Drones and Aerial Video

Nick is an experienced and fully qualified drone pilot

Nick has extensive experience operating drones for aerial video and photography (see showreel above), as well as a range of commercial air applications where precision and consistency are key requirements.

Nick is a qualified drone pilot and drone pilot instructor, holding a CDP-C™ for Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) up to 7 kg takeoff weight. The CDP-C™ is a UK qualification recognised for commercial aerial work by the UK Civil Aviation Authority, the Civil Aviation Department, and almost all aviation authorities in Europe.

The CDP-C™ allows for the application of permits in Hong Kong for commercial aerial work using drones which would otherwise be illegal under the current air regulations. In addition, Nick has third party liability insurance coverage up to HK$22 million.

Nick is also a member of ARPAS-HK, the Hong Kong chapter of the international Association of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems, a non-profit organisation that works with aviation authorities around the world to develop and implement effective policies for the safe use of drones and UAS for commercial purposes.

Nick has recently founded a sister company, Dronesurvey Asia to provide precision aerial mapping, surveying and industrial inspection services to the infrastructure, construction and development sectors in Hong Kong and SE Asia. Learn more at Dronesurvey Asia.
