Every flight shows me something new, however, my vision remains the same:
“Provide an inspiring aerial photography and videography shoot in a safe, respectful and professional manner, one client at a time.“
Without question, safety is always my number-one priority. I believe in being an ambassador of this emerging capability, and understand that its misuse could endanger public safety as well as the environment around us if mishandled.Â I take industry-leading steps to minimize risk and am pleased to say that I have a perfect safety record.
I maintain a 2.5 million dollar injury and property liability insurance policy specifically tailored for commercial UAV operations. Â Based on my extensive safety protocols, I am one of few aerial operators that is fully authorized by the insurer for indoor commercial operations.
Before every flight, I conduct a 28-point pre-flight inspection of the aerial equipment and inspect the entire flight area to check for any hazards such as humans, trees, wires or obstructions that are both movable and immovable.Â I require permission from the client for all flights, never flying directly over people or out of the direct line of sight. I also inform neighbors 2 days in advance by notices on their doors that also includes a brief safety plan to all bystanders in case of an equipment failure.Â For indoor flights, only the pilot and safety briefed crew members are allowed in the space being filmed.Â I do reserve the right to refuse a mission based on safety concerns.
