2 years experience flying sUAS DJI P4 Pro utilizing Ground Station Pro, Matrice 600 coupled with Reigl LiDar for Remote Sensing field work; Pix4D and AutoCad for processing and digitization of data collected. Approximately 800 hours TT as a Part 61 Private and Commercial/Multi/Instrument Airplane Pilot. Provided Ground School training for several former co-workers to take the FAA Part 107 Written Exam with a 100% pass rate, utilizing tools from Part 61 Certified Flight Instructor course I took in 2009.

At WithersRavenel, I worked solely as an Instrument Person on 2 and 3 person crews for approximately 18 months. I have experience operating older Topcon Instruments with Spectra Precision data collectors as well as newer Leica Instruments, both manual and robotic, coupled with newer model Carlson Surveyor data collectors. I also have close to 4 years of experience using these data collectors while coupled with both Trimble and Spectra GPS rovers. My field duties included conventional location, staking and GPS location.
I began cross-training within my Geomatics Department after my stent as an Instrument Person in order to assist the company in developing it's SUE and Remote Sensing Departments while continuing to help survey field crews at times. I have roughly 1.5 years of experience in the field as an SUE Tech with experience using RadioDetection and Metrotech Instruments as well as Mala Ground Penetrating Radar. At times, I operated in a Crew Chief capacity for utility locations as well as operating a small Vacuum Excavation Rig. I have experience completing these tasks for local companies as well as the Department of Transportation. During this time, I also helped introduce conventional surveying to the SUE Department as our Survey Department didn't have sufficient staff to locate paint marks. I subsequently trained current and future members of this Department to use manual and robotic Instruments as well as data collectors.
As a licensed, fixed-wing Commercial Aviator as well as a licensed Part 107 Pilot, my cross-training eventually stopped as I became a full-time Remote Sensing Technician. My knowledge and experience provided a unique dynamic of safety, awareness and procedure to ensure successful operations in the tricky world of aviation. This experience also enabled me to provide specialized preparation for several employees in order to ensure a 100% pass rate of the FAA Part 107 written exam. My field duties primarily included piloting a Matrice 600 drone with a Reigl Sensor to gather topographic data. This was coupled with office duties of processing GPS data using Pix4D software. I also completed photogrammetry projects utilizing a Phantom 4 drone, Pix 4D software along with Carlson and AutoCad to digitize SUE locate marks. I was able to utilize all the surveying skills developed since my initial hire to help efficiently complete tasks as a Remote Sensing Technician. I also hold a valid TWIC card. My total time in the Remote Sensing Field including cross-training as well as full time was approximately 2 years at WithersRavenel.
As my first surveying experience, I was trained to operate an older model TopCon total station coupled with an older TDS Ranger data collector. I was responsible for conventionally collecting data as well as construction staking for small residential homes. I also developed a working knowledge of GPS location using an older Spectra GPS rover.
In December of 2006, I received my Private Pilot License through this program.
In August of 2008, I received my Commercial Single/Multi Engine Instrument Airplane pilot license through this training program.
From 2004 until late 2005, I pursued a degree in Nuclear Medicine and completed course work until I made the decision to change career paths and become a Commercial Aviator.
