We have been flying UAVs on a professional basis since early 2013, and prior to this we filmed and photographed from the air using DSLR cameras and a helicopter or Cessna aircraft. We combine 25 years' experience in professional photography and 20 years' experience in private aviation piloting with the latest technology in UAVs. We currently use the following UAVs:
Welcome to Skyworks WA - one of the most experienced Unmanned Aerial System/Vehicle ("UAS/UAV" or drone) companies in Western Australia for remote aerial filming and photography services. We are also a "one-stop shop" for promotional film making combining stunning aerial footage with ground-based video and creative editing.
Skyworks WA is a Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) registered UAS Operator Certificate Holder (CASA.UOC.0066), with a night rating, and has Public Liability insurance coverage.
These UAVs are site specific and are able to safely go where a full sized aircraft or helicopter would be restricted. They have minimal environmental impact, fly more safely in sensitive areas, and at a fraction of the cost. They can be deployed right from site within a few minutes of arrival, and can fly for up to 17 minutes before a change of batteries and redeployment.
With this equipment and expertise we can;
We tailor our services according to the client's requirements, and also offer editing services. So, if it's an event, a project, a property or just an idea, the chances are we can photograph, film and edit for you at a very affordable price. As a Member of the Events Industry Association (EIA), we are committed to the highest standards of professionalism and service. We take risk and safety very seriously and our pilots work directly under our control and supervision. We do not "rent out" our UAS Operating license to be used by less experienced subcontracting RPAS pilots.
Further information on the application of UAVs can be found on our Services page, while examples of our films and photographs can be viewed on our Videos and Photo Gallery pages.
