Drones Services

Are your drone pilots certified/licensed?  

Our drone pilots are Part 107 FAA certified and registered, and we provide their individual credentials prior to the start of a project. Additionally, if the location you’re requesting is in a specific Class of Airspace that requires authorization, we will provide all necessary documentation (flight plan, authorization documents, etc) ahead of time.

 

Are your drone pilots and photographers insured?

We carry a $1 million dollar unaggregated aviation insurance policy.

 

What kind of drone services do you provide?

We offer aerial photography, videography, construction tracking, inspection, and asset mapping.  

 

What are your rates for your drone services? 

Our rates are based on the scope of work and turnaround time of each project. To request a quote email info@whiteclouddrones.com.

 

Can you fly at night legally? 

Yes, we do hold a Certificate of Waiver or Authorization. 14 CFR § 107.29 Daylight Operation allowing us to fly in the nighttime hours. Special provisions apply when operating a drone at night and will ensure you are aware of any special requirements needed to operate safely and legally if flown at night. 

 

Can you fly near airports? 

It depends. Some locations and areas are completely off-limits. We can fly near most airports if we obtain the necessary legal permission, which may often require days to receive authorization. If you are unsure of the accessibility of a particular location, email ….or give us a call and we will connect with Air Traffic Control and the FAA to verify authorization. 

 

Can I get just one photo?

Our aerial photography rates are by the hour but if you are looking for a particular shot, we can get multiple heights and angles of the same shot during the flight.

 

What is your turnaround time on drone services?

Turnaround time depends on the scope of work but for small to medium size aerial projects, we can typically deliver the final product within 3 business days.
