It is a question that you may have asked yourself before: "Why Should I hire a professional? My friend has a drone that can take photos of the property I am trying to sell" or "I can just buy a drone and take shots of the construction site myself!". Many other similar arguments can be made, but hiring a professional in the Canadian drone industry is always the best option. Here are some reasons why it is best to hire a pro like us to do the aerial work!
1. We are Legal
As a professional company in the industry, we have put in our time to ensure that we are approved by Transport Canada, are fully insured for liability damages, and are a registered business. When you are hiring someone to do any commercial work with a drone, they must have the minimal listed above. Hiring a pro means that you will be covered liability wise, and will be supporting the legitimate businesses who work hard to follow the rules and that help create a safer and more effective industry for all!
We are well practiced when it comes to both flying a drone, and professional photography and film production. We have the resources to help make your project(s) stand out from the rest of the crowd, and the experience to make the process seamless. Don't compromise the quality of your project! Go pro!
3. You may Learn Something
Even if you are a drone hobbyist yourself, hiring a pro means that you may learn from them! Ask them questions while they are working for you, you may learn something new about the industry, or even your drone!
4. Support Local Small Business!
Air Support is a small, locally owned and operated business in Barrie Ontario. By hiring us, you help support local creatives and help the local economy thrive! We also put in the hard work to educate our local community on the drone industry, as well as put in the long hours to be a legitimate, safe and fully legal drone business. Please don't support fly-by-nighters, support legitimate local businesses like us! If you don't feel confident that the people you hired are legitimate, ask to see their S.F.O.C!
Any other ideas why you should go with the pros on projects? Let us know below! As always, thanks for reading!
The usage for drones in the construction industry is absolutely growing. Technological advances and new ways of thinking are bringing more and more drones to sites across Canada!
Usage for a drone can range from documenting a site through photos and video, to surveying and 3D mapping, Insurance claims and medical as well as security. The potential is limitless!
Throughout the years, We have documented a lot of construction sites. Mostly for marketing and documenting purposes, but we are always interested in trying something new, especially our move into 3D mapping (see below).
