About Drone Services Ireland

Nationwide coverage through our network of experienced and qualified pilots.

Drone Services Ireland, established in 2016 to meet the needs of the growing drone industry in Ireland. The uses of drones are wide and varied. New ways to innovate are developed every day in this rapidly expanding sector. Drone Services Ireland are focused on these expanding sectors. Sectors such as Construction and Mapping, drones are used to perform manual tasks and provide a safer workplace. 

The advances in sensors and cameras, referred to as payload, is rapidly changing. New technology is released almost weekly. This ever-changing industry enhances the functionality of drones in modern business. It is our mission to help customers to develop their business. Expanding the business with drone technology at the core to improve productivity. Improved decision making and increased co-worker safety are some of the key benefits.

Drones can save lives by taking workers out of harm’s way. Where once they needed to climb scaffolding, now a drone can be the eye in the sky without the risk. There are hundreds of use cases. New and innovative ways developed every day.  Drones can do the dangerous tasks humans currently do at significant risk.

We provide services that make most of drone technology. In some instances, we can go where helicopters can’t. Due to the smaller footprint of drones, we can safely interact with manned aircraft and get the job done.

With the introduction of the new EASA regulations in 2021, Drone Services Ireland operates in the Open and Specific Categories and has attained a SORA for our Specific Category operations, allowing us to operate our larger M300 drones safely and in compliance with these regulations.

Safe flight and missions are our primary concern.

There are many positives to drone uses but also many risks that need consideration. Drone Services Ireland is an IAA approved Operator.

We carry 13 million in public liability insurance for drone operations and 13 million employers liability. The flight mission is just a part of the job. Site surveys, risk assessment and planning, also play a significant part.

Depending on location, Air Traffic Control (ATC) approval may be required. This is particularly true when operating in or around major cities.

We have completed SafePass training for work on construction sites. We also have manual handling and working at heights certificates and all are available upon request.
