CAA and Pilots

Anyone can learn to fly a drone quadcopter. The new generation UAVs have been designed to be simple to operate.
However, besides being experienced in piloting the drone, the company has  professional business acumen and experience gained from different industries. This is coupled to the ability to fly safely and accurately in tricky and difficult often otherwise inaccessible locations;  over water, in jungle, in the mountains, in built-up areas and in the wilderness.

Dragonfly provides all this to produce great photos and videos as value added customer service. We love what we do and we're sure you will love the result too.

The Drone HD aerial photography and HD Video Productions and Survey Company.

Tosh (Torsten Fjastad), the DAPS ground safety officer for health, safety and environment is also the chief drone pilot.  He is accredited by the Civil Aviation Authorities (CAA) to fly commercially as required by law.

The aerial opportunities are endless.

The Drone quadcopter is more than just a helicopter.   The Drone is a small remotely controlled flying machine with a sophisticated video and still camera, offering affordable aerial photographic solutions at a fraction of the cost of full size helicopter services.

The pilots do not get airborne:  they stand or sit attentively and safely with the customer, operating the flying (SUSA?) quadcopter and the remarkable home seeking, remotely controlled UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) aircraft does all the clever flying.  The CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) has clear regulations governing commercial drone operations and drone pilots have to pass extensive practical and theoretical examinations before being granted a licence for commercial operation.  
DAPS has met all the requirements and has been granted its commercial licence.

DAPS carries full public liability insurance.

The right picture:

As an experienced drone operator, flying the drone to the target subject, aligning it, ensuring the light is adjusted and observing safety in relation to the subject matter is key to the quality of HD aerial photo and video imaging.  Similar to a helicopter, the quadcopter drone aerial photo and survey vehicle has the remarkable ability to safely photograph and video in high definition from otherwise inaccessible positions.

Besides flying the remotely piloted UAV, the experience of the pilot is also relevant and Dragonfly has gained years of expertise in industry, construction, land drainage and landscaping, golf course architecture and wild adventure across Africa and Europe.
