We like to feature a variety of examples of the types of pilots in our network, from part-time Pilots like PJ Cook to full-time Pilots like Brian Deatherage. Today, we're excited to feature Kenneth Ewald, a DroneBase Pilot who is using his retirement to fly the skies of San Antonio, Texas, whenever he can!
Ewald has been in the DroneBase Pilot Network for just about a year, and specializes in capturing aerial imagery and video for realtors, contractors, home builders, home inspectors and insurance adjusters in the greater San Antonio area.As Kenneth puts it, "I like flying a variety of missions. The more challenging the better. DroneBase provides that better than any similar service."
