Greetings. After many years as a photographer and an RC CP Helicopter Pilot, I've finally put the 2 together to start a new venture. I'm interested in piloting for just about anything at this time, but I intend to get into inspection and agricultural survey, or emergency response. I was a remote duty medic for the Commercial Deep Sea Diving industry, and have worked in Emergency Medical Services for most of my adult life in one capacity or another, usually as a volunteer. I'm in the process of forming a new company to provide my services.
Hello everyone! My name is Frank Lovering and I've been flying drones over 3 years now and passed the initial 107 Certification Test 2 years ago plus the 2nd test 2 months ago. All of my experience has been on DJI drones (P4, Inspire 1v2 and now a Mavic 2 Pro). I'm interested in learning about surveying with the new DJI P4 RTK, the Mavic 2 Pro for Search and Rescue and the Matrice 200 for Ag purposes. And also interested in learning how to fly tiny whoops and race drones. I'm in Yakima, WA. Would love to know where to look for folks using drones professionally and for racing!
Here is an interview that I did with our Little Rock, AR, TV station KTHV channel 11 on search and rescue using thermal camera equipped drones. http://www.thv11.com/life/s-w-a-r-m-needing-donations-for-more-thermal-camera-equipped-drones/508119147 (May not work with Firefox on smartphones - use Chrome instead.)

Hello Jeff Here, I am AMA #855205. I am also a Member of ERCA (Eugene Radio Control Aeronauts) I have been building and flying RC fixed wing aircraft for 20+ years. I have been building and flying multirotors since there inception. I have several quads one hex heavy lift. And a lot of FVP gear. I am a member of "Airbears" Search and Rescue. I am a Licensed and Bonded Master Carpenter and Maintenance Engineer. And have an Associates Degree in Electronics Tech. I believe that Most of the incidents that have happened with multi-rotors and drones would not have happened IF it was REQUIRED to be an AMA member. AND required to follow/ abide by AMA's rules, bylaws and suggestions. Although accidents happen at least they would not have been a Stupid or Ignorant Accident. What we fly is Electronic and/or Mechanical. And they will inherently fail at some time. But by following rules and not ever being complacent. And injury to someone is unlikely. As one of the rules is "Not to fly over People!" Thanks..... And May All Your Landing Be Smooth... Jeff Engel 541-513-2716
