Yes! We have two FAA-certificated remote pilots under the new "Part 107" UAS/drone regulation.
We follow all aspects of the FAA's regulations regarding drones, as well as our own internally-developed pre-flight checklists and procedures. We also carry insurance and utilize a visual observer during every flight.
We accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and mobile payments such as ApplePay, Samsung Pay & Google Wallet.
For business, government and non-profit clients, we will accept checks under certain conditions.
Many factors determine this, including weather conditions, how we fly, and more. Generally, we can fly for about 20-25 minutes.
Prices will vary based on the services we are providing and the scope of your project.
No. We are not licensed surveyors. We can collect topographical data that can be used to create orthomosaics or 3D models, but we cannot read or interpret this data for you and we cannot create legal documents based on data we collect. You would be responsible for finding a licensed surveyor to do this.
This is a tricky question without a clear answer.
Generally, we will not fly near (usually within 5 miles of) airports. Currently, flying near airports requires special approval that must be requested up to 90 days in advance, according to the FAA. We expect this to change later this fall, hopefully only requiring that we request approval within a few days before flying near an airport. We are at the mercy of the FAA's schedule on this, as well as their workload in processing these requests.
If your project is close to an airport, contact us for more information.
Yes, most definitely! We can all breathe easier knowing if something unfortunate does happen, we're covered.
Not yet, but hopefully soon. We hope to have approval to do this soon (with some restrictions).
