Operation Planning Day

We can estimate/quote on how many planning days are needed while gathering requirements.  Most operations only require a single planning day.

Planning Days usually require an on-site survey.  We produce a risk analysis and site operation limits report.

£500

Other common expenses

Crew long distance travel, per crew member per day £475

Weather insurance %20 (operations may be moved without cost depending on situation and our other commitments)

Small Print

Tiered cancellation costs

There is no cancellation charge when more than 2 weeks notice before operations unless there has been bespoke equipment hired or preparation done.

1 week notice is 50% of total cost

2 days notice or less is 100% charged

It may be possible to move operations without further costs depending on site location, our other commitments but please contact us as soon as you know about risk to dates.

Expenses and Planning

Unless specified, all operations would need at least one Operation Planning Day.  Rates don’t include VAT or mileage.

If the operation requires overnight stays due to distance from base, overseas or early start, expenses will also be added.

Complex operations may require Spotters or extra crew, this will be either estimated when we gather requirements or during the Operation Planning Days.

We may also add a risk weight to the price, this is usually dependent on insurance requirements but examples are:

  • Over water +20%
  • Close quarters, high speed chase +35%
  • Night operations +30% (Minimum 3 crew)
  • Beyond Line of Site +50% (Extra crew required)

Lead times depend on commitments of crew and equipment.
