We provide stunning aerial photography, video, survey and mapping services throughout the UK 

Whether it’s land, property and development projects, leisure and tourism or something in between - we have you covered. 
All our UAV operators are BNUC-S qualified and have permission from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to operate commercially. For peace of mind, we also have extensive industry specific public liability insurance in place. 
 
In the UK, commercial drone pilots are required by law to attain a Permission for Commercial Operations from the Civil Aviation Authority. This document demonstrates that pilots have proven their piloting competence and knowledge of air law to operate in UK airspace under a specified set of rules. The PfCO allows the holder relaxed regulations in comparison to hobbyist pilots and obviously permission to carry out commercial operations.  
 
Pilots conducting commercial flights that do not hold a current PfCO are breaking the law, as are the people that hire them...so please make sure any operators you hire have a current PfCO. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Key Personnel 

DAN ELVIN 
 
Airmotion Ltd was set up by Dan Elvin following 14 years working in the land, property and development industry. The idea for the business came from Dan's frustration with existing mapping systems (such as Google Earth) when completing day to day tasks. From this, Dan identified how new technology could greatly assist productivity and improve the quality of his work.  
 
This initial idea has since sparked a raft of other applications and Airmotion now offer a wide variety of services which appeal to numerous industries. 
 
Dan is a fully qualified Chartered Town Planner with professional accreditation from the Royal Town Planning Institute. This experience enables Dan to add value and quickly interpret client briefs. 
 
When Dan has a spare minute or two he enjoys travel, sport, real ale, photography and cars. 
KATIE ELVIN 
 
Katie primarily runs our social media and marketing campaigns. She also undertakes administrative duties, managing the day to day operations and finances of the business. 
 
Outside of work, when Katie isn’t busy being a Mum, she enjoys drawing, reading and the odd glass of prosecco. 

Our Equipment 

We primarily use the DJI Inspire 2 with Zenmuse X5S Camera.  
 
This high-end UAV is a common choice amongst Hollywood movie directors and is capable of recording incredible cinematic 4k footage whilst travelling at speeds of up to 58mph. It can climb at 6m/s and descend at 9m/s. 
With built in obstacle sensing systems and a live video feed back to ground using new Lightbridge technology, we are able to view and select the perfect shot whilst the aircraft is in the sky. Every camera setting can be controlled remotely from the ground including focus, aperture and format, enabling you, the client to pick the perfect shot. 360° is possible through the 3-axis gimble with pinpoint-precise motor rotation. 
Occasionally we use the DJI Phantom 4 Pro. The camera is equipped with a 20 mega-pixel sensor capable of shooting 4k. 
Following the client brief we will choose the most appropriate UAV for the job. We always bring a back up UAV and spare equipment to every job. 
We utilise a number of different software packages which enable us to edit photographs and video; and produce extremely detailed mapping, survey and 3D modelling data.
