A Brief History on Skyport Drones & Why We Chose Medium
We figured since we’ll be spending the better part of this talking about our projects, activities, trends and other drone related content perhaps you’d like to know a little bit about us.
What We Do
While Skyport Drones does provide traditional aerial services, (aerial photography, and cinematography, and we do it well), we consider ourselves more of a data collection, asset management and analytics agency than anything else. We’ll get more into what that means a bit later, but in essence we put a strong emphasis on quantitative data that helps you maintain asset records, capture change over time, measures efficiency, mitigates risk/loss and provides measurable ROI. The last piece of that is, not only will we provide the data but unlike most, we will go the extra mile to interpret the data and present it in a way that is easily digested and useful to you.
“Skyport Drones became one of the first companies in the Southeast to successfully obtain the FAA Part 107 Remote Pilots Certificate.”
Having been conceptualized for years, Skyport Drones was established in the latter months of 2015, and while that may seem fairly recent, in terms of commercial drone companies, we were one of the early pioneers,coming in on the “second wave” (we are currently right in the middle of the 3rd wave with a surge new “companies” flying up on a weekly basis, pun intended), again this is something we will address later. Since then Skyport Drones became one of the first companies in the Southeast to successfully obtain the FAA Part 107 Remote Pilots Certificate. (Required to operate drones commercially, be careful there are lots of drone“companies” operating without this)

Why the Blog
So why the blog you ask? Simple, to inform, educate and update.
- Inform — The landscape of drones and their many uses is evolving on a monthly if not weekly basis, and it is our hopes to keep you informed as new changes arise, with that being said we know your time is valuable and that’s why we aim to keep all our entries at 3–7 minute reads.
- Educate — Let’s be honest the word “drone” has a bit of negative connotation wrapped around it, but with all the recent advancements in UAV (drone) technology most people are not aware of all the many benefits and uses drones can be used for. We aim to help companies and the general public gain clarity on the many ways they can be used for good and not evil.
- Update — While we love and surely utilize the Big 3 of Social Media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter), having worked with everyone from digital marketing agencies, civil engineering firms, and real estate to schools, fitness boot camps, and golf courses we found it hard to accurately and fully describe all the things we’ve had our hands in. (Try doing a case study in 140 characters or less :)). Medium gives us an informal, yet intimate platform to keep followers, clients, and competitors updated on past, current, and future projects.
