The DroneBase team recognizes that one of our core strengths is our network of extremely talented pilots. We value the professionalism and skills that our pilots bring to each and every DroneBase Mission, delivering consistently high quality to our customers. In appreciation, we want to spotlight some of our ace pilots, starting with PJ.
PJ is one of our highly skilled pilots, a military veteran, and has been working with DroneBase for close to two years. He’s based out of the Tampa Bay area in Florida and works as an IT Manager when he’s not flying his DJI Inspire 1. Here’s more with PJ…
