What about safety?
To ensure a safe flight, we start with a risk analysis before we make our flight plan.
The reason of this analysis is to identify the possible risks, like:
– specific characteristics of the environment
– weather forecast (rain, wind force)
– presence of people on location
Besides the risk analyses, the flight will be executed by a certified pilot and co-pilot.
