About

At Fly Sky Photography, Inc we believe the sky’s the limit for capturing and filming aerial images of outdoor world around us.

Who We Are

We are a mobile company.  Our business office is located in a suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but our pilots and crew travel across the United States to service clients and to assist law enforcement in search and rescue situations.

Our pilots and crew are experienced in a variety of skills, such as, photography, videography, video editing, computer repair, IT technology, Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) operation and repair, business management and accounting, sales, marketing, and website design.

We are licensed in Pennsylvania, insured,  and we carry Unemployment Compensation insurance on all our employees. We provide Certificate of Insurance to our clients upon request.

Our UASs are registered with the FAA.  We adhere to FAA regulations and fly under the FAA 333 exemption guidelines. Our company and employees are committed to safety.

Our Philosophy

Fly Sky Photography treats all customers as we would like to be treated. We endeavor to accommodate all customers and budgets. In this new and innovative industry of UAS aerial photography, we endeavor to enlighten and educate customers, communities, and the public about the unique and cost effective uses of UAS. We delight in showcasing the high quality videos and still photography our UAS cameras capture.

The Equipment We Use

All of the UAS we fly are equipped with a variety of safety features, including GPS syncing, Watch Me hovering, and Return Home mode. They are equipped with an internal chip preventing them from exceeding the FAA accepted UAS altitude height of 400 feet. And their control systems alert our pilots of No Fly Zones within the flight area.

Each UAS has a 3-axis maneuverable gimbal offering camera stability and flexibility. It allows our cameras to capture smooth video during flight – even in the event of a wind gust.

The two cameras we use produce High Definition and Ultra High Definition, 12.4 megapixel, high-quality video  at 24 or 30 fames per second, still images, and slow motion video 1080p at 60 fames per second.

Live-streaming video to our UAS controller and ground station allows our pilots, crew and you to see what our cameras are filming as we fly.

One Final Note

Adhering to FAA safety regulations, our pilots Do Not fly in unsafe conditions unless we are assisting law enforcement in a search and rescue situation. Unsafe conditions include: high winds, rain, heavy snow, and other conditions that we deem unflyable.
