North Wales, PA
I'm 23 and I am a light sport aircraft pilot and, of course, a professional UAS pilot and engineer. I work at Keystone Aerial Surveys based out of Philadelphia Northeast Airport (KPNE). I've been flying model aircraft and multirotors for recreation since 2011. Beginning in 2012 I entered into an independent research group named QuadForge at the colllege I attended. My team and I designed a waterproof quad to fly in the Swiss Alps. My commercial professional UAS career began in 2014 with local jobs for hobbiests and start-up UAS companies mainly doing engineering work. After I began my FAA pilot training in the summer of 2015 I began to pilot UAS's professionally working mostly in cinematography. In late 2015 and early 2016 I began to work more in the industrial side of the UAS industry (Ag jobs, inspection, topographical analysis, and photogrametry).
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I am interested in just about all sectors of the UAS industry. I like cinematography because I get to fly in manual in scenic locations. I enjoy the more industrial work because I get to work in heavy industry locations and use big expensive UAS toys. I'd like my recreation time with UAS's to be focused on FPV racing. I'll get into it one of these days.
