Looking for exceptional, on-time aerial images? We have good news for you.


We are licensed, certified, qualified and experienced.

UAV's have their application, but because so much of South Florida's populated areas are within 5 miles of an airport, we safely use the same platform as we have for the past 25 years - a real aircraft, with a pilot and a photographer.

We can photograph from any altitude with ATC approval, typically in the 1,000 - 4,000 foot range. Outside those limits, we'll gladly quote Drone acquisition.

We are licensed and insured.

Drone or Aircraft, the choice is yours, with one simple call or click.

Who should be concerned when working in our highly regulated airspace? Everyone.

* The FAA requires pilot and drone certification, plus equipment registration. All operators require a UAV waiver.

* The minimum lawful distance from any airport is 5 linear miles (road mapping distance doesn't count). Check your location, and confirm you're not hiring someone to break the law on your behalf. It's unsafe, and puts a lot of innocent people at risk.

* The highest altitude a Drone can legally fly is 400 ft. For added safety, we limit ours to 300 ft.

* Drones must be used at a safe distance from persons and congested areas.

* To comply with regulations, we have equipment checks and keep a log of all maintenance and flight details. A 'spotter' is also required, along with a list of other safety proceedures.



No Drones!

*Know the signs

*Understand the Limits

*Follow the Rules

*Everyone Stays Safe and Happy!


Need assurance you're hiring someone who's qualified?
