TETHERED DRONE FILMING
Skyshot, along with our aerospace engineering partner, Flare Dynamics, developed the LIFELINE Tethered Drone system that allows us to operate in these drone "No-Fly" zones. Powered only by a ground battery system with no onboard batteries in the drone allowed, there is virtually no chance for the drone to malfunction and "fly away" remotely. The drone flight height is limited by the tether length of 50 meters, well suited for low high-air traffic areas. It is certified by the CAAS for use in Singapore.

Filming in Restricted Airspace
Singapore has very strict drone "No-Fly" zones around Seletar and Changi Airport. Very often, this restriction extends to the 3 military airbases as well. This area of restriction covers around 50% of Singapore's airspace. However, CAAS can allow the use of tethered drones in these restricted areas. We have done many filming projects near Changi Airport, Seletar Airport, and Pulau Tekong, with our Lifeline Tethered Drone system.
Skyshot has an operator's permit from the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore. We ensure that all our flights are approved by CAAS & other relevant authorities
Certified UAV Pilots
Skyshot's UAV pilots are certified by CAAS and they have many years of experience in drone aviation.
Public Liability Insurance
Skyshot is covered for S$1 million public liability insurance for all our UAV activities. The insurance coverage also includes, timelapse, video filming in engineering, marine & construction sites
With the tethered drone, we have filmed TV documentaries, new condominium launches, and commercial projects in Pasir Ris, Loyang & Tampines. These areas are out of bounds for conventional drones.
Some of our customers are using the Lifeline Tethered Drone for building inspections, and other industrial-related works. Lifeline's long battery life provides the users with more operating time, compared to conventional drones.
Skyshot conducts monthly construction filming updates for a number of projects near Changi Airport. This includes the Changi Airport East development, road upgrading in Pasir Ris, and reclamation works in Pulau Tekong.
The tethered drone allowed us to film live events like the National Day Parade Rehearsal at the Yio Chu Kang Stadium. The 2.5 hours of battery life means less downtime and longer coverage.
The Lifeline Tethered Drone is used regularly by the Changi Airport Group for runway & aviation inspections. It has also been used for aircraft crash site testing and mapping.
Lifeline Tethered Drone is used overseas for defense purposes. It is currently also used in Australia for coastal search & rescue efforts and shark watch.
The CAG dorms were built within the Changi East Development, several hundred meters from a busy runway. The Lifeline Tethered Drone enables us to document this project from the air, something impossible with a conventional drone.
Pasir Ris Road Upgrade
This LTA road upgrading project in Pasir Ris area is within Changi Airport's drone no-fly zone. Lasting 3 years long, we have been documenting this project with our tethered drone, every month. This project requires many drone launches, covering all major roads in Pasir Ris and Loyang area.
Pulau Tekong Infilling
Skyshot is the appointed filming company for all the 3 land reclamation projects in Pulau Tekong. Spanning across all the northern, eastern, and southern parts of the island, these multi-year projects is documented from the air with our Lifeline Tethered Drone.
