Why Use Drone Technology?
It's simply allowed us to deliver a World Class level of service in our core property management day to day business, we are able on inspections to show our landlords the real condition of their roofs, gutters and overall property highlighting trees that might be over hanging the neighbouring property or blocked guttering, we have successfully used our drones to benefit many landlords in many very different situations that without this technology we simply could never have been able to do or show the true extetent of a situation.
From a marketing point of view its a game changer as it allows us to capture images that stand out head and shoulders over ground based ones and the videography really hits the mark highlighting a properties locations and attractions that surround it from parks, schools, CBD and coastal walkway, it simply allows the prospective tenant to make a more informed decision and as we are finding time and time again its allowed prospective tenants offshore a real view of a property and an ability to make a far more informed decision.
Drone technology works extremely well with executive properties and this is one of the reasons we have so much success in the executive property market.
We have a fully qualified RPAS Pilot with his Wings Badge, we have studied Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems at Massey University's School of Aviation and our pilots complete yearly pilot proficiency testing to ensure they are meeting operational standards. We are the only property management company with Civil Aviation Authority of New Zealand Part 102 certification so we are professional unmanned aircraft operators with close to 100 operational flights and a 100% safety record. All our flights are booked on Airshare and our drones are sent away twice yearly for service and inspection to ensure they are airworthy and safe to operate.
When on operations our pilots and ground crew wear stand out safety vests, we ensure public safety at all times and place operational warning signs to ensure the public know whats going on, our Phantom drone is fitted with a MARS Parachute system is case of failure or bird strike.
Yes we have our drones and our operation fully insured.
What we use
We currently use a DJI Phantom 4 for our marketing and major inspection work, its fitted with a MARS Parachute system and can operate in wind speeds up to 35 km/h and has a top speed of 80 km/h and has collision avoidance detection system so it is very good when it come to operating around tight spaces.
We also operate a DJI Spark which for its tiny size is simply outstanding in tight spaces, we use this for checking in gutters and low level inspection work, this small machine can operate in 30 km/h winds and has a top speed of 50km/h.
Storm Damage/Natural DisasterStorm damage happens and Taranaki gets its fair share with seasonal storms and we all remember Cyclone Bola. Our drones allow us the ability to react fast and in an efficient safe mannerism to the aftermath of storms, we can assist with insurance claims and get clear precise images of the damage and we can give a landlord or assessor a 'live'feed via social media to see the damage first hand in a real time manner.
We will never forget the Christchurch earthquake and its aftermath and our drones can deploy at a moments notice to these disasters, we can provide real time 'live' feed to property owners and insurance companies and been Certified drone operators allows us to operate where others simply cannot operate.
Roof damage happens from time to time and can be caused from storm damage or an earth quake, in the past damage to roofs involved climbing a ladder to assess the damage first hand but our drones can hover over a roof and we can capture images or 'live' feed which offers a real time view of the damage and the ability of the property owner or insurance assessor to make informed decisions in a far more safe mannerism, the drones are a faster more efficient way of obtaining views of roof damage.
We work with a design and graphics and interactive company so can provide the aerial images or videograpghy for promotional or advertising for events and the likes and been Certified unmanned aircraft operators means we can operate in locations others cannot,we then pass these images or videograpghy onto our multi media company to produce the final product to suit your requirements.
