Drone Surveys & Inspection Carlisle

Carlisle Drone Airspace Map


A border city in the North West of England, Carlisle is located approximately 70 miles north of Lancaster, just 20 miles north of Penrith on the M6. Carlisle Lake District Airport lies 5 miles to the northeast of Carlisle, with the Runway Protection Zone of its FRZ (Flight Restriction Zone) extending towards the centre of Carlisle. Being a hub for trains travelling both North to South and East to West, there are many train lines converging on the city, which must be taken into account when planning flights around the airspace, as Network Rail have their own regulations regarding drones around their property in addition to CAA regulations. While drone flights require greater planning and authorisation in and around restricted zones, this does not mean that we are unable to fly in these areas. Our trained pilots, alongside our experienced administrative team, will work together to gain the permissions to carry out work in the trickiest of locations!

Drone Survey Carlisle

Here at Drone Site Surveys, we enable the construction industry to work smarter by using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs/Drones) to inspect, measure and map areas without the need for time consuming and expensive equipment hire. By having a drone survey across Carlisle, you negate the need for scaffolding, cherry pickers or other ways of viewing your building or construction site at height.

As a CAA approved drone company and a Construction Line Gold accredited business, we have undertaken 1000s of drone surveys across the Carlisle and the wider Cumbria region

Using the most modern drone equipment we can provide images and video of your structures at incredible heights. All of our media is in super high resolution with images and video available up to 4K. We can then back these images with a report for you and your team to understand issues that require further invasive inspection.

Drone Inspections Carlisle

If you don’t require a report you may just wish to inspect your site in Carlisle. Our pilots can work with you or your surveyors to inspect the whole building or focus on sections most important to you. With our technology we have systems such as live streaming allowing viewing by wearing a virtual reality headset. Allowing you to attend the site and direct our pilots to inspect areas you wish. The remote streaming allows you and your team to watch the drone inspection take place. Having direct communication with the pilot you can again point us in the right direction or get a closer more detailed look at your assets.

With our drone inspections, we deliver all footage in high quality with resolutions up to 4K available. Inspecting your assets from the air using drones provides a cheaper, faster and more reliable way of inspection without the need for scaffolding, cherry pickers or other expensive equipment. Not only that, from site visit to the delivery of images can be done within a 48 hour turnaround. Our drone inspections are delivered via a secure, password secure URL for you to share with your team, suppliers or contractors that may be carrying out repairs.

Drone Mapping Carlisle

Along with our surveys and inspection, we can provide in depth mapping for your site. Using high quality images, high precision GPS and photogrammetry, we can map your site so that you don’t need to visit. 

This highly detailed map can help solve clarity issues along with being able to see contour lines, and accurate borders (accurate to 1cm). These can then be overlaid on to images to allow you to build up the ultimate picture of your construction site. You can even combine our drone mapping with construction site progress and time lapse video to provide you with an ultimate overview of your construction progress from start to finish.

Carlisle City Council Drone and UAV Use Policies

The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) published the rules which are expected to increase the number of drone users after the distinction between recreational and commercial applications was removed.

The regulations, which come into force from December 31 2020, group drones into risk categories of high, medium and low, with all required to be registered with the CAA.

Low-risk drones will have operational limitations but will not need authorisation for flights.

Authorisation will be needed for medium-risk drones depending on a risk assessment, while high-risk craft will have to observe aviation rules.

The guidance mirrors that of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency, which from January 1 2021 will unite drone rules across the EU, Norway and Iceland.
