Aerial Drone Services
Add an aerial perspective to your visual presentations with Aerial Video and Aerial Photos by using our Aerial Drone Services.
We are Part 107 Certified and fully insured for commercial operation of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS).
We use the highly regarded DJI Mavic 2 Pro quadcopter with its 1” Hasselblad camera that captures 4K footage with 10 bit color and 20 megapixel raw still images.
The detail and color from this camera is simply stunning with image quality that rivals DSLR and mirrorless cameras.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
Why do I need aerial footage and photos?
An aerial view is a unique perspective that can add tremendous value to a visual presentation. Aerial views are also valuable tools for inspection of property such as real estate, buildings and towers.
What kind of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) services do you offer?
We capture video footage and/or still photography at heights up to 400 feet above ground level (AGL) in FAA controlled airspace.
Can you fly near airports?
Being Part 107 certified allows us to get instant airspace approval for most locations near LAANC capable airports (Houghton County Airport CMX is LAANC capable).
What does Part 107 certification mean?
In order for a drone to be used for commercial purposes the FAA requires the pilot of an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) operate under Part 107 which is a set of rules and regulations that govern the safe operation of a UAS in FAA controlled airspace. To operate under Part 107 a pilot must study for and pass an FAA knowledge exam.
I know a guy down the street who has a drone. Why don’t I just use him to get aerial footage for my business? He will do it for free.
Free is nice, but the FAA clearly states that UAS operations for commercial purposes (promotional use) must be conducted by a Part 107 certified UAS pilot. Failure to comply could incur a penalty of up to $32,666 per incident.
Hire a Part 107 certified pilot. They know the rules and your airspace, know how to request access to restricted airspace and know how to fly safely.
