For one of our most recent and more challenging projects, we were commissioned by another drone operator to acquire some photos and video footage for a client promotion. Due to our proximity and knowledge of the area chosen for filming, it made sense to use a local business such as ours rather than investing additional time and subsequent cost in taking on the project directly.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, during periods of lockdown Golf courses have been forced to close to players and members, but this has given ground staff the opportunity to undertake work on a scale they wouldn’t normally be able to do. V1AS joint business owner Dave and shareholder Damon are keen golfers and members of an excellent North West based golf club. Ensuring that Covid precautions and social distancing measures were strictly adhered to, we were able to use the down time to take our drones on to the course and obtain large scale models to provide invaluable test data and further develop our photogrammetry solution.
