At Sky Perth, we pride ourselves on pioneering the Australian drone industry. We were the first company in Australia to receive approval from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) to operate First Person View (FPV) drones near people. We were also permitted to use drones Beyond the Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) at Class 1 level. We are shaping the future of aerial videography in Perth and the wider regions of Western Australia, utilising the full potential of FPV drone technology.

Why FPV Over Normal Drones?

While conventional Drones have their place, FPV drones offer unique benefits that give them a distinct edge. The immersive FPV experience provides a much more dynamic perspective, genuinely transforming the realm of drone cinema.

Unlike standard drones, the FPV drone provides the operator a first-person view as though they are piloting it. This allows for capturing fluid, cinematic shots with a level of precision and control that traditional drones can’t match. It opens up a whole new world of possibilities in aerial videography, enabling us to get closer to the action and film from previously unimaginable perspectives.

FPV Perth – Revamping Industries

We don’t just stop at drone cinema; Sky Perth has proven the versatility of FPV drones in various sectors. Using DJI technology, our drones have elevated the scope of applications in industries such as real estate, construction, environmental conservation, and tourism.

Our recent collaboration with Parramatta Eels is a prime example. By utilising FPV drone technology, we could offer a unique, bird’s-eye view of their training sessions, providing valuable insights to marketing staff and creating compelling content for fans.

In the world of electric vehicles, we’ve had the privilege of working with the Electric Racing League, showcasing their high-performance machines in a way that only FPV drones can – with unparalleled precision and spectacular visuals.

FPV Australia: Setting the Standard

Operating out of Western Australia, Sky Perth has set the benchmark for FPV operations nationwide. Our extensive expertise and adherence to CASA’s stringent safety regulations ensure that we always deliver a premium service.

With the advantages of FPV drones clear to see, Sky Perth is committed to leveraging this technology for the benefit of our clients and the industries we serve. FPV drone cinema is just the beginning – we can’t wait to show you what’s next!
