Up, Up and Away! Aeon Unmanned and Eco Roof and Solar Show Home Inspectors How To Use A Powerful New Tool: Drones!
Drones were a huge topic of interest at the annual International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) convention in Longmont, Colorado, on June 12 and 13. In a tag-team workshop, Greg DePrez of Aeon Unmanned described the key features of drone technology, then Kayleen Kesterson of Eco Roof and Solar, who flies a drone daily to inspect roofs, showed how just one overhead photo of a damaged roof provided enough detail to support a successful replacement claim of $15,000. Later, in an outside demonstration, Kayleen flew a DJI Inspire 2 drone to demonstrate how an inspector can quickly and safely gather data from hard-to-reach vantage points. And wow...since the convention, we've already had a home inspector graduate from our June drone license course with a "pass" on her FAA drone license exam, and we have several more scheduled in future courses. Take our drone license course to legally and safely make drones a tool for your business!
