place but no sign of the animal. Later reported in the area of the Coventry Memorial Park on the other side of city. Council permission required as well for this and it was felt that the time needed would negate using a drone so ground searchers were considered more practical. The happy news is that the animal was found and recovered with apparently little damage despite a number of scrapes with cars.
Emergency roof inspection on a block of flats after heavy rain and water flowing into service and stairs area.
Roof drain blocked with leaves. and flooded over top of drainage area.
I guess that is about it for the moment, hoping to get some good drone shots of winter scenes if the snow arrives!
As the season creeps into Autumn and the leaves start to descend like snowflakes I start to prepare for an increased drone requirement.
In the last few weeks a number of roof inspections and a Search on behalf of Drone Search and Rescue UK have taken place. Just a warm up for the inclement weather to come.
Whilst Drone Services are now my main occupation I still do quite a lot of work for insurance companies at ground level.
Be it vehicle accident inspections or house subsidence issues or any other issues, I still keep my feet firmly on the ground. Photography is now used a lot as a form of documenting instead of the old pen and paper method.
Poor weather will inevitably bring an increase in car accidents as well as drone operations.
Lets hope everyone can stay safe on the roads.
Well that's it for my first attempt at opening a blog.
I first picked up a camera when 18yrs of age to follow my Astronomy interests. A lot of freelance photographer and videographer years later I have progressed to drone photography/videography in addition.
