Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and Reviews for Ewins Aerial Photography.

Ewins Aerial is Fully Civil Aviation Authority licensed and fully insured


What is the range you can fly?
CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) regulations states that UAS systems must be flown within ‘visual line of sight’ in the UK. This gives us 500m horizontally and 400ft vertically bellow the drone.

Are you fully insured?
Yes we are fully insured for five million pounds liability

What are your flight times?
Flight times vary depending on the machine and the camera we use. Typically this is around ten minutes per flight and we carry plenty of spare batteries. With plenty of pre-flight planning this is usually more than enough.

Can we fly over water?
Yes we can fly over water but due to the increased risk there may be an increased charge.

What weather conditions can we fly in?
We can fly in winds up to 20mph although we prefer to fly when the winds are lower to ensure the safety. Gusting wind can cause poor quality video and so it is in the best interests of safety and quality to have a good weather window.

Do you need permission to fly?
To operate commercially in the UK you are required by law to be a qualified BNUC-S Pilot and the correct UAV insurance. We are both qualified and full insured. We need is the landowners permission to take-off and land. If we are in restricted air zone we will arrange permission with the CAA.

Customer Reviews for Ewins Aerial Photography

Review from BoBo Estate Agents

We (BoBo Architects) contracted Neil in order to undertake some aerial photography in support of a planning application in Devon. The work he produced was indispensable in producing the visualisations for the planning application submission, and clearly helped the eventual approval of the scheme. The images and video were very high in resolution and exactly as we had briefed. The results were delivered to us on the same day as his visit to the site. Neil was very professional in his approach to the project, and his services were very reasonably priced for the exceptionally high quality attained. We would unreservedly recommend Ewins and look forward to working with them again.

Review from Shaun Crocket

I asked Neil to do a drone survey of a chimney for a house we were buying and can’t recommend him enough – he was prompt, efficient & friendly and understood exactly what was needed. Plus his work resulted in a reduced purchase price – money well spent!

Review from Liam Southall

We used Neil’s drone services on our shoot. He was available at short notice and at a competitive price. He was flexible when the timings slightly changed and had some great kit. Cheers

Review from Herridge Property Consulting

Review from Fiona Laitinen

Neil and his team provided a wonderful service for our wedding day. He really captured the essence of our special day and the photos are absolutely amazing – ones i shall always treasure. Neil and his team were relaxed and inobtrusive on the day yet managed to create perfect romantic photos along with a wealth of excellent and innovative ones that reflect a spontaneity and a natural effect that are often missing.I would thoroughly reccommend Ewins Aerial Photography – in fact since our wedding 3 years ago he has, over the past year, done a number of fantastic photo shoots of our 17 month old son and we shall continue to use him to capture our son as he grows up.
