"I purchased my franchise in November 2019 but needed to finish up with my old job, Gemma and the guys in the office were great and happy to help. I started trading in late January and through February I got a few enquiries most of which turned into jobs …. then Covid hit! To be totally honest, I was really impressed how quickly the enquiries came through. The Skycam website is brilliant, well laid out, good user experience and most importantly an organic search result on google meaning when someone searches for drone pilots in your area you will come up first which is invaluable. The licence really helps you to understand the rules of the air and keeps you out of trouble and with a little creativity you can work almost anywhere! This is a great example of job where the more you put in the more you get out of it. I've really enjoyed it so far"
As always, please keep sending any and all jobs my way. More than happy to travelp.s. the Leicester doctors job should be going ahead, just trying to get permission from a rooftop car park to shoot there
"I have been part of The SkyCam franchise for nearly a year now (since 2019) and it has been fantastic. Picking up work through the website effortlessly, being part of the team is hands down the best way to achieve large drone contracts! Not only the work provided but the help and friendliness behind the scenes is second to none! Any queries I have are answered with great knowledge and speed. I would 100% recommend The SkyCam to anyone!"
"If you're thinking of buying a SkyCam franchise then go for it, with their professionalism and knowledge there's guidance and advice from the beginning.
I had 3 months ongoing work with a construction company who specialise in flood defences, after a few weeks of completing my course. I can honestly say buying a franchise from Skycam has been one of the best decisions I've ever made"
"I joined The SkyCam at the beginning of the year (2019) where I passed my PfCO and began business pretty quickly. Since then I have built an on-going partnership with a local estate agents, as well as filming at weddings. It is always challenging running a business whilst having a little one to look after, but the team are always at the end of the line to answer any questions I may have and support me in all ways."
"Not long had my franchise, being run part time initially, and after simple word of mouth during my taxi driving, I've already had the opportunity of a 300-property project along with further job opportunities. It's an excellent start, and support has been great. Looking forward to an exciting next 12 months"
"The business is going well with my best ever week last week. I have two estate agents on board now supplying some regular work and have advertised in a local paper that has had some success, most of my jobs at the moment are coming through your marketing"
"SkyCam offered support through the set-up period and have already provided a couple of referrals which have resulted in providing Aerial Photography services"
"Since joining The SkyCam in June 2017 I have received ongoing support, advice and help at each stage of the new business start-up. I have my own dedicated account manager who is always on hand to answer my questions I might have, and I am pleased that I chose this franchise.
I am looking forward to a long standing, successful partnership with The SkyCam and would happily recommend it to others"
"I qualified as a Drone Pilot back in April. The SkyCam guys provided great support setting up the SkyCam business in my area. Always on hand with helpful advice and tips on how to promote my business, and build upon the SkyCam brand"
Within the first few weeks of being set up with the franchise this year…
"I am beginning to get business leads through from various sources that you have set up which is fantastic"
"I recently took out a SkyCam franchise and have been very impressed with the level of support provided. I have now finished my PFCO course, I have my drone and website etc, which all looks very good. I'm not even 2 months in and have already received a number of enquiries through my website for work. As I'm awaiting my licence, I have passed the work on to another neighbouring franchisee for now. I have also met and spent time with another local franchisee who has been kind enough to take me out on a 'Jet Ski' job for BT Sports. I Would highly recommend to anyone looking to get into an industry that looks to have a very promising future"
"I received my long-awaited PfCO recently and I have plans to start promoting myself and looking for work, but without having done much of that at all yet, I've already been offered 4 jobs. SkyCam offered great support throughout the set-up process – and just the right level of encouragement to keep going. As well as the initial equipment and PFCO training, they have been a sounding board when I have needed advice, and they've provided information about additional training courses and they're helping me edit the first video I've produced. All their backing has been thoroughly supportive and professional"
"SkyCam have provided timely delivery of equipment, training and responses to my questions along the way. The SkyCam is fun and enjoyable way of earning an additional income alongside other employment. Like any business though, jobs won't just land on your lap. Put together a business plan, a marketing strategy and make lots of connections through networking in your local area to make it a success. I did a big job yesterday photographing Chessington World of Adventures."

If you’re new to running a business, then buying a franchise with these is a no brainer. The support and knowledge you have access to is second to none. They will ensure that you understand the best way of operating and being successful, but will give you the autonomy to flourish.
"After starting out as one of the first franchisees from an opportunity given to me by friends within SkyCam, there has been no looking back.
Taking time out recently to deal with family matters, I decided to step back into my franchise full time in 2020 where I am delighted to have now picked up in excess of £1000 per week regular work, out 5-7 days per week with my new DJI Matrice drone."
