Steve MacNeil

Managing Director

In 2016 Steve started Air Drones South West in order to join the growing revolution in the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for Commercial Use. As a qualified helicopter pilot with an Airline Transport Pilot License (Helicopters), he is fully qualified to operate UAVs for Commercial Operations. With more than 30 years of flying experience, he takes a professional approach to each flight with the UAV, treating it with the same consideration as a real aircraft. This ensures that all flying undertaken is conducted safely, efficiently, and within the rules of the UK Air Navigation Order and CAP722 (Unmanned Aircraft System Operations in UK Airspace).

We Love our Clients, And They Love Us

“Hello Steve,

We wanted to say how much we appreciated the photos you took of the house. They will really help the selling process as they give the house an entirely fresh perspective.

Not knowing what to expect, we were very pleased with your friendly professional approach which made the whole process quick and enjoyable.

Thanks again,

Shirley and Geoff.”
