Tomorrow is our reward for working safely today.

Because Skyward shoulder the burden of planning for your project, we therefor ensure safety is forefront of the operation.

Pre-Arrival & On-Site Surveys

First of all, a detailed Operational Planning and Assessment Form is completed for every Job we do. Because every job is unique, this therefor determines both the feasibility and safety of the Operation.

Risk Assessments

Most importantly, throughout all aspects of Skyward Aerial operations, risks must be identified and assessed. As a result, operations can only commence if the risk is as low as reasonably possible.

Airspace Analysis

Also, airspace charts, NOTAM's (aviation warnings / notifications), satelite imagery and maps are all consulted so that any hazards are identified well in advance of an operation.

From Dusk til Dawn

Outdoors or In …

Night Operations

Some commercial drone companies are grounded half an hour before Sunset and consequently cant get in the air until 30 minutes after Sunrise. Because we hold permissions for flights any time, we can therefor conduct operations at anytime, day or night.

Indoor Operations

Maybe you're thinking of some cinematic shots inside your factory? Because we utilise the latest in compact 4k capable drone technology, Skyward can certainly accommodate.
