Hello Fellow Pilots! My name is Sam Krochman and I am the CEO and founder of 191Above Aerial Photography. I started my company back in late 2013, and I have been flying ever since! I am also proud to say that I was the first recipient of the Drone Pilot Ground School scholarship, and I received my training through UAVCoach. Alan and Isabella at UAVCoach have been tremendous helps and I attribute a lot of my success and I am very grateful to them for giving me a shot in the industry. I got into the drone industry accidentally and I never knew how much I would love it. I originally purchased a Phantom 2 Vision+ for a school project, and then I realized that I could really make a difference in the real estate industry by providing aerial photography services. If you are interested in a little bit more detail of how I started, visit 191above.com/about-me. Since the start of my company I have done all sorts of jobs of all sizes. I have provided services for multi-million dollar homes, and projects that extend hundreds of miles up and down the west coast, see 191above.com/see-our-work for examples! I am so happy that I am a part of this amazing community and I look forward to continuing discussions throughout this forum! If you have any questions for me or want to chat, please feel free to shoot me an email or reply to this post. My email is Sam@191above.com, you can also connect with me through my website, 191above.com. Happy Flying! Sam Krochman
Hello Everyone! I've been reading posts in this forum for the past year or so. It's been a wealth of information and has brought some sanity to me in this ever-changing industry! As of Feb this year I'm 107 certified. Started out learning to fly manually with a micro drone practicing in indoors. After successfully hitting my wife one time two many in her head. Moved up to a Latrax Alias outdoors. It was the most stable under $100 mid size model and enabled me to build up my skills, (still have much to learn) confidence and above all situational awareness. Watched many of YouTube clips of Cassey Neistat and as much about this industry as humanly possible. I recently went to the LA international drone expo in Dec. Although not a big expo, I made some great connections and was able to benefit from the info presented in manageable portions. My Dad was a Aviation enthusiast, retired USAF airframe mechanic and B-17 flight engineer and instructor. His legacy inspired me to find my passion with flying remote sUAS's and jumping in head first (or is it nose first?) in this amazing industry. I look forward to learning more from the experts and like minded souls. Thanks Alan and to Christian for putting up with my neophyte questions. The 107 test prep and aerial film editing courses were invaluable and are continually used for reference and clarification. Happy and Safe Flying! @HinksFlyer
