As owner and primary pilot, I've been involved in RC aircraft flying for over ten years. I began, unknowingly, in the deep end of the pool with collective pitch helicopters (boy was that a steep learning curve) and 3D stunt flying. Flying anything after that was easy, as I moved to fixed wing aircraft, very fast fixed wings, and eventually building and flying race drones. I'm college educated in photography and have been shooting/editing video for nearly 15 years.
In 2016 after moving to the Denver area, I decided to combine my love of flying, my education in photography, and my professional background in operations management and business analysis - thus began this venture. I founded Adventure UAV after recognizing that the drone services market is flooded with hack jobs trying to make a quick buck and had a serious dearth of providers that did quality work, behaved professionally, charged reasonable prices, and built lasting client relationships. I knew we could offer a superior quality product and a better all-around client experience than any provider in Colorado.
We make use of an array of different drones and camera equipment to suit client needs. I believe in utilizing the right tool for each job to keep operational costs down, maximize the quality of deliverables, and keep our services within reach of a wide range of markets and price points.
We also love getting out into the mountains! Making a video of your backcountry ski/board lines and want those heli style shots without paying a fortune for a helicopter? We'll hike out there with you. Have a remote cabin or yurt for rent and want some aerial photos for better perspective in your listing advertisements? We're there. Need professional looking aerial photography or video to promote your outdoor events, group climbs, backpacking trips, etc.? We'll go with you.
We are based in Lakewood Colorado, are FAA Part 107 certified, liability insured both in the air and on the ground to $3mil, FAA 107.29 authorized for night flying, hold FEMA 100/200/700/800 qualifications, are NC DOT commercial and government licensed for drone operations, and hold airspace authorizations for all Front Range airports including DoD towers like Buckley AFB.
