Drone Pilot Inc.

Setting the Standard for Public Safety Unmanned Aerial Operations

We started Drone Pilot Inc in 2014 to assist Public Safety agencies with standing up unmanned aerial programs, conducting UA Public Safety Operations with our active and retired public safety/military flight teams. The DPI Eyes Overhead© UA Public Safety Training and Certification Program was built from experience. We have accurate information for public safety agencies looking for help with policies, laws, regulations, FAA/COA authority, deployment, and counter drone programs.

Setting the Standard
Drone Pilot Inc, was registered and established in Texas on April 10, 2014 and located in Austin. Drone Pilot is a Veteran-owned Small business, founded by Austin Texas Peace Officer John Buell, partnered with legendary FireFighter Gene Robinson (THE GRANDFATHER of SUAS SAR) focused primarily as a professional service provider of unmanned air, ground, and maritime robotics. Drone Pilot was awarded one of the first FAA 333 exemption for SUAS training.
for public safety
Drone Pilot was created to set a public safety standard of operations, safety, pilot flight training, flight checks, platform knowledge, platform maintenance, site assessments, hazard awareness for clients with no knowledge of operating the technology. We have witnessed inexperienced, reckless operators, and irresponsible acts which to the public has blamed on the DRONE technology and not where the true cause of the problem lies, with the pilot!
Unmanned Aerial Operations
Drone Pilot has completed assignments across the globe for AMD, Malibu Boats, Blue Origin Rockets, Space X Rockets, 3DRobotics, Texas Army National Guard, American Heroes Airshow, NIST, RED BULL, F1/COTA, Natural Resources Testing LLC, Texas State University, US Coast Guard, UCSD, Army CORP Of Engineers, FBI, Texas Rangers, City Of Austin, and 42+ more. Gene Robinson and Drone Pilot flight teams have completed 100s of public safety missions across 30 states and 5 countries and are directly credited for 13 rescues/recoveries to date.

100-Hour Unmanned Aerial Public Safety Operational Training and Certification Program

Before we can enroll an agency flight team into our 100-hour program we will need several questions answered. We like to set up a conference calls or face to face to help customize the program by identifying the needs and requirements if your specific environment such as:

  • Missions
  • Required data
  • Equipment
  • Funding
  • Data storage/FAA compliance
  • SOP/SOG
  • PIO packages
  • Size/scope of the UA Program
  • to just name a few

Cost: BASED ON REGION CALL OR EMAIL FOR QUOTE

We suggest attending 30,000 Foot Public Safety UA Administrator's Course to better prepare you to build the right UA/Robotics Program for your agency.

If your agency enrolls and completes the DPI 100-hour Unmanned Aerial Public Safety Operational Training and Certification Program, the cost of the 30,000 Foot Public Safety Unmanned Aerial Administrator's Course will be credited toward the 100-hour program.

QUESTIONS

Here are some of the questions you should be prepared to answer when standing up your UA Program. Again if you can't readily answer these questions, you will benefit significantly from attending the 30,000' UA Program.

1. Under what FAA authority will your Flight Team Operate (COA/Self Certify, FAR Part 107)

2. Number of Flight Team Members to be trained (we recommend 2 minimum members PIC/VO)

3. What MISSIONS will your agency want to collect data, SAR, Crime Scene,?

4. Which UA Platform is the PSA looking to select, Fixed Wing/Multirotor both? (based on missions/data needing collected)

5. Will assistance be needed for flight team selection, flight simulator testing, or UA program administrator/manager selection?

6. Single jurisdiction or multiple jurisdiction/discipline response?

7. Projected course start date of your flight team training and certification program?

8. SOP/SOG required before or after program? DPI offers complete protocol and procedural manuals for PSA UA Flight Team Operations and UA platform procedural manuals.

9. Will a public information package be needed, supporting web site/social media, presentation to city council/county commissioners, or public groups? (complete transparency of a PSA program is highly recommended if not required)

10. What will the PSA flight team foot print desired size be? (Small quick response verses Mobile Command encrypted broadcasting/monitoring)

11. Will automatic upload/maintained virtual logbook with organization branding, with mission, equipment, and crew data logged profiles. Along with 3rd party monitoring for FAA/state compliance be needed?

12. Will PSA need assistance writing FAA Certification Of Authorization (COA)?

13. Is there funding available for your UA Program? Generally a 4-6 member flight team with 2 training/mission drones, 1 designated-mission drone (Multirotors), and LITE support equipment package will cost about $20,000-30K to fund start up and 5k year for maintenance budgeting.
