About Drone Dogs - Jim
FAA 107 Certified
Licensed to Drone and make your visions into a reality.
Originally from the heartland of Pennsylvania, Jim is a seasoned Principal Software Engineer by trade having worked in the Baltimore/DC area. With over thirty years working in the intelligence community and creating awesome systems to help our Warfighters. Jim has the entrepreneurial spirit and started two small businesses while maintaining his software career. Now at the thirty-year mark of his software career, he just grew tired of the bullshit and decided to leave the rat race and move to Key West with his family. Still trying to dabble in software development for the government customer in Key West, he quickly realized that he was done working for other people in a soul-sucking job. He needed a change and needed to work for himself and having a passion for what he did on a day-to-day basis.
Jim decided to pursue the Drone Life. Studying all there is about drone aerial photography, videography and piloting a drone. Jim received his FAA Part 107 sUAS Certification and started putting all his business and drone knowledge into practice. With wisdom being the application of knowledge, there was no going back to a crappy soul-sucking computer desk job. Life is just too damn short for that.
Having passion, a strong work ethic and the attention to customer service, Jim is focused on building the most successful drone aerial service business in the Florida Keys and beyond. Jim is currently based in Key West and is in the process of getting waivers to fly legally as a commercial drone pilot in the Class D restricted airspace of Key West.
Jim recently won the 2017 Drone-U Fly-In where he competed against 75 pilots from around the world in six challenging real-world events.
The Drone Dogs are FAA Certified sUAS Remote Pilots located in the Florida Keys. Incredible aerial photography and videography company. Drone Dogs will travel anywhere in the world.
