Canopy Drones is a family-run business founded by a former commercial helicopter pilot. We are based in East Yorkshire and operate across the UK.

We have a Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) approved Operational Authorisation to operate across the UK and Europe to the highest attainable standards.

Our drone fleet includes the M300 and Elios 3 drones, both of which can operate a variety of payloads (attachments/sensors) to complete complex projects with centimetre accuracy.

The Elios 3 operates within a small cage and is used in confined spaces, such as industrial chimneys, pipes, tanks, sewers and more.

We use LiDAR, thermal, Real-Time Kinematics (RTK) and varying sensors to collect data before processing across various software, depending on the required outcome.

Drone scans are the future for situated architecture; immediate, faithful, coordinated, inexpensive. They unlock real-world, real-time appraisal of designs from concept to detail. They will rapidly become the indispensable gold standard for the best architectural design, they open the door to coordinated digital twin models, BIM 3.0 and onsite AR. We specify a survey at the outset of every sited project. Canopy Drones are professional, helpful and reliable; they supply a wealth of data and expertise as part of their package, I thoroughly recommend their services.
