Terms & Conditions:

Site Survey, Booking, Deposit & Timing

Weather is an area that we can't control and can be very unpredictable here in the U.K. Unfortunately drones cannot operate in high winds or rain,  additionally, you may have specific requirements that restrict us in flying at specific times. We therefore have a flexible and pragmatic approach to scheduling our clients work.


What We Need From You

We request a comprehensive brief from yourselves, containing as much information as possible on what you want us to photograph or film. This will help us understand your vision. We require the location of the shoot (postcode) and a proposed date so can collate the correct data for the flight.

Site Survey

As soon as we have this information we will conduct an initial office based survey to ensure that there are no other factors that could restrict the flight path or permissions that need to be adhered to. 

Should Smart Aerial Services make up part of a larger production team we will still need to conduct our pre-flight survey, and potentially make a site visit to ensure we adhere to the CAA requirements.


Each job is unique, with a mixture of external influences that can affect where and when we can film  We plan ahead to make sure there are limited disruptions to the production.

Booking & Deposit

As soon as the initial flight survey is complete, Smart Aerial Services will then send you a quote, if you are happy with the quote a 25% deposit on booking will be required to secure a date.

Smart Aerial Services will monitor the weather up to 7 days before production, we will then make a call 48 hours before the flight. If the day is unsuitable to fly we will reschedule with no extra cost.


Due to the weather being so unreliable we will ensure we are flexible enough to accommodate a date change. If we can not rescheduledue to factors out of our control Smart Aerial Services do not offer a refund on the initial deposit.


If the decision is made by both parties that we continue to shoot on the day and we have bad weather the pilots will stay on-site as long as possible in hope the weather clears.


If we arrive on site and are unable to continue with the day and cannot fly we will charge the full amount, we will offer the next shoot at a discounted rate.


Days can be canceled prior to 7 days of the flight with no charge, anything canceled within the 7 days will loose the initial 25% deposit.
