UAViate, a drone operations and consultancy firm in the U.K., has pioneered what it says is the first-ever commercial drone operation in The Gambia in Western Africa.
The team spent five days capturing aerial video and stills of a wellness resort, Flourish, on the coast at Kotu Beach. The footage will be used to market the luxury resort to tourists.
According to UAViate, the operations had the full cooperation of the Gambian Civil Aviation Authority, the Ministry of Defence and the Office of the President.
The company recently provided its drone consultancy services for the production of an upcoming Hollywood film, Criminal.
