We are entitled to make requests for authorization to the DGAC in France. We have annual authorizations to fly in many departments of French regions in order to be able to take action as quickly as possible.

For some flight situations in urban or dangerous environment, we can request the presence of the police or qualified operators.

Flights take place during the day, on days without rain, after having defined a security perimeter and established a markup of the area.
