Last month we were extremely fortunate to have been commissioned to undertake a 6-12 month drone progress reporting schedule, involving four separate industrial development sites in the Avonmouth area. Although the end client is based in Israel, our immediate contact has provided Vistaworx with several aerial filming projects over the past couple of years.
Back in August I found myself working with David Hart of Icebox Aerial Media, yes, the same David Hart that works with Vistaworx, and we were involved with shooting material for the latest EDF TV commercial. It was frought with anxiety, as we prayed the weather would turn out as it had been predicted by all the weather forecasts. Yes, it did, and we were blessed with a stunning sunset. Another happy client.


Here is our latest corporate video production, a short corporate film we produced on behalf of Assura, who invest in and manage primary care medical centres across the UK. It was the pre-opening of Cinderford Medical Centre and was for the company's investor presentation that took place in September.


Last month, regardless of Covid, was a very busy time. We had our usual drone progress reporting with Somerset County Council, down in Bridgwater, a number of other small projects and also the most interesting, a day at Hinkley Point C with David Hart, capturing sunset shots for a short documentary for EDF. It was a challenging task, but as always when aerial filming at HPC, safety throughout every task is always at the forefront of everything we do.

The UK is to withdraw from the European Union aviation safety regulator (EASA) after the Brexit transition period, Grant Shapps has confirmed.
The transport secretary said many of the most senior figures at the organisation headquartered in Cologne, Germany were British and that they would gradually return to the UK throughout this year as regulatory powers reverted to the Civil Aviation Authority.

“As you would expect from an independent nation, we can’t be subject to the rules and laws made by somebody else, so we can’t accept rules from the EU commission and we can’t accept rulings in terms of court cases from the European court of justice or anybody else, any more than the US would,” he told Aviation Week in Washington.

“A lot of the expertise [EASA has] is UK expertise, in fact … A lot of the key leading lights were Brits.”
The Tory MP added that the UK would seek to be “particularly forward-leaning” in the technology and automation sectors. “We’ll make sure our legislative framework is in a great place to enable those kinds of organisations to excel in the UK market,” he said.
The aerospace trade body ADS, which represents more than 1,100 UK businesses, said the decision could put high-skilled jobs at risk.
“We have been clear that continued participation in EASA is the best option to maintain the competitiveness of our £36bn aerospace industry and our access to global export markets,” the chief executive, Paul Everitt, said.
A beautiful day today with plenty of sun shining across Redrow's new development of 170+ houses in Winscombe, north Somerset. Not particularly accepted with open arms with the rest of the residents of the village, hardly surprising when you see the size of the area from the air!
