I'm just getting my business up and running (Grandview Drone Photography) and was concerned that I would have to buy hour by hour insurance until I had logged 50 to 100 hours flying time to get an annual policy. Just for the heck of it I sent a quote request to BWI --and was pleasantly surprised to get an offer, even though I only have about 36 hours of flying time. It's for an annual policy with $1,000,000 liability as well as coverage for the value of my drone. At any rate, I just thought I'd pass that info along.
So, i am working on getting my drone business off the ground (wink, wink). I would like to specialize in aerial surveys, and inspections. My question is, how do i get my finger on the pulse of my city to see how much demand there is out there. I would love to grow this business to have multiple pilots running multiple drones each day to collect data, eventually. I am not sure where to start learning about the opportunities in my market and getting my foot in the door. Any help would be appreciated.
Hi Everyone, I am very excited to join this UAV community and Forum. I have a background in Electro-Mechanical CADD as well as a background in Cyber-Network Security. I want to eventually start a small UAV company (in the works) but in the meantime, I want to grow and learn from everyone. I excited to start the boot camp class and further my understanding of UAV systems. Good to meet everyone:) Good Day!
Over the past few weeks as I've launched my new aerial photography business in San Antonio, Texas, easily the biggest challenge I've faced is establishing price points for the various packages I'd like to offer. I've done A LOT of research on this, but the prices and packages vary widely across the country, so what is fair while introducing the technology/service to a new market area?. Currently there is only one other business in the area legally providing these services, and I'm still waiting for my 333 Exemption, so I've also had to balance my desire to promote the business and gain market share with the fact that I cannot yet charge for the services rendered. Considerations we can discuss include: business structure (LLC, Corporation, LLP etc), budget, target audience, partnerships etc. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and recommendations.
