About Rapid Aerial Imaging

Rapid Aerial Imaging is led by Dennis M. Fisher and Rada Carfora. The company is based in Dayton, Ohio. Dennis holds a commercial pilot license with over 3000 hours flown. He is a certified flight instructor, a very accomplished glider pilot and a professional high-performance motorcycle top-fuel drag racing champion. Rada Carfora retains over 15 years experience as a mechanical engineer in the automotive industry, spending most of her time in wheel-end design and development, with a patent or two to her name. Rada is now a licensed real estate agent, as well as an entrepreneur that has a passion of taking technology to new heights. The company has a 333 exemption through January 2017 as well as part 107 compliant pilots.

Our philosophy is to approach projects by assigning highly-trained and safety-minded 2 - 3 person FAA-licensed UAS operational teams to start aerial capture. If the flight is within a designated NFZ (No-Fly Zone) or within 2, 3, and 5 miles of an airport, our team will work with the local airport manager or FAA Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) in order to obtain authorization to fly.

Our team has been flying DJI drones since July, 2014 and are experts on the following platforms: Phantom 2 Vision+, Phantom 3 Standard, Phantom 3 Professional, Phantom 4 Professional, Inspire 1 Professional, Cinestar 8 and the eBee Fixed Wing. Our team is very competent, confident and comfortable with its aerial capabilities in GPS / Non-GPS flying modes, indoor flying, and all operations over water and under heavy tree cover or obstructions. Rapid Aerial Imaging also has a night waiver (Certificate Of Authorization-COA) to fly in uncontrolled (Class G) airspace. We are one of the only companies to have this COA.

Our talented creative team possesses over 25-years in photography, video and editing expertise, and are experts at website integration. We strive toward editing all raw photography and video content within 24-48 hours, providing a draft product for client review prior to assembling a final version. We can also include professionally narrated voice overs upon request at an additional cost.

Rapid Aerial Imaging specializes in small to medium businesses, commercial and private real estate, special projects, events, and water-sports activities. We will be expanding into thermal imagery in the next several months.

Our team has completed projects in Dayton and Cincinnati, Ohio; Marco Island, Florida; and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for clients. One of our premier accomplishments was being invited to shoot aerial footage for the Western & Southern Open, held annually in Mason, Ohio where the ATP and WTA Tour professionals gather to play tennis as one of the final North American stops prior to the U.S. Open.

Rapid Aerial Imaging (Exemptions #11643A, and #14001) are proud FAA-authorized 333 exemption holders.
