Oliver Jackson - New Main Partner and Key Pilot

Less than one year ago Oliver Jackson joined Dubaiaerilamedia as a key partner and head pilot.
Oliver was the first ARPAS certified pilot in Dubai from the SANAD Academy.
He is  one of the very few drone pilots to pass all of the increasingly necessary exams.
Due to the continuing developement of regional Drone Law requirements, the majority of Drone pilots in Dubai are now finding that they are not legal to fly outside of Dubai, DCAA airspace..and are not legal or accepted to fly in Abu Dhabi and other emirates controlled by the GCAA.

Oliver is now one of the very few Pilots now legaly allowed to cross over these airpace boundaries, and fly legally in any of the various emirates.

District 1 - Aquadams Project


Dubaiaerilamedia is currently working with the extremely innovational USA company called AquaDam to help record their milestone progress in the District 1 project.

 District 1 is part of the Meydan Sobha project backed and initiated by Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum to build an incredible real estate lagoon community.

AquaDams were first developed in the United States around 1985 by David Doolaege who holds a number of worldwide patents for water filled cofferdams. Over time AquaDam and its associated techniques have evolved into a highly effective temporary dam system. AquaDam Inc. have a network of distributors across the USA, Canada and AustraliaWhen fully inflated with water an AquaDam adopts the properties of a semi rigid body with the ability to contour rough and uneven surfaces to form a temporary dam.



b_240_201_0_00_images_1465816042-51dea3.pngThe three principal applications for AquaDam are temporary dams for construction, flood control and water storage.AquaDam comes in a range of sizes for use in water depths from 15cm to 3.3m in standard and bespoke lengths up to a maximum of 100m.b_319_177_0_00_images_banner-1-lg_0.png

Joining collars allow AquaDams to be connected. The longest run of AquaDam to date is in Brandon, Manitoba where two 8km flood barriers run in parallel were installed to keep a road open vital to the commercial life of the city.

Set in the near future, DRONE follows one morning in the life of a military Drone Operator, played by EWEN BREMNER (Trainspotting and Black Hawk Down). Drone warfare has now become privatised and he works a 9 to 5 shift for a Drone company called JANA. 

droneOne morning he is called in to do an 'early shift' and carry out a Drone mission on his own for the first time. Alone in the office, whilst he waits for his mission to go live he surfs the internet and plays solitaire like any other bored office worker. But his isolation makes him think for the first time about what he must do and the lethal hellfire missile he has to unleash at the touch of his joy stick on a suspect he's never seen before, thousands of miles away from him - across the other side of the world.
