Spider sets the standard for UAV (Drone) safety and operational preparedness. We work closely with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and other governing bodies to ensure that we are in full compliance with their regulations. The drone industry is a fast changing environment technically and with regard to regulation. With our help the CAA and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) are currently working to provide a better standard for drone operators worldwide.
Spider was the first foreign operator of drones to work in France as well as Spain. We worked closely with the Ministere du Developpement durable (DGAC) in France, as well as the Agencia Estatal de Seguridad Aerea (AESA) in Spain to gain permissions to legally work within their airspace. We currently operate in: UK, France, Northern Ireland, Balearic Islands, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Germany, Greece and Malta (We're adding new countries every month).
Among one the many of Spider’s accomplishments there are a few stand out. Most notably, Spider has flown one of our large drones on the set of StarWars and out of the Bow Room of Buckingham Palace. This is a great example of our level of professionalism and ability. Other sites that Spider has flown include Blenheim Palace, Highclere Castle, Banburgh Castle, London City Centre, Glasgow City Centre, Edinburgh City Centre, Bristol City Centre, Birmingham City Centre, Manchester City Centre and many other cities around the world.
Spider’s Managing Director, Ben Sheppard, has 25 years of experience flying drones, radio controlled vehicles and robotics fabrication.
Spider’s Operations Director, Mike Bishop, has 15 years of experience flying drones and has a vast knowledge of the electrical systems on the aircraft that ensure they are technically sound.
Spider has logged over 1000 hours of flying in our 5 years of operations. Read Less
