about US


Humanitarian Aid: Whatever your organization's focus, drones can play a integral part in helping capture much needed data more efficiently.   When disaster strikes, you need data quick.  We can fly over the affected area and provide an instant overview to help assess the situation, identify potential dangerous elements and seek out needed solutions.

Search & Rescue: We can provide the immediate eye-in-the-sky and operate at lower altitudes if cloud layer or weather is an issue.  Our drones are able to get beyond the "roadblocks" to continue the search while not interfering with ongoing rescue operations.


We offer a complete range of drone photography and video options.  Drone aerial imaging is faster, safer and more cost effective than the alternatives.  Whether it's a home, estate, land or an event you need captured, there is nothing more powerful than the right aerial image.  Stunning aerial video can make your commercial, film or marketing video unforgettable.  We offer raw footage to do with as you wish or professionally edited images/video.
