There is a £50 administration fee for the completion all of paper work, log books, H&S etc. Travel is charged at £00.50 per mile in the UK. If accommodation is needed, this will be discussed with the client prior to shoot date, and will be billed separately. An initial 35% deposit will need to be paid to secure the booking, and final payment upon footage delivery and no later than 14 days from shoot date.
AP Flight Team will check all locations for safety restrictions and no-fly zones. But it is the client’s responsibility to inform and acquire any further permissions that may be needed for the photographing and filming of the location(s).
We will monitor weather conditions at the time of booking the job, and will continue to do so until the shoot date. Up to 48 hours before the shoot if the conditions are no longer deemed safe to fly, alternate shoot dates will be suggested, but only if the weather is not safe to fly. Within 48 hours of the shoot the job must be fully committed to and we cannot be held responsible for the weather.
If you’d like to enquire about booking, please do not hesitate to call the AP Flight Team or send us an email. This would need to include the following information:
Once we have revised the information provided, we can get back to you with feedback and availability, as well as the best pricing plan for your project.
Sometimes it may be necessary to do a pre-flight visit to a location to ascertain if it will be possible to fly and if so what permissions will be needed. However, usually just a post code or location of where and what we are filming will be enough for us to do a pre-flight survey online to see if there are any flight restrictions which we need to be aware of. Upon receiving your brief we will be able to inform you if we will need a site recce.
