Birds Eye Aerial Drones was one of the first companies in the United States granted permission by the FAA for commercial use of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). Our founder has over 30 years’ experience in the aviation industry to include, both large and small scale UAS. He is also a manned pilot, which provides extra insight into operations in the National Airspace (NAS). Along with the practical experience he also holds a Bachelors in Aviation management and an MBA. Additionally, we hold the following certifications: SDVOSB/CVE/SB/DVBE/SLBE.

Our other team members and partners are hand-picked. Chosen not only for their flight crew experience but also their additional life and work skills. With backgrounds such as law enforcement, special ops, and security, stormwater management, environmental rehabilitation, electrician, surveyor, etc. we bring a well-rounded UAS consulting team to the table. All these skills and knowledge come into play as we consult on various projects. Let us help you take your next project to new heights.

Building Your Own UAS Aviation Flight Division?

Finally, your company has decided to pull the trigger on bringing UAS in-house. We can help! To begin, we’ll assist with the structure and supporting documentation and manuals. We’ll then help you select and purchase your aircraft and support equipment. Finally, we’ll train, and keep current, your UAS division staff and flight crews. From start to finish we’ve got you covered with our UAS consulting. Our founder and many of our team members are not only UAS flight crew but are also ex-military personnel. Several of which were specifically in the instruction division of their respective fields. This means they have thousands of hours teaching and training, writing manuals, and keeping staff current. Let us put our experience to work for you.

“We hired Birds Eye Aerial Drones to produce a professional marketing video for our annual barbecue and tailgate festival that we put on in East County San Diego. Our team could not be happier with the aerial drone video that Scott and his team produced for our organization. If you want to work with a true professional and need aerial and ground video of any major event you are organizing then Birds Eye Aerial Drones is who you need to call.”

Shawn W.Owner, Cali Comfort

“Birds Eye Aerial Drones helped our team pull off the final portion of our event in Dana Point, CA – The Living Logo. They were awesome to work with. The content came out great – we especially loved the featured in the video that shows the location/venue and wraps it up into a globe at the end! Such an awesome effect for this event. Thank you so much!“

Kate T.Production Coordinator - INVNT

“Sheri and the team at Birds Eye Aerial Drones are helpful, punctual, and produce fantastic work. I used their services to take some photos of our property and the images turned out great! The Birds Eye Aerial Drones team had great insight into what would look best as far as what angles, in addition to providing competitive and fair prices for not only the footage but the prints as well. I highly recommend Birds Eye Aerial Drones for all of your drone footage needs!”

Aleyna W.HR Partner - Balanced Bookkeeping and Tax Service, Inc.

“I have used Birds Eye Aerial Drones for their graphic design ability! This may seem odd but it isn’t! Sheri Painter is an amazing graphic designer and I have used her exclusively to design my business logo. She is friendly, thoughtful and efficient. I absolutely love my logo and it really captures the feel of my business.”
