Commercial Drone Services

With the emergence of drones, aerial imagery has spread quickly and is now used by film makers, marketing agencies, real estate agents, construction companies, estate owners, and wineries.

Get the attention of your audience and show what you have from a new perspective.

Capturing inspirational aerial photos and videos requires a broad set of skills.

What is Important When you Hire a Drone Operator

Safety is our top priority. That’s why we:

 Do not fly directly over people or moving vehicles

 Always fly with a visual observer as recommended by the FAA

 Maintain commercial liability insurance

 Perform an on-site risk assessment of weather, buildings, people, trees and power lines

Guidelines for Neighborly Drone Use

 We operate under the “Voluntary Best Practices for UAS Privacy” promoted by the FAA

 We do not utilize personally identifiable images of individuals without prior permission

Up to Date Equipment

 We currently use two drones to accommodate different needs. The smaller drone is a DJI Phantom 4 with redundant sensors for higher reliability. The bigger drone is an 11lb. hexacopter with a zoomable Sony RX100 camera. Both drones are GPS controlled with the latest safety features (automatic return to home, geo-fencing)

 All of our drones are registered with the FAA

Mike Jetter's Background

Mike's new drone business is the culmination of his interest and expertise in technology, creative work, photography, and in flying. 

Working for 20 years as a software engineer, his focus was on the visual aspects of user interface design. Eventually he co-founded Mindjet, an award-winning international company. The process of launching a start-up and building it into a success has taught him the true meaning of professional service and quality development, and about the importance of listening to and understanding individuals’ needs. Mindjet was recently sold to Corel.

In 2006, Mike began to fly model helicopters and airplanes, and moved on to drones in 2011. Over the last few years, he has become proficient in building and maintaining drones and has learned how to combine his flying and photography skills to produce amazing aerial imagery.

Prior to the new commercial FAA drone regulations, Mike worked on many volunteer projects using the name Discoveries From Above. His panoramas were featured in Corte Madera for the city’s 2016 Centennial, and can be seen in the Town Hall. Marin TV is currently showing some of his videos on their local Marin channel.
