High resolution cameras can take photos and videos for a wide application of uses. Possibilities include inspections, mapping transportation projects and pipelines, and documenting construction projects and riparian restoration projects over time.
Drones can be operated up to 400 feet above ground level following guidelines of the FAA’s 107 B rules.

RVCOG is proud to announce the development of a drone services program.  In order to comply with FAA 107B regulations, RVCOG has certified 107B pilots on staff.
