Clients Our Pilots

  • Mike and his team were incredibly professional and accommodating as to my specific requirements. I am a commercial real estate broker and use drones 30 +/- per year across the country for my listings. To say that I have very detailed requirements would probably be an understatement, neverthele...
  • I have joined Darren to jobs where he's been individually selected to come and finish the assignments other pilots have fallen short of. With the years of experience he has acquired as a remote and private pilot, you can rest assure he will get the job done, no matter the challenge. I can certain...

There was even bad weather during our work being complete, but did not at all slow the process down. The quote remained firm from start to end and edits were turned around each time as request...

Drones in Alaska Construction: Making Your Life Easier

Drones have moved from a novelty to business as usual in the lower 48, particularly in the construction industry--and they have even more to offer in the last frontier.

If you're in the construction industry in Juneau, Anchorage, Fairbanks, or the more rural areas, you know that in Alaska, construction projects have their own special hazards. Rain, snow, earthquakes, and just sheer distance from one job to another are part of the deal. Many of those can be alleviated or monitored through the use of drones.

Drones (small, unmanned, aircraft systems or vehicles) are paving the way for videography of construction sites without putting you or your team at risk on slick, iced-over or rain-wet surfaces, and at angles that would be impossible otherwise.

Here are just a few ways to use drones in a construction environment:

  • Drone Surveys: Surveying a new job site, or surveying an addition to a current one is quick and accurate with an experienced drone pilot on the controls.

  • Drone Construction Updates: Showing your client the job progress is easy with a birds-eye video showing exactly how far your team has gotten.

  • Drone Construction Monitoring: Monitoring the job site when you can't be everywhere at once is key, including whether safety procedures are actually being followed.

  • Drone Construction Inspections: Inspecting structures to make sure the work's been done to your satisfaction means passing the local inspector's walk-through will be a snap later. You can zoom in on welds and check for snow/rain damage when buildings that haven't been dried in yet are subject to the inevitable storms. Checking for quake damage that just isn't visible from the ground becomes business as usual with drone inspections.

If you've been thinking about hiring a commercial or construction drone pilot, check to make sure they're legal. The FAA has only granted a little over 3,000 FAA 333 exemptions at this writing, and in order to legally fly an unmanned aircraft system like a drone, it's necessary to have applied for and received a federal exemption.

Our pilots are legal, licensed, and cleared by the FAA, and they're experienced at helping you get your construction project off the ground.
