CT Army National Guard

Happy Wednesday! We had the pleasure of working with the CT Army National Guard and RC Propbusters this week in teaching 6th – 7th – 8th graders all about careers in aviation!  This has been a theme for us this month.  When both Bryan & I were that age, technology was obviously not where is it today.  With the ever evolving classroom we can’t even begin to imagine the possibilities at the kids fingertips!

David from RC Propbusters demonstrated flying, and we handled the technical side like, what are drones as well as discussing the job applications.  Among those applications were 3D modeling, thermal imaging, aerial video/photo and construction progression.  Together, we had the students:

-interact with 3D models

-learn how to read a thermal scan with our Flir thermal imager

-watch videos containing aerial photo/video

-got a sneak peak of what construction progress looks like for a construction company

All in all we had a blast the past two days teaching.  A special thank you to the Army National Guard, RC Propbusters hobbyist pilot David and also to the CT Airport Authority for partnering with us.  Looking forward to seeing the youth of tomorrow in aviation careers!

Happy Friday

Happy Friday!  We are winding down for some weekend relaxation (just kidding we’ve got some work to do! It’s going to be so fun!)

Check out the write up from our school program last week at E Granby High School click here

We wanted to keep this post short and sweet and wish each and every one of you a glorious weekend!

Middle October

Happy Middle October!  That means Daylight savings ending is right around the corner (Nov 4th to be exact!).  This fall has been a busy one and we love it!  We are working in conjunction with the Groton New London Airport & the National Guard creating an entire career day around aviation.  We are adding to the momentum of teaching last week at E Granby High School, and we are pumped to teach again!

This will be a very exciting 2 day event for students.  We are presenting along with RC Propbusters member & pilot, David Grainger.  David is a local drone racer and has extensive knowledge of aircrafts and UAV’s.  He is a great partner and we are excited to show these kids some aviation fun!

We also have been doing consistent work weekly on a construction project for Lehto Design & Build doing progress videos as well as creating a 3D model.  We love creating 3D models, they are so versatile!

That’s it for us this week and we hope everyone is enjoying their Wednesday! Exciting things to come. We will see you here next week! If you want more AerialScope on the spot check out our social media pages on Insta: @aerialscope FB: @aerialscopevi.

Weekend

Happy Weekend everyone! We are so excited there is a fall chill in the air! We have lots to prepare for the week so we are eager to keep the momentum going! Speaking at the high school this past week was so encouraging.  Seeing the younger generations eager to learn more about UAV’s and aviation was exciting!  We had the chance to speak to over 100 students this past week and we can’t wait to do it all again soon.

 

 

Teaching Classes

Happy Wednesday! Hope where ever you are today has been a good one!  It is 80 degrees and sunny here in New England and we are almost halfway through October which is crazy!  Tomorrow we will be teaching 3 classes at a local High School.  We will be talking about what it’s like to own a UAV business, the uses for UAV’s, demonstrating and also encouraging career paths in aviation.

These young minds have a lot on their plate and we are excited to give them a break from their usual classes to spend their time with us and have some fun.  I have a background in education so this is a breeze for me!  We love educating anyone on the use of UAV’s.

In 2 weeks we will be speaking at another school two days in a row.  We are teaming up with RC Propbusters  pilot, David Grainger and he will be showing the youth some fun tricks with his racing drones.

So stay tuned for pictures & videos from the school programs! Have a great rest of the week!

10 Easy Ways to Save $ & Energy in Your Home

Happy Wednesday!

Did you know that Bryan is a licensed home inspector?  Home inspections can be done at any time, not just for when you are considering buying a home.  If you are a current home owner, you might want to consider getting a home inspection so you can stay on top of things in your home.  Pre inspections are also a good idea if you’re considering selling your home.

As the leaves are changing here in New England, and as the days start to get cooler here are a few tips & tricks to save money and energy in your home.

Weekly blog

Happy Friday friends!

We hope you have some fun plans this weekend!  We will be tightening and finishing up some projects we have going on.  We have been doing some sweet 3D models and we are so excited to share them with you!  3D modeling is such a unique fun tool for businesses to use.  Besides being esthetically pleasing and marketable on a digital platform, they are also very useful for other industries to make measurements from and utilize to make work flows easier.  This is an example of what we will be talking about on our podcast!  We have 1 episode done and we will be filming another 1 or 2 before we start to upload them.  We have been so excited to share some of this with you all!

I will also start to post more regularly and I’ve chosen Wednesdays to be those lucky days.  Anyone else have a million reminders on their phone? I can’t be the only one! We use those little boxes for everything these days, they are so versatile!  I’ve set my reminder every Wednesday and will be creating fun content every week from our travels, our projects, as well as useful info like our Mold blog!  If there is any topic in particular you would like to read send me an email or reach out via social networks and I would be more than happy to write about it!

Have a great weekend and I’ll see you all on Wednesdays!

 

 

 

Podcast

Say whaaaaaaa??! Yup! AerialScope started a podcast! We recently recorded our first episode!  Our plan is to record a few at a time and upload them all together.  The biggest question has been do we do just audio or do we incorporate video as well.  We have a unique set up because our podcast partner, Scott of Quad Axis lives in Texas.   Scott brings lots of experience and knowledge to our podcast and we are excited to partner with him for this fun venture!  We met Scott while doing a 3D model out west last year and it’s been fun to have another brain to bounce ideas off of.  This is the birth of a new industry here so there are questions, mixed emotions etc around drones.  We want to help educate everyone and put their mind at ease that these can be very efficient tools, if used properly.

Our podcast will be geared towards helping customers understand how drone applications can help their businesses (but, if you are a fellow UAVer you are more than welcome to listen!).  We will be having different industry professionals and guests on the show.  If you are curious about how drones can impact your industry, please reach out!  We would love to hear your story.  If you want to be on the show also let us know!

Stay tuned for more DronesOnSightPodcast news!  Here’s our logo:

Google Gravity Games 2018

We just got home from North Carolina where we had the pleasure of filming the 2018 Google Gravity Games!  You’re probably asking yourself, ‘What are the Gravity Games’?  Well, it’s an educational competition to get younger generations excited about Science, sponsored by Google.

The Gravity Games are especially relevant because kids these days need more Science, Art and Music in their lives.  Funding for lots of these programs has unfortunately been cut so this kind of event is awesome at sparking creativity and helping those students achieve more than they could ever dream!  With a variety of hands on activities, science tents, music etc this event is an all day town takeover in North Carolina and we feel so blessed to be part of it again!

Below is last year’s 2017 Gravity Games video so take a peek and get excited for the 2018 video! Also, know someone who would like to enter? Check out their official NC Gravity Games website below and good luck!
