Our Aim

Our aim is to assist in reducing health and safety across the construction industry by using drones to get to places which are of a higher risk to humans life. In 2018 we commenced training to obtained our Operational Authorisation  from the CAA.  This allows CJK Drones a trusted company to operate drones commercially during the day and night.

Our insurance is fully compliant with EU Regulation EC no 485/2004, which is currently set at £5m, but can be adjusted to suit the clients requirements. In 2020 we completed training for CAT 1 Thermography certification which allows the collection and evaluation of thermal data by drone or ground based camera.  This technology can be utilised across many industries.

We happy to talk about our technology and how we can assist your projects, so please feel free to get in touch.
