Tate McCurdy and Mark Belizario arrive at Aerodrome’s port for unmanned aerial vehicles in Eldorado Valley ready to film. The two men work for Verascan, which specializes in filming and geological surveying through the use of drones.
This day, McCurdy and Belizario are making a video using their drone to advertise Aerodrome’s flying space to recreational and commercial flyers. They take out their drone, a white DJI Inspire with a built-in high-tech camera.
The drone takes off, its propellers swirling, unbothered by the gusty winds. The drone soars through the port, its camera documenting the flight.
“Fly through those obstacles,” McCurdy says to Belizario, referring to the obstacle course set up every Saturday for hobbyists to race their drones. “Then get a good shot of those mountains.”
