"UAVs ARE AIRCRAFT and introducing aircraft into the National Airspace is regulated, for good reason. 
UAVs still require a 'human in the loop' and that person should be well trained in 'Aviation First' skills, as having data is only useful if it's repeatable, safe and legal.
With over 100 years of aviation experience in-house, we service Canada and its unique environmental and regulatory requirements. 
Enjoy the benefits of this novel technology with the peace of mind that compliant, safe personnel are conducting the operations.
We are the institutional aviation company your business needs to acquire pivotal, actionable data"
- Sean Greenwood, President

Assets Change Over Time.

Pipelines age. Mining and agricultural operations are prone to trespassers and other unwelcome guests. Accidents happen. In some regions, assets are also targets of attack. The recent passage of Bill C-46 mandates the monitoring of active and abandoned hazardous assets on an ongoing basis. We operate air-based surveillance vehicles to reduce the expense of legislated compliance.

The highest Standards Are Our Minimum.

Our UAVs are only operated by professionally licensed pilots. We have thousands of combined flight hours. We are experienced aviators with tested knowledge of Canadian aviation laws and flight safety procedures.
