“The drone job via Avian UAS was fantastic. These guys are way more than just drone pilots and helped work out ways to solve our problems. We had quite a technical issue to solve – this was not just taking photos – and Chris had the knowledge, expertise and vision to work out how we could achieve what we wanted. The outcome was all we had hoped for and more as we got some extra aerial shots ‘while he was here’. Chris also spotted a few other possible areas the drone technology could be used for and we are evaluating these. We would not hesitate to recommend Avian to anyone looking for Drone solutions.” – IT Manager, Logistics
