Drone Aerial Photography in Leeds – The Legal Way!

Drone Aerial Photography Hire Services for the Leeds Area

Drone aerial photography in Leeds often requires special permissions and co-ordination to film in a safe and legal fashion. The close proximity of Leeds Bradford Airport means that many areas in the Leeds and Bradford areas are ‘no fly zones’ for drone filming and photography.

Leeds City Council regularly books our drone aerial survey team to provide updates on the Leeds Flood Alleviation Scheme on the River Aire. We produce monthly construction site update videos and aerial photographs for schemes in the city centre and at Knostrop Weir. In addition we also have a time lapse camera installed at Crown Point Bridge.

Hopgrove provided aerial photography for the Brownlee Triathlon based at Harwood House near Leeds. Our team was commissioned by Swim Smooth to capture aerial video of swimmers in the lake for coaching purposes.  Harwood is in the no fly zone protecting Leeds Bradford Airport and we acquired special permission from the CAA to fly in this location.

We also provide aerial video and photography for The Collective at Leeds based CGI company. Our drone aerial photography is used to produce 3D visualisation for construction projects in the area.

How We Help Clients With Drone Filming in Leeds

Because Hopgrove are fully certified by the Civil Aviation Authority for commercial drone filming work in Leeds and Yorkshire, we are able to film from the air with all of the required permissions in place and ensure we are always legally compliant on location. We are able to obtain special exceptions and permissions for filming in No Fly Zones and work closely with Air Traffic Control to ensure flight safety and legality

Together with the £10 million public liability insurance we carry and the CSCS construction site certification for site safety, we were able to film alongside your teams as they go about their work.

We use drone systems and support technology from the market leaders in the drone and aerial filming industry. The DJI Inspire drones have quiet, vibration free brushless electric motors to enable unobtrusive filming with battery technology that allows practical and effective flight times.
