  1. Groovy! Have the winners of the interdrone ticket giveaway been announced?
  2. Thanks for the welcome @Isabella | UAV Coach! I haven't taken drones with me too many times yet. My drones were purchased by my company, so I was worried about damaging them on personal time, but I've been given permission to take them wherever and use them for whatever I want, so I'll be using them more on my own time. A little bit of my photography from overlanding trips, including some basic eclipse photography, can be found on Instagram @Free_Dominion. I'll check out that aerial photography page.
  3. My number took only a few days to show up on IACRA, then about 2 weeks to receive the physical license. If dronezone won't let you edit the aircraft registration, delete and re-register for commercial purposes. Concerning LAANC, the skyward website says: To submit an operation for LAANC approval, it must contain the following: An assigned Pilot-in-Command Pilot phone number Start and end date that is within the next 90 days Start and end times comprising a window of less than 12 hours No 0 altitude grids in the area of operation Skyward LAANC access requires a user’s planned operation to have each of those items in order to submit a request. Check here for more info on LAANC.
  4. Hello all! I'm an environmental scientist, geologist, GIS specialist, database manager and project manager at North Wind Services (the environmental branch of North Wind Inc.). I have my part 107 and have begun integrating UAS into various projects, as well as introducing the tech's viability to other PMs. I also wrote the UAS standard operating procedure, safety plan, hazard analysis and standardized flight log forms for my company. My intention is to get new types of sensors and data devices integrated to UAS data ports for real-time data feeds from more than just photographic devices. Aside from my work personality, I also kayak, hike, mountain bike, camp, target shoot recurve bows and firearms, I'm a powerbocker (I use air-trekkers carbon fiber stilts), I design and build my own motorcycles out of wrecked motorcycles, I built a long-distance overland camping vehicle, I've been an avid photographer since I was 9, and as an active host on couchsurfing dot org, I've hosted travelers from around the world (and done a little couchsurfing as well). I'm more of a listener than a talker, and tend to only speak up when I feel like there's something important to say rather than post whatever to get a high post count, but I look forward to interacting with the community and getting to know some of you.
  5. I'm a geologist, environmental scientist and GIS specialist. I recently convinced my company (environmental and engineering firm) to start integrating UAS into our environmental work. I believe we can help shape what is possible with UAS. I have my part 107 certification (the only one within my company of 1400, though we’ll be sending more people to ground school in preparation to acquire their part 107, followed by various other training classes, etc) and we've begun integrating UAS as a basic photographic and GIS point cloud tool. I wrote the UAS standard operating procedure, safety plan, hazard analysis and standardized flight log forms for my company, and have been demonstrating the usefulness of UAS to our ongoing projects in 36 states (soon to be international). I know there is much more capability to be developed though. In my industry, there are pieces of equipment/sensors which have to be manually used, on location (sometimes in hazardous locations), but I see these being developed to connect to UAS and communicating data in real time to the operator, removing the human risk element and streamlining certain workflows. I see so much more than just a photo/video tool in UAS. I would love the opportunity to meet people on the forefront of developing the future of UAS, learn from those who’ve been involved much longer than I, and get involved shaping the future of UAS. The environmental industry generally has not integrated UAS, but I see that changing, if someone within the environmental industry can show its viability and help develop the tools necessary to make UAS more relevant. Environmental is one of the fastest-growing industries around the world, and it could be one that embraces UAS as an integral and invaluable tool, employing many UAS pilots and opening the technology to new directions.
