Licenses &

Enhanced Permissions


Eastwood Media are drone filming experts with many years of experience as a commercial operator. We have collected all manner of aerial imagery from sweeping cinematic shots to live sporting events to 3D mapping and data collection and everything in-between. We have held a Permission For Commercial Operations with the Civil Aviation Authority since 2015 and have striven to improve our operating scope through obtaining licenses to fly drones in other countries and obtaining enhanced permissions in the UK.

Operating Special Case

Eastwood Media have an Operating Special Case in place with the Civil Aviation Authority that allows our pilots to legally fly with reduced distances between our drones and people & property that is not under our control. We can fly drones in congested areas where other operators may not be able to.
