About Aerial FM


At Aerial FM, you get a drone pilot with a wealth of facilities management and building inspection experience and the latest in commercial drone and camera technology.  Our pilots have the relevant commercial flying experience, qualifications, commercial insurance and CAA aerial permissions. In addition, you get the support of an experienced building maintenance team that can oversee cleaning, repairs and maintenance of your roof and cladding.


A need to inspect smoke ventilation systems on a fragile roof containing asbestos cement was the start of what was to become Aerial FM. The cost to regularly inspect the vents was too expensive and extremely high risk for contractors to access. Aerial FM sought Drone technology to inspect and survey buildings thus delivering a safer, cost effective and quicker solution to diagnosing problems and inspecting safely at height. Aerial FM pilots are BNUC-S qualified, CAA Approved with Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO) and ContractorPlus accredited for health and safety. Our survey reports includes 4k quality video, photographs and high sensitivity thermal data for building energy assessments. Our services have been designed by facilities professionals for the built environment in diagnosing safety risks, leaks, damage and defects.


Our aerial survey solutions support facilities managers, surveyors, architects, structural engineers, contractors and property owners. Our aircraft are small, agile and can hover close to your building to gather the data you need to make informed decisions. Our UAV can be airborne quickly to transmit quality images to ground displays for you to view or control. Aerial FM replaces the human element with drone technology to make high level inspections safer and deliver a quicker and more affordable solution.   On receipt of your inspection report, Aerial FM are able to offer a one stop solution to cleaning, repairing or maintaining your roof or cladding with quality workmanship that is supported by guarantees.
