Our Ground Control flight crew monitors the flight path, animation, battery strength, GPS location, temperature and altitude. Anomalies are instantly alerted to us so flight crew can determine necessary corrective action needed. Similar to commercial aircraft, our commercial drones carry multiple radios operating simultaneously on different frequencies providing multiple backups and redundancy.
Aerial Drone Light Shows are flown by FAA certified drone pilots who are experts in relevant aviation subject matter, including regulations, aerodynamics, weather and safety. Prior to every Drone show, pre-flight checklists are used to make sure everything is in order: drones are fully operational, flight plans and animations are programmed, navigation is synchronized and tested, batteries are charged, and the flight area is clear. The mission of the aerial drone light show is autonomously flown then returns to its base and lands.
