The Flight

ByM Aerial Photography operate under the conditions laid out in CAP 722 by the Civil Aviation authority within the UK.

Visual Line of Sight (VLOS) operations are up to a maximum distance of 500 mt horizontally (1km radius) and 400ft (120 mt) vertically from the Remote Pilot.

Flight times are typically around 10-20 minutes per battery set. These times may seem short, but with good planning, a lot can be achieved and we always carry plenty of batteries.
