A little introduction about myself.
I started flying flying back when a youngster - mostly control line. I grew up with aviation as my father was a pilot in the USAF. Took pilot trainging until I could not afford anymore after leaving the nest. After graduation I was in the Army aviation program as a UH1 crew chief. After leaving Army , several jobs and back to school for a degree in Art - Photography Major from LSU. I moved to Dallas in 89 and was a commercial photographer until 1996, when I re-invented myself - and moved to IT. Presently I am a Sr. Systems Engineer for a medical company. I started flying again about 4 years ago. Spurred by what I saw as a fledgling market for UAV photography systems. Unfortunately, that was stomped on by 333 rule and needing to have a pilots license. So I just flew for enjoyment. 41 planes (gas and electric) many quads of all shapes and sizes multiple CP Helis. It became a passion. Heck I am even the VP of my local club.
With the advent of the FAR 41 Section 107. It peaked my interest again to possibly pursue a new re-invention in my career path. I recently purchased a Autel XSP and I have planes for a P4, Inspire 1 as well as a Matrice 100 coming soon. After passing my 107 test on Tuesday, I already have decided to try to make a living doing what I love. Tech and Flying.
I have registered my LLC with State of Texas, purchased my domain name and have started the ball rolling on getting the biz started. My interests are Agriculture, Mapping, Inspections, Search & Rescue and maybe some photography (going back to my Dallas roots).
I am very excited to see where this takes me.
