3. Consider inspection services and aerial surveillance

Having received UAV pilot training needn’t limit you to photography only – you can also offer inspection services to clients, such as those in the construction industry who need “eyes” on every facet of their projects, or even owners of ranch properties and farms in Canada who need an aerial view of their properties surveillance or other reasons.

4. Tap into the trend of oil and gas surveying

Drone services will remain vital for scanning well sites and pipelines for leaks, as well as getting an overview of sites and taking pictures. This important service will ensure structures are properly monitored and maintained.

5. Adapt your services to offer assistance in search and rescue operations 

Drone services can play an important part in search and rescue operations as they can help authorities to target areas that are hard to scope or difficult to navigate. If you are willing to offer such a service, you could play an immeasurable role in disaster relief as well as potentially saving lives!
