Our FAA Certified Remote Pilots and state of the art aircraft can assist you with affordable aerial photographs and video, mapping, land surveys, wildlife management, emergency operations and planning, search & rescue, training, and more.
Our UAS control station allows us to monitor manned flight traffic in local airspace (30+ KM radius) in real time so there is never a conflict.
Flight team members must complete initial and ongoing training and testing in order to participate in UAS operations. Flight training is conducted at least monthly, including emergency procedure training. Pilots are FAA Part 107 certified.
Using our combat and civilian aviation experience and FAA guidelines, we've developed SOPs and checklists that guide operations and training.
We use a visual observer ("Spotter") whenever possible, and especially during public safety flights.
To ensure we have a pool of properly trained and competent observers, we offer basic observer/spotter training at no charge to agencies that contract services with us. Individuals that are not associated with a participating agency can still attend the course at the standard tuition rate. The basic course is 3 hours in length and covers necessary topics required to participate as an observer/spotter on our flight team. EMS Continuing Education credit is provided for certified EMS providers.
Graduates receive a Critical Skills Concepts Air-Ops Patch and Flight Team shirt. They are then added to flight team roster.
Advanced flight team courses will also be available to those interested.
We have committed to donating annual emergency response contracts to any emergency services agency in Tioga, Potter, Bradford, or Lycoming Counties.
Our aerial thermal imagery provides life-saving search and rescue support. Per-incident services are available, as well as annual contracts.
