Operating your sUAS under Controlled Airspace

We're often asked how Small Unmanned Aircraft (sUAS) Pilots approach one-time operations that fall under Controlled Airspace, and whether it's entirely necessary to file a waiver or certificate of operation that will generally require time and patience to acquire.

The bottom line is that no matter the magnitude of your project production, both manned and unmanned aircraft within the same airspace need to know the whereabouts of one another at all times. Without following the proper precautions the level of risk is greatly increased. Open communication is key to providing successful aerial production services because it maintains piece of mind and basic human safety.

1. First things first... Check the Airspace of the location you are looking to fly under.

There are great applications online that will do most of the work for you when it comes to checking the Airspace as well as which Authority has jurisdiction over a specific area. Something to keep in mind when planning an Aeria…

A word from our Chief Remote Pilot

"Throughout history, innovation has been at the forefront of our society, and today technology has quite literally changed the way we view the world. I find aerial perspectives to be fascinating not only because of their profound beauty, but for their geometric likeness and ethereal appeal. It is my hope to inspire."

Construction in the Air!

For us, 'doing what you love' is more than a pipe dream. 

The entirety of our work revolves around the same goal, to provide a captivating, cinematic view of the world from above. 

We have pushed the boundaries of ordinary in our approach to 'aerialography' and strive to remain actively involved in finding new areas to benefit. With a world of rapidly increasing technology, there is no one way to apply our services. 

Some of our most unique and highly appealing fields of work have been with construction, commercial real estate, contractors, and community developers. Simply put, the outcome is remarkable. What better way to envision such a widely spaced project, than to view it from the air?
