Eyeup Assists CAA in Development of Audit Process
Eyeup’s safety management systems have been audited during a visit by the CAA, the auditor stating that he was “very impressed” by our operations and paperwork. The visit came after a request from the CAA, which really wanted to test their newly developed audit process with an experienced operator it could trust to provide feedback.
Both parties found the audit process incredibly valuable. We were able to provide guidance on how operators may react to the various stages of the process and how fair it felt. It was also great to spend time with one of the CAA’s experienced members of their UAV team, particularly at a time when the industry is facing regulatory change.
Eyeup were more than happy to assist the CAA in the development of it’s audit process and will continue to work with the regulator in support of its consultancy clients and fellow Drone Safe Register members.
Drones can do so much better than close airports
On 20th December 2018, Gatwick Airport, the UK’s second largest, was closed using drones with malicious intent.
This disappointed the vast majority of the drone community which is made up primarily of safety conscious, sensible individuals. As a contrast to the chaos caused at Gatwick, Eyeup would like to point out the good that drones can do…even in close proximity to aircraft.
Almost exactly two years before the Gatwick event, on 22nd December 2016, Eyeup Aerial Solutions was the first drone operator to gain approval to fly within the Heathrow perimeter. The airport was fully live on one of its busiest days of the year. After a total of 11 flights, we packed up and left, having gathered valuable data for our client about the condition of a large area of flat roof. There was no more cost effective way to carry out the inspection.
Eyeup are able to work efficiently and effectively with our clients to offer an unparalleled responsiveness while always remaining Professional – Creative – Safe.
We required someone to carry out a job never performed before at Heathrow, to meet and exceed all the stringent safety requirements of operating at an airfield and take control of all of the approvals process required. Up stepped Eyeup Aerial Solutions Ltd.
They worked on time, professionally and most importantly safety was their key concern. An excellent job surveying our warehouse roof and meeting our aim of clear stills and video footage to highlight any faults.Mike Ladd
Graham’s work is simply brilliant…….. I get a lot of people coming in to my hotel showing me their work and what they can offer, normally with limited success. However, when Graham showed me a photograph of previous work and what his vision was for the ‘perfect picture’ of The Compleat Angler, I was totally up for it. I was also very impressed with his professionalism, manner and sales approach. His first picture he did for us was amazing and is now on my landing page on the website with another great picture proudly on the wall for re-sale.
It’s great doing business with you and I look forward to a promising 2018 together.Gavin Webster
Eyeup Aerial Solutions
Professional – Creative – Safe.
Once upon a time, aerial photography and videography required expensive helicopter or aircraft rental to obtain shots that have a universal appeal.
Now, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles – drones – and remote cameras on portable masts can be used with a high degree of flexibility and creativity to capture images that were difficult or impossible to achieve using traditional methods. Aerial photography and videography can be used to enhance a marketing campaign, to help celebrate an event, record a beautiful property and even as an art form – the possibilities are endless.
Eyeup Aerial Solutions is a company based in Surrey and covering the South of England with UAV-centred aerial photography and videography services.
We can provide advice on what is possible with a high quality drone (probably more than you thought), what needs to be taken into account when planning a shoot and what the options are when a drone can’t be used safely. Eyeup will work closely with you to achieve your desired images and can also provide post-processing on stills and video.
We also work closely with wedding and events venues to provide you with a range of value added products and marketing images. Some of these are at zero cost and some will actually generate income for your business!
Commercial aerial work in the UK can only be legally carried out by companies or individuals holding the appropriate insurance and a Permit for Commercial Operations/Aerial Work issued by the Civil Aviation Authority. Be assured that Eyeup Aerial Solutions meet all these requirements and will always provide a service which is Professional, Creative and Safe.
We required some photographic and video footage of a brand new Woodland Education Centre that was tucked into a large area of ancient woodland. Graham took the time to explain the process and worked around our busy schedule and expertly negotiated fly-throughs and images within the tricky woodland setting. He managed to produce a stunning and professional suite of images and video at a lightning speed turn-around in time for out Royal Opening!
We are looking to get some more work done at a later date to help map the woodland for future education courses and would thoroughly recommend this professional service.Aimée Clarke
I am writing to thank you for the professional service provided by Eyeup Arial Solutions. The footage from the shoot has been used to great effect and has certainly helped us convey our product in a professional and unique way.
To effectively market products in the internet age we are all looking for better and better ways to engage with customers. The use of images and video is at the forefront of modern marketing and your interpretation of our vision was spot on.
Many thanks again and I will be recommending you to my colleagues.

Eyeup assists CAA with development of Operator Audit Process
The "very impressive" systems developed by Eyeup have been recognised by the CAA during a recent audit. The audit was not in response to complaints or questions over safety but at the request of the CAA which was looking for an operator it could trust to provide meaningful feedback.
Both parties found the exercise useful. Eyeup continues to improve its methodologies even further and was able to provide useful feedback to help the system better suit the way many operators work.
