Premier Drone Productions (PDP) was formed by Bob McChesney a 20 Year veteran of Naval Aviation with over thirty years’ experience in military and general aviation. Now based in the greater Central Florida and FL west coast areas our team is ready to travel to all areas of the globe to deliver quality aerial products to our clients. We at PDP believe in two things: “by the book” drone aviation and high quality cinematic production. Our clients know they are getting aviation and cinematic professionals for their project. The combination of safe aviation practices and expert camera techniques fit perfectly in the ever growing US commercial drone industry.

Our company serves you in three distinct areas. As an aerial flight company we molded our flight operations after lessons learned from military aviation squadrons. We structured each element of our Flight Department into Command Leadership, Flight Operations, Safety and Standardizations, Flight Training, Quality Assurance, Risk Assessment and Maintenance that follow standards, procedures and check lists. All groups are governed by PDP policy and standardizations. We have the latest drones in our fleet and when we fly we are prepared in every way. Each mission starts with robust mission planning including customer needs assessment with a comprehensive price proposal and a complete understanding of the statement of work. We do not like surprises so our process is detailed and complete down to the finer points allowing us for a successful, safe mission with a quality product delivery.

The second main component of PDP is the quality of the deliverables in both video or photographic content. We train everyday on aerial photographic and videography skill sets for shooting quality content for our clients. We incorporate our expertise in camera settings, proper lighting, cinematic aerial movements, story creation and shot angles for every mission engagement. We have experts who can film ground and aerial shots which we then craft into a compelling story for personal or commercial use. Finally, we use very powerful post production editing tools the same ones used in the big film and photo industries. Post production takes the cinematic shots and brings the content alive with beauty and personality (music, voice and special effects) delivering your message or creating a story to be admired by your audience. Our goal again is to deliver Mission Success with Aerial Excellence.

Bob did a fantastic job, all shots in the shotlist were accounted for, and he added others to round out the shoot. Very professional planning and execution. Will definitely use again and highly recommend.
