Drone company behind BBC and Game of Thrones cinematography jumps to Lincolnshire

Eagle Eye Innovations

A team of professional unmanned aerial vehicle aviators has relocated to Lincolnshire in a bid to be more centralised.

Eagle Eye Innovations, which has worked with the BBC and Game of Thrones to create sky-view cinematography, has previously trained police teams how to operate UAVs.

Eagle Eye Innovations use skills that they developed in the military to help bring UAV skillsets to the public sector.

Sion Roberts, who worked in the RAF with drones, set up the company when he reached his pension point.

Roberts told Lincolnshire Live: “I noticed that the UAV world was starting to gather momentum. Drones were everywhere so I decided to leave the RAF and set up Eagle Eye Innovations at the back end of 2014.

“Since then we have been heavily involved in the industry and have set up our own academy, Remote Unmanned Systems Training Academy (RUSTA), which runs courses in Lincoln every month. We have been training lots of different people across the country and the world including Hong Kong.

“We recently moved offices to Lincoln on Weaver Road and have been here now for around two months and we’re just getting our feet under the table. I’m originally from North Wales but I did a stint at RAF Waddington and bought a house there and started to settle down.”
