Weather Related Constraints


The successful outcome of any outdoor photography depends upon suitable weather conditions. A decision to photograph on a particular day is normally delayed to the last practical moment to maximise the chance of suitable weather.


Should the weather on the day not be as forecast and the assignment needs to be postponed, or there is some other reasonably unpredictable reason why the work could not be completed, then either there will be no additional charge to the Buyer for a return visit to complete the work or the Buyer may request a full refund of monies paid to SkyeServe in respect of any money already paid relating to the Service. No refund will be made for any chargeable preparation work already carried out or non-refundable deposits.


Whilst Equipment has built in self-stabilising measures, it is a flying platform and is subject to movement by the wind and will tilt whilst being held against the wind. This will impact on the image quality, steadiness and the angle of the images(s). Whilst SkyeServe will endeavour to obtain the best quality imagery for the conditions, the Buyer understands and accepts the quality images and video are not guaranteed to be steady and of broadcast standards.


Quality of images in relation to the exposure and sharpness taken after sunset cannot be guaranteed. Images required to be taken into the sun will undoubtedly suffer, to some degree, from lens flare and other detrimental effects.

SkyeServe shall comply with these rules and where revised, the limitations as contained within the Permission for Commercial Operation (PfCO) issued to SkyeServe by the UK Civil Aviation Authority.


Regulations specific to Small Unmanned Aircraft within UK Airspace apply to all flights undertaken. On behalf of SkyServe and in the best interests of flight safety, the Operative of the Small Unmanned Aircraft is the sole judge as to what rules and regulations are applicable.


SkyeServe will not operate under any of the following circumstances and reserves the right to cancel the Agreement at any point for the following reasons: (a) where the flight required by the Buyer in order to carry out the Service breaches the Air Navigation Order or where revised, the Permission for Commercial Operation issued to SkyeServe; (b) where there is poor weather conditions, including but not limited to high winds and precipitation of any kind; (c) where there are obstructions, obstacles or underlying hazards that the Operative of the Equipment feels is unsafe or whereby safety could be compromised.  The Operative assigned to completing the Service will determine this and the Buyer shall respect and accept this view.


Full landowner permission is required for the Location where the Operatives will be stationed on the ground in order to carry out our Services as required by the Buyer. This is not specifically the land where the Equipment may be operated over. Should this not be given to SkyeServe, the Agreement is void.

The Buyer is responsible for arranging all the permissions required by SkyeServe at their own cost.


SkyeServe may agree in writing to obtain permission on the Buyers behalf, this will be at an additional fee payable by the Buyer. The Buyer accepts that this fee is non-refundable; whether the required permissions are or are not successfully obtained.


Additional fees may be payable if a flight involves operating at night, within restricted airspace, danger areas or close to sensitive sites.

No flight operation will be carried out in the event that it is not possible to obtain all the required permissions, the Agreement is void.



Equipment used on the day when providing our Services cannot be guaranteed. SkyeServe reserve the right to use an alternative piece of equipment deemed to be suitable for carrying out the Services.


The Buyer is wholly liable to SkyeServe for any replacement equipment (on a new for old basis) costs arising from any damage, caused by the Buyer, their staff or anyone else associated with them, losses or theft and/or similar events affecting the equipment, during the Agreement. This liability remains irrespective of the existence, or payment out from, any insurance policies. Any monies owed to SkyeServe under this clause will be invoiced to the Buyer and will be payable in accordance with our payment terms. 


References relating to the replacing of Equipment on a “new for old basis” means the full original costs of purchasing the equipment, and any further amount so as to cover any increase in the costs of purchasing the latest equivalent versions of the equipment. When determining the current costs of purchasing the latest equivalent versions of the equipment, if the equipment is no longer available, it is no longer part of the current product range of the manufacturer, the costs of replacement shall be determined by reference to the costs of the equipment’ then nearest commercial alternative, as selected by SkyeServe. 



SkyeServe reserve the right to subcontract all or any part of the Service and to assign or otherwise deal with any way whatsoever in the interest of SkyeServe under the Agreement.



Cancellation by SkyeServe


In the event of cancellation or early termination of our Services for any reason, we will endeavour to reassign bookings to a future date whereby the weather is suitable and the Service can be carried out safely. This will be subject to the availability of Equipment and Operatives.


Where a future date offered by us is not acceptable to the Buyer, any deposit paid by the Buyer will be refunded. However, any costs incurred by us in preparation for us to carry out the Services prior to the day will be met by the Buyer.


When conducting an aerial Service, the head Operative, the remote pilot in charge of the flight, reserves the right on behalf of SkyeServe to cancel a flight at any stage, either prior to the flight or whilst the flight is in progress whereby they feel continuing would compromise safety or whereby they feel that what the Buyer is requesting would contravene Flight Rules.


Should SkyeServe not be able to fly to carry out the Service due to reasons that only become evident once on site or for reasons that SkyeServe was not advised of beforehand, the full value of the Quote will remain due for payment by you.


SkyeServe can withdraw or cancel the Agreement or amend an estimate or Quote if the Services have not started.


No responsibility will be accepted by SkyeServe whether this be consequential or otherwise for cancellation by SkyeServe for any reason.

Cancellation by the Buyer


The Buyer must give a minimum of 48 hours’ notice for cancellation in writing and cancellation is not valid until you receive confirmation from SkyeServe in writing.


Cancelling within 48 hours of the date agreed will result in a cancellation fee been applied which will be payable by you. It will be determined on the following basis; the greater of fifty percent of the Agreement value or any deposit already paid.  Any deposits paid will not be refunded. Any deposit will be offset against the total cancellation fee payable by you, with the remainder payable by yourselves.


Notwithstanding the above schedule, if any costs have been incurred by SkyeServe following written instruction from you (for example, but not limited to an agreed site survey cost, additional operators, specialist equipment) these costs will remain due for payment in full
