I received my Private Pilot License in 2013 and Remote Pilot License in 2017. I have successfully completed training in basic flight operations, advanced flight operations, communication tower flight operation, power line inspection, hazard awareness and risk management. I am current in OSHA 10 training and First Aid / CPR. I have worked on large and small construction sites and have coordinated with all levels of personnel on these sites. I have work and trained in various regions of the U.S. including Alabama, California, Florida, Oregon Texas, and Washington.
My experience includes: Telecommunications and Power Line Inspection training at Sehoy Plantation, Alabama provided by Talon Aerolytics. I have received additional training from DartDrone and Ausley Associates, Inc. In 2019 I worked for PrecisionHawk on the Pacific Gas and Electric transmission tower inspection project. In 2017 I deployed with Ausley Associates, Inc. to Miami Florida in a support role for Hurricane Irma. Our team supported Florida Power and Light with power line inspection through aerial observation, imaging and mapping. I worked with line crews providing on site flight operations providing the immediate imaging resources necessary to make critical decisions. I have conducted numerous mapping surveys in the Pacific Northwest for Chelan County PUD, Uplift Data Partners and private contracts. I have experience with aerial photography of residential and commercial properties and specifically enjoy rural land photography and videography.
As a lifelong outdoorsman I utilize my experience to achieve the best results for the client. In one recent project I mapped a section of river at the base of a power generating station to identify certain species of fish. The mapping flights occurred over nine weeks resulting in nine individual maps for comparative purposes. The data I acquired was provided to the field biologist for analysis and future enhancement of the local fishery.
Certain flight operations require FAA waivers or authorizations to complete. I have experience with this process and been successful in obtaining necessary clearances.
