WHY DO YOU ASK FOR A DEPOSIT?

We ask for a 25% deposit to confirm your booking as the CAA requirements for safe flying mean we have to prepare a detailed pre-deployment survey before we can fly at your location.  In the unlikely event of the survey being negative, we will let you know as soon as possible and refund your deposit.

The more information you can give us during the initial enquiry, the less chance there will be of us being unable to deploy.

YOUR QUESTIONS

WHERE ARE YOU NOT ALLOWED TO FLY?

The restrictions placed on SUSA (small unmanned surveillance aircraft) are detailed on our DRONE SAFETY page.  However, we will be able to give you more information if you contact us to enquire about a booking - there are lots of locations where we can fly safely so please do not be put off by the extensive regulations - it's part of our job to work through them on your behalf

ARE YOU INSURED?

Yes - we are covered by a £2,000,000 Public Liability Insurance Policy which meets the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) requirements and conforms

to EC Regulation Number 785/2004

WHAT ABOUT THE WEATHER?

Wind and rain can cause problems for drones so the weather is a very important consideration when we come to fly.   The maximum wind speed we would consider safe is 20 mph and that has to take gusts into account.   This means that we have to be flexible in how we schedule our deployments and we will be monitoring the weather closely prior to the date of deployment.

 

We will contact you 48 hours before the scheduled booking to confirm the deployment and check again with you before 6 pm the day before.

If the forecast is so poor that we can't fly, we will re-book your flight for a time when conditions are better.
  

DO I HAVE TO BE THERE WHEN YOU FLY?

It's is a very good idea for the client to be present as that will ensure we give you exactly what you want.  We do appreciate that it is not always necessary or practical for this arrangement so we will discuss this with you at the time of booking. If you can't be there we will need written permission to fly from the agreed site.

WHEN DO I HAVE TO COMPLETE PAYMENT?

Full payment should be made at least 7 days before deployment. For quick turn-around work, full payment will be requested at the confirmation of booking stage.    If deployment isn't possible on the scheduled day, we will rebook the flight for a time convenient to both parties.

If a flight is cancelled by Ibex Films Aerials because of technical reasons etc. your payment will be refunded in full.
