connexicore drone pilot network

Drone services are about providing perfection!

Despite the FAA regulations, the most critical element in drone operation safety is the remote pilot’s experience. This not only includes experience with flying the drone itself, which is critical for the safety of the public, but also includes experience in operating the camera. The way that images are taken, the overlap between images, the operation speed when images are taken, and other conditions are important for any successful drone aerial mapping project.

the need for a professional drone pilot network

Over the last few months I've had several conversations with people I respect in the drone industry about the necessity of a professional network of both remote (UAV) Drone pilots and clients to quantify the "trustworthiness" of people, companies, jobs, etc. Yes, there are pilot networks out there and aggregator (broker) services for drone jobs all over the place, but I don't think something has truly popped up yet to help stabilize and secure our "workforce" if you will. Regardless of solidity of contracts and doing everything the right way, we all risk getting burned by the wrong client and clients risk getting burned by a bad remote pilot experience.

I like to believe that ConnexiCore holds a high level of integrity and professionalism and I’m convinced that we could all benefit from a system of validating actors within the commercial drone realm. Think Angie's List for drone’s service providers maybe?

With the help of some key people in the industry and some very motivated partners, we have been quietly developing a plan over the last couple of years to create a comprehensive system of vetting drone work across the country. ConnexiCore’s team consists of cloud software industry veterans with many years of experience working in the telecommunications industry with “REAL” enterprise clients. Our experience and acute business acumen presents a unique opportunity for ConnexiCore to develop and successfully manage such a remote pilot network. 

Of critical importance to the acceptance of this “vetting system” is total transparency along with proper respect for all involved parties and a genuine spirit of concern for industry growth. It seems like too many of these new, startups are prioritizing their own profit over what seems best for all of us or even bigger the industry itself.

ConnexiCore is veteran-owned and has a growing community of certified, safe and compliant UAV pilots nationwide. We focus on bringing the best of the best pilots to join our dynamic team. We are very proud that our pilot network expansion and capabilities is off to a great start.
