Drone Project Scoping

GETTING A PROJECT STARTED RIGHT MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE

We ask the right questions about what you want to achieve, how you will use the media/data, who will use it, who will see it, what digital platforms will be used, and more.

We do this to properly scope and price what’s needed. In nearly every case we add value by suggesting changes and providing multiple price point options.

Once we have nailed down the basics we plan and rework as needed prior to flight execution in order to ensure the deliverable is exactly what our clients need or better!

Before getting started, we follow a series of regular steps. Each project includes; an advanced operations RPAS pilot, a visual observer (if needed), a pre-mission compliance review, risk analysis and control measures, airspace review per the DHA, a site survey & flight plan, and more.

Drone Project Delivery

CONDUCTING A SAFE, EFFICIENT DRONE OPERATION IS CRUCIAL

Once we have completed the steps to scope and plan the drone project we shift into operations mode.

With our project plan in place, we more closely examine how to conduct the drone flights, including; drone and sensor selection, airspace and air traffic pattern, safe launch and recovery sites, site security, secondary landing sites, flight paths, pilot experience, pilot/visual observer positions, separation distances, communications with aerodromes as required, and more. 

In every case, drone services pricing and drone operations include; setup, flight execution, teardown, administration, flight logging, RPAS maintenance, drone liability insurance, data management, and project closeout tasks/administration. 

Our #1 goal in every operation is to “get the shot” with the least amount of flying possible in order to limit risk.
