About Us

Hello! My name is Jack Hind and I am the director of DR1 Aerial Ltd, a leading commercial drone services business based in the north of England. Established in 2021, we are dedicated to providing exceptional aerial surveying services, with a particular focus on the surveying and construction sectors.

At DR1 Aerial Ltd, we harness the power of cutting-edge drone technology to offer services that significantly increase efficiency and productivity. By collecting data at a faster pace and reducing costs, we enable our clients to make informed decisions and streamline their operations. Our key services include topographic surveys, stockpile monitoring, and 3D modelling, all of which are tailored to meet the unique needs of each project.

DR1 holds an Operational Authorisation from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), giving us permission to fly any drone up to 25kg within a 30m/50m separation distance from uninvolved people. This authorisation, coupled with our experience and expertise in drone piloting, ensures that we can provide the highest standards of quality to our clients in every project we undertake. Additionally, our status as a RICS Technical Partner further solidifies our reputation as trusted providers of aerial surveying solutions.
