What are Drones?

Also known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) / Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), drones are lightweight aircraft that fly like a helicopter with vertical flight, with four to eight electric motors. This flying platform is for a new type of creative aerial media that is cutting edge and catching on fast.

Perspective is everything. Aerial perspectives reveals things that were unseen. The angles we can achieve and places we can fly these captivate and amaze! Video production will never be the same. Real Estate developers show views from floors yet to be completed. Feature Films Drones can be used for movies without a helicopter rental.

The FAA is requiring commercial drone pilots to have an actual Airman Certificate for airplanes. Productions and Corporations need to consider very carefully who they hire for drone based media. Beware of the inexperienced. Additionally if you are a Real Estate Agent, Filmmaker, Contractor, or any other type of unlicensed pilot, it is actually illegal to fly a drone for commercial purposes without FAA Certification; even if it is for your own personal business use. 

 

A Premium Provider

Need to find a drone pilot? I'm just a text away from Silicon Valley and the greater San Francisco Bay Area. When hiring a drone pilot be very weary of the many new (wannabe) drone pilots. Recently cheap toy drones have flooded the marketplace; and some have cameras. Equipment does not equal experience and part time effort does not always equal the of your vision for your project. The truth is many are not experienced, licensed or insured. Who do you want to trust your project with? Just ask prospective drone providers ….are you FAA Part 107 certified? Do you have an aircraft band radio for monitoring airspace? How long have you been flying? Do you have an insurance? Does your aircraft have automation and failsafe capabilities? 5-axis Obstacle avoidance? 4k UHD resolution?

 

Safety is Paramount

Few aerial companies posses knowledge and in depth years of experience needed to fly safely and effectively the first time. Safety comes first and equipment is triple checked. We are fully insured up to $2.5M so you can rest assured you’re covered, because we are.

 

Benefits

Our drones are capable of various aerial tasks in a wide array of aerial applications. The cost savings versus that of a traditional remote helicopter is dramatic. This opens a whole new door into aerial media for productions that otherwise would not have the budget. The security purposes are clear, police, border patrol, surveillance, search and rescue, aerial inspections of cranes, refinery flare tips, bridges, wind turbines or other hard to get to places.

Need future elevation photography for buildings yet to be built? Aerial video is capable of showing the future in full 360 Panoramic interactive views! The sky is the limit! With precise GPS control, and gyro stabilized camera mounts The camera can now fly up close and personal revealing that “impossible” point of view and more!

Our specialized flying camera platforms are capable of high quality digital still photography and full HD video. Our drone can replace a camera jib on a movie or TV set, get that impossible shot for a commercial. We can provide HD Aerial Footage for Hollywood Feature Films, Television, Independent Films, Commercials, Documentaries, Real Estate Aerial Photography, Aerial Inspection, Development, Construction & more!

Our close range flying camera system can also fly through narrow areas such as city streets (when permitted) or natural obstructions at low or high altitudes. We can also fly closer to subjects and perform shots too dangerous for large aircraft. Our system is also excellent for chase shots. Its a great alternative to SpiderCam or a Jib and takes less time to set up. We can even fly indoors.

Simply put we can fly where no one else can… and when no one else can…

 

Hire Remote Pilots With A Real FAA Commercial Pilots License

Flights are conducted by an FAA Certified UAS Operator. This is the latest certification issued by the FAA and surpasses the 133 exemption; which was merely a stop-gap. This offers a safety, liability and compliance factor that other companies can not offer with an experienced pilot at the controls.
