How safe are the drones?
Extremely safe! We use the latest in drone technology to ensure accuracy and safety. In fact, some of our drones are equipped with engineering that allows the drones to auto-rotate to the earth, in the unlikely event that one or more motors fail.
Are we insured?
Yes, our company, equipment, and pilots are fully ensured.
What qualifications do our pilots have?
Our primary pilots are 107 certified by the FAA, have extensive experience with drones, AND are licensed and fly manned aircraft.
How does your data compare to that of manned aircraft?
Quick answer - the same, if not better.
Detailed answer - we offer an alternative to data acquired by manned aircraft. Our drones are equipped with high-resolution cameras that collect many images, which are then stitched together to form one massive photograph. From that image, we can extract numerous files - planimetric, topos, contour maps, DTM, DEM, ... The difference is that UAVs fly closer to the earth, giving us better images and thus better outputs.
Our customers are very pleased with the deliverables ... and thrilled with the cost savings. Our fees are a fraction of those charged by manned aircraft vendors.
