thermal imaging by drone

Drone Thermal Imaging is growing at a rapid rate and for good reason.

Traditional methods of performing thermal imaging surveys are costly and hugely time-consuming.

Using drones, you will be cutting the time of traditional surveys by more than half as well as saving you money.


Still-Live Media prides itself on providing quality UAV or Drone services while keeping costs within reach of all customers. 

We operate to the highest standards of quality and safety.

Still-Live Media work within regulations laid out by the CAA to keep ourselves and others safe.

Operating to a max height of 400ft (120m) the shot options available to you are near endless.

The capabilities of our platforms allow us to offer you the shots you require at height or up close and personal to the action.

We are also fully insured with public liability cover of £2,000,000 which can be increased for qualifying projects.


Still-Live Media is now offering RPQ’s courses.

Intensive ground school training and an online based learning system assist students in obtaining permissions to operate a drone commercially.

This is known as a PfCO (Permission for Commercial Operations issued by the CAA) (Civil Aviation Authority)

All Ground School training is carried out and processed by the UK’s longest running NQE (National Qualified Entity) RUAS.

Flight assessments are completed following the compilation of your FRC’s (Flight Reference Cards) and Operations Manual.

Students will be provided comprehensive templates to complete the above by RUAS.

Our goal is to provide students with the highest quality training to ensure they become safe, responsible and competent UAV pilots.

A variety of different commercial drone training courses are available regardless of your experience, learning style (including online learning)  and what disciplines you are working towards.


Drone Training includes:

Introduction to Flight Training

RPQ-s – standard training for full commercial drone operations

Online drone training – RPQ-s e-learning

Operation Manual Reviews for renewal or first submissions

Flight Assessments

Night drone operation training and assessment

Extended Visual Line of Sight flight assessment

Operational Safety Case (OSC) consultation


Leading up to your 2-day intensive ground schooling, 15 hours of web-based learning must be completed providing you the basics prior to commencing your ground schooling.

The Ground School course is constructed to make students aware of all CAA regulations and guidance and basic airmanship you need to understand to operate your Drone in the safest possible manner.

Both the Ground School and Practical Flight assessment are in place to assess your capability to perform operations safely, not only in planning but also in execution.

Still-Live Media is an official training partner with RUAS who is a CAA approved NQE (No. 119)
