We recently worked with one of our clients to shoot a land survey using a drone. This was one of our more technical projects, as drones can be used to create three-dimensional point clouds for ground measurements. Accompanying us on this shoot was Evan Sedor, our spotter for the flight.
This shoot was particularly difficult because it required a special waiver from the Federal Aviation Administration due to the close proximity to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Airport (AVP). Because we were only a mere 1.5 miles from the runway, we could only fly 100 feet above ground level. That also meant that we were flying only a few feet above the lighting poles and power lines in the vicinity, making the space a very small corridor to operate in. Thanks to Evan’s keen eye as our spotter, we were able to successfully weave through the airspace, and even beat the rain by just a few minutes! Another survey planned and executed for our client.
