The idea for ProFlight UAS came from the owner's long work in the Environmental Remediation/Unexploded Ordnance industry working on field projects using GIS and integrated databases. One thing always lacking was a high quality, current, georeferenced aerial photograph of the work site. Despite their obvious utility, the cost and complexity of acquiring such photos was always prohibitive. Because of new technologies in unmanned aerial photographic platforms available commercially, and the recent rule changes put in place by the Federal Aviation Administration, the time is finally right to offer the next generation in high resolution aerial photography in a manner that is affordable and approachable by both individuals and small businesses. Getting current, high quality photos should be easy, without confusing jargon or an elitist attitude.
About the owner: Terry Willis
After an eight year stint as a US Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Technician, Terry spent the next twenty six years in the corporate world working to clean up unexploded military ordnance and hazardous waste sites across the country and in a few foreign countries. Much of that time was spent coordinating field operations using integrated GIS and database systems. This is where he learned the use and value of aerial photography, both archival and modern. He is also an avid amateur nature photographer.
Our Core Values
Integrity: We will always be up front and honest in our business dealings. We will never alter photographs to intentionally misrepresent actual conditions . If we make a mistake, we will own up to it and work with our clients towards a mutually acceptable solution. Integrity is the habit of a lifetime, and will not be sacrificed either personally or professionally.
Professionalism: High emotions and personal agendas have no place in business, and we will behave in a professional manner at all times. The customer may not always be right, but he/she is still our customer and deserves to be treated with respect, as does everyone we interact with on behalf of the company.
Fair Value: We will present our products at a price that is fair to both ourselves and our clients. We will neither unfairly undercut a competitor nor overcharge a customer. Our business is built on a foundation of long term relationships, and a fair, consistent price is an important component of those relationships.
Safety: The health and safety of our people, customers, and the general public is of primary importance. We will take every reasonable precaution to prevent injury to ourselves or others. No project, vehicle, or flight operation is worth injury to another or damage to property.
