Drone Arezzo flies for James Cameron.
Arezzo, 24 December 2016 – The Arezzo Drone piloted by David Mariottini performed its latest feat last Wednesday, when for the first time in Italy a drone flew over an international airport to take aerial shots, coordinated by the control tower without interrupting the flight activities of standard aircraft by taking advantage of time slots to ensure due separation of airspaces. A brilliant example of integration between drones and aircraft. This happened to document the construction of the new international boarding area “E” at the Leonardo Da Vinci airport in Rome Fiumicino. An innovative structure with a modern and spectacular design that was inaugurated on December 21st. It took three years of filming to document the work with aerial shots by Drone Arezzo Srl with the pilot David Mariottini and the collaboration of Antonio Orlando. The drone used at Rome Airport is a DJI S900 GH4 hexacopter equipped with the EVO System termination system and certified for specialized critical “operations”.
Drone Arezzo is not new to difficult undertakings from a regulatory and authorization point of view. «Drone Arezzo Srl managed by me – says David Mariottini – has obtained the highest certifications available today on the drone market following a huge commitment of time and money. We have opened the new headquarters in via Lumiere 19, also setting up the professional sales, repair and assistance department». In less than 4 years, Drone Arezzo Srl has achieved significant successes on the national and international scene, becoming a success in the world. Among the technical services, Drone Arezzo carries out surveys with thermal imaging cameras for precision agriculture and also offers its services to public bodies such as the province and the Reclamation Consortium for environmental monitoring. Not only that, since the summer of this year Drone Arezzo has developed its drones offering the possibility of loading heavy cameras thus entering the cinema market. «We were the only company in Italy to have obtained authorization to fly in the WRC Rally World Championship – says David Mariottini – and we participated in the documentary by James Cameron producer of Titanic, Terminator and Avatar in search of Atlantis for National Geographic .
But also on the Rai Kilimanjaro broadcast. We make videos for the most important manufacturers of luxury yachts and ships such as Benetti, Ferretti, Alfamarine, filming for the BMW centenary commercial and we are suppliers of aerial shots for Mercedes-Benz». But the Arezzo Drone has also launched itself into the cinema with the film I Stop When I Want 2 and I Stop When I Want 3 distributed by Fandango, in cinemas since January 2017. And then filmed for Cnn, for TV broadcasts such as Voyager, Masterchef, Sereno Variabile, for TV series and Sky documentaries. The main team of drivers is made up of David Mariottini and Michele Caneschi from Arezzo and Antonio Orlando and Matteo Corazzini. «Yesterday we filmed in Piazza Grande to pay homage to the Municipality of a 30-second promotional video dedicated to the Christmas markets».
