In order to be able to plan and carry out a drone show safely and professionally, we recommend 8-12 weeks in advance, depending on the general conditions. If the event parameters allow, shorter lead times are also possible. However, certain regulatory and aviation processes require minimum lead times, which vary from region to region. Due to the persistently high demand for drone shows, we recommend inquiring about appointments as early as possible.
The costs of our drone shows depend primarily on the general conditions, the number of drones used and the individual wishes of our customers. For more sensitive budgets, we also offer a selection of ready-made shows. These can be individualized at certain points by replacing one or more motifs (e.g. customer logo and message). Our stock shows are developed by the same award-winning creative team that designs our custom shows. In addition, we have various drone fleets for different requirements and areas of application. From the highly secure high-end drones for use at premium events and marketing campaigns to special compact drones that were specially developed for use at small and medium-sized events with more sensitive budgets and for art installations. However, the costs of any serious, safe and professionally planned show are at least in the five-digit range.
Wind, rain and cold can not only impair the show experience for the spectators, but also affect the technology. Depending on the drone fleet, fresh wind, drizzle and a bit of cold are no problem. The weather is a fixed planning parameter of our shows right from the start, and so we already include weather data in the evaluation during the feasibility study.
Our project management observes the weather developments on the day of the event days before construction and coordinates them with the weather services on an ongoing basis. If a safe drone show can no longer be guaranteed, the staging must be canceled or postponed.
Since weather conditions can also develop more violently than announced, the responsible pilot makes the final decision on the day of the event as to whether a drone show can be carried out safely. In case of doubt: Better safe than sorry!
Even if the drones do not release any fine dust or CO2 emissions during the show, indirect factors (e.g. charging infrastructure, logistics, etc.) must be taken into account.
Out of conviction, we do everything technically and humanly possible to reduce the carbon footprint of our shows to a minimum. We have been developing sustainable solutions with our partners for years. As pioneers in the sustainable energy supply of our shows, we use e.g. solar-powered pop-up power modules instead of diesel aggregates to supply our required infrastructure with electricity. The fact that the band Coldplay, as a pioneer of sustainable touring, is now also using this technology on their "Music of the Spheres" tour shows that we are on the right track. https://sustainability.coldplay.com/
