An idea in 2012

Leading Aerial Operators Working Together, Collaborating And Sharing Ideas.

We started out back in 2012 at BVE with an idea to form a group where we could collaborate and act together, sharing ideas and promoting ourselves and the industry as a whole. That idea became The Remote Aerial Operators Group aka ‘Remote Aerial Ops’.

Since then the founding members including Horizon AP, Flying Fern Films and Flyonix have shared ideas, experiences and knowledge, and worked together on numerous projects, from exhibiting together at BVE to building wirecam systems for Beowulf.


Now we’re expanding on the core idea of the group to launch a new company that provides drone training and services based on the skills, experience and expertise of its world-class drone operators and new 8000 acre base.
