MEET THE TEAM
Kane has been flying drones for over 8 years now, pretty much since they began to appear in the UK. He specialises in outdoor adventure photography, enhanced by his graphic design and amateur photographic background.
Kane is widely travelled, where he has experienced many cultures on his adventures around the world, leading him to better understand the importance of “ capturing the moment”, using new and innovative technology.
To escape, he likes to hike, explore and wild camp, whether at the top of a mountain, or in the depths of a forest, Kane finds that getting closer to nature and the great outdoors helps him reset, re-energise and focus.
Chris recently left the Fire Service after completing over 34 year’s service with both Greater Manchester and Lancashire Fire and Rescue, including 10 year’s experience working with drones in the Emergency Service theatre of
operations. During this 10 years, Chris has worked with the EU, MOD, HMP, Home Office and a large number of Fire and Police services from all over the UK, becoming a national drone instructor in 2017 until 2020.
The training course he delivered to Emergency Services throughout the country was produced and written solely by Chris, and helped hundreds of Police and Fire pilots achieve a high degree of competency in the sector. Specifically with Manchester and Lancashire, he was responsible for establishing several 24/7 drone teams for the fire and police, as well as personally attending over 1000 separate incidents where drones were used.
Chris has brought his immense drone experience over to the private sector, hoping his ‘safety, safety, safety’ mantra will strike a chord with folk looking for the ‘Reliable, Safe and Secure’ drone solution.
On a personal basis, Chris is married with 2 grown up children and resides in leafy Chorley. Recreational activities include all sport but mostly triathlon, a sport in which he has completed over 300 races and 15 separate Ironman events in a career spanning over 25 years.
