    Welcome @Stan Stamper to the forum.

    Hello from central Illinois

    WElcome to the forum @GregS13. NIce to see more military here. Thank you for your service. Where were you stationed ? Hmmm, never tried landing on a aircraft carrier, so I don't know what's easier. I'm sure with time you'll get better with the drones though. You'll be able to find all sorts of good information here. And if you have any questions, feel free to ask.
  3. I found Gold !!! Amazing job @JBR LIFE Photography ! very well done.
  4. Hurricane Michael sUAS Pilots Grounded via VIP TFR We continue to deploy a limited number of pilots for the Telecom companies. We have all seen media reports of the destruction caused by Hurricane Michael. Our pilot network team is routinely experiencing firsthand, poor communications, and limited access to the affected areas. We believe more pilots will be activated once the roads are passable, and Search and Rescue operations subside. Today several of our pilots were grounded today via VIP TFR due to POTUS, Governor, and other VIPs viewing the altered landscape via helicopters and other low flying aircraft. Below is a picture of one of the twisted assets one of our pilots captured. We will continue to call pilots as they are activated and will receive the Independent Contractors Agreement and W-9 forms for review and digital signatures via Docu-Sign. If you have additional questions, please primarily utilize email; the preferred email address is PilotNetwork@SkySourceAerial.com (Sky Source Aerial is the service division of Florida Drone Supply). Thank-you for your patience and continued willingness to assist, if needed.

    HI FROM VA

    welcome

    New drone

    How is it working for you ? How long have you had it ? I looked it up on amazon, and it has some pretty sad reviews. Before I get to much into it, Welcome to the forum ! Glad to have you here.
  7. Hurricane Michael sUAS Recovery Efforts - Status Even though we have activated and deployed a limited number of pilots, we are still waiting for the larger contracts from the Telecom companies. We personally flew manned aviation in the panhandle and Tallahassee region yesterday and witnessed, firsthand, poor communications, and more people evacuating. Many of the communications are limited to satellite phones. At least one of the mobile carriers is using tethered aerostat/UAS systems to provide portable mobile cellular sites. We appreciate your patience and we will provide updated information as it becomes available. We will continue to call pilots as they are activated and will receive the Independent Contractors Agreement and W-9 forms for review and digital signatures viaDocu-Sign.

    Very beautiful !
  10. Just to keep you guys updated on what goes on. you probably see this already on the news.
  11. Hurricane Michael's Destruction Hurricane Michael made landfall in the Florida Panhandle and continued through Georgia and into the Carolinas and northward along the Mid-Atlantic seaboard. We have activated and deployed a limited number of pilots; they evaluated many telecom towers and reported much destruction left behind from the storm. The recovery priority reports from the manned aircraft ISR civil operations, should be completed will hopefully allow more pilot deployments tomorrow. . Communications with telecom, and utilities companies continue. We appreciate your patience and we will provide updated information as it becomes available. ACTIVATED pilots will receive the Independent Contractors Agreement and W-9 forms for review and digital signatures via Docu-Sign. If you have additional questions, please primarily utilize email; the preferred email address is PilotNetwork@SkySourceAerial.com (Sky Source Aerial is the service division of Florida Drone Supply). Thank-you for your patience and continued willingness to assist, if needed.
  12. Hurricane Michael Daylight Shows Destruction Hurricane Michael made landfall yesterday with 155 mph winds in the Florida Panhandle and continued through Georgia and into the Carolinas and northward along the Mid-Atlantic seaboard. We have activated and deployed a limited number of pilots and are still waiting for the bulk of the precursory damage overviews are performed with manned aircraft. As you know, we will have a better idea of scope and magnitude of sUAS operations, after the manned aircraft ISR civil operations have been completed. Communications with telecom, and utilities companies continue. We have been told to notify our pilots of the expectation to be "activated" (meaning placed on either stand-by ordeployed) in phases (i.e. 10-20 approved pilots at a time). The pilots who reside closest to the affected areas will be activated first. YOU WILL BE CALLED IF/WHEN ACTIVATED.... Please, do not assume just because you are receiving this email, or if you drive to the area, you are activated. Hurricanes and their destruction are unpredictable; consequently, please be patient and we will provide updated information as it becomes available. ACTIVATED pilots will receive the Independent Contractors Agreement and W-9 forms for review and digital signatures via Docu-Sign. Minimum sUAS requirements: 20 MexaPixel sensor, and current FAA Part 107 certificate number If you have additional questions, please primarily utilize email; the preferred email address is PilotNetwork@SkySourceAerial.com (Sky Source Aerial is the service division of Florida Drone Supply). Thank-you for your patience and continued willingness to assist, if needed.
  13. Hurricane Michael Response - Waiting For Daylight Hurricane Michael made landfall this afternoon in the Florida Panhandle and continues through Georgia and northeastward into the Carolinas and into the Atlantic. We are in a holding pattern until tomorrow morning when the precursory damage overviews are performed with manned aircraft. After the initial assessments, we will have a better idea of scope and magnitude of sUAS operations. Communications with power, telecom, and utilities companies continue. We have been told to notify our pilots of the expectation to be "activated" (meaning placed on eitherstand-by or deployed) in phases (i.e. 10-20 approved pilots at a time). The pilots who reside closest to the affected areas will be activated first. YOU WILL BE CALLED IF/WHEN ACTIVATED.... Please, do not assume just because you are receiving this email, or if you drive to the area, you are activated.

Minimum sUAS requirements: 20 MexaPixel sensor, and current FAA Part 107 certificate number If you know of any Part 107 pilots who are not part of our network and are interested in being contacted as a potential Hurricane Michael response sUAS pilot, please have them either complete the form at https://www.tfaforms.com/4694848 or respond to this email to indicate your level of interest as well as your current location.
