Without question, safety is our number-one priority. We believe in being ambassadors of this emerging capability, and understand that its misuse could endanger public safety. We take industry-leading steps to minimize risk and are extremely proud of our perfect safety record.

Before every flight, we conduct a multi-point pre-flight inspection of our aerial vehicles and inspect the entire flight area to check for any hazards such as trees, wires or obstructions. We require property owners permission for all flights, never fly over people or out of our direct line of sight, and brief a safety plan to all bystanders in case of an equipment failure. For indoor flights, only the pilot and safety briefed crew members are allowed in the space being filmed. We reserve the right to refuse a mission based on safety concerns.

The U.S. has the busiest and most complex airspace in the world, so compliance with the Federal Aviation Administration is crucial. Rest assured, the FAA has issued our Section 333 Grant of Exemption and a Part 107 Certificate of Waiver or Authorization.

Federal law regulates the commercial use of drones. Many operators and clients don’t understand the restrictions, exposing their businesses to substatial penalties and serious safety concerns. Flying Monkey Aerial Videographt mitigates the risk, and can facilitate safe and legal aerial operations. Contact us to discuss your project requirements.
