Challenge: Finding a Qualified Drone Pilot
The process of finding and negotiating terms with a drone pilot can easily take a few weeks for every new project or location. This is a major hurdle for most companies to get started with a drone mapping program or turning it into a sustainable operational model.
You can try online freelancer websites, but these require details that you will need to heavily research. Costs can vary by country, drone equipment, pilot credentials or experience, project requirements, location, and many other factors.
There are a few drone networks online, but these mainly specialize in photography. So, they are lacking the necessary skills, experience, software, and equipment for conducting professional 3D Drone Mappings.
Finally, there are some commercial drone networks, but these also work like a freelancer website where drone pilots post bids on your project. The work is still on you to interview and negotiate. This is because the primary business model for these companies is not to sell drone mapping services but rather to sell drones or their subscriptions to their software platform.
Your best option is to search for drone mapping pilots in the surrounding areas and see if they are willing to drive the distance. This takes time and effort.
