When Accutest International arrive on site, we’ll meet with the client – or an authorised representative – and carry out a site walk around to discuss the brief to determine any key requirements and objectives of the project. It is the responsibility of the Pilot in Charge (PIC) to ensure that the take-off and landing sites are safe and that the weather conditions are suitable for aerial operations.
During the flight operations the client may join the crew at the discretion of the PIC. The operation may involve frequent landings for setting up shots and for battery changes and constant vigilance needs to be maintained for potential hazards or changing weather conditions. Once the operation has been completed, the PIC will agree with the client that all of the required footage has been obtained. If additional footage is requested then the PIC will determine whether it can be obtained within the window of operations or prevailing conditions.
