Drone Services from The Aerial Aspect

Aerial video, photography, 3D imagery, inspection and surveying

Abfad are now working with a local company offering Aerial Drone services, The Aerial Aspect, based near Redcar provide aerial video and photography for events, business, advertising, company videos, as well as for inspection and surveying. They can also produce 3D imagery using the latest in photogrammetry software, this is a useful means of inspection.

Drones for Inspection

The Aerial Aspect are able to stream live HD video from the aircraft to the ground, enabling their pilots and clients to see exactly what the camera sees in real time, permitting live angle and focus adjustments whilst on site, ensuring the client gets to view and capture the footage needed.

Damaged Roof Case Study

“We inspected the roof of this building, quickly and without the use of scaffolding. The building was no longer in use, but damage from severe winds caused part of the roof to blow off and become dangerous. We could quickly inspect the damage and an onsite engineer was able to assess the urgency of the danger and take the appropriate course of action”.
