The Symetric crew connected with drone software company Flyte Technologies from across the pond. Flyte was created out of a passion for innovative modern mapping solutions towards meaningful understanding of airspace with complexities removed. At present, pilots operating worldwide use Flyte to create intuitive and comprehensive flight reports and operational management documenting their work. Brandon from our team recently had the opportunity to link up with the team based out of Belfast, Northern Ireland to talk about how drone technology is completely changing the dynamic of online content. Here's a little preview of the conversation...
Brandon Sloan and Joe Jones head up drone operations in their Canadian-based marketing and web design business Symetric Productions. The company, located in St. Catherines, Ontario, was founded 15 years ago by Joe as a web design and marketing agency. They began their drone operations in the last three years and according to Brandon, are now seeing this side of the business rapidly grow:
"By bringing aerial capabilities into the fold, drone operations have evolved from being a marketing add-on, to often the main service we provide our clients. It’s differentiated us from our competition, and allowed us to meet our client’s evolving needs."
Operations are carried out by lead-pilot and VP of Sales and Marketing Joe. Both Brandon and Joe utilise Flyte’s web app to assess and manage their drone operations. Most jobs are located within southern Ontario’s Golden Horseshoe; a region which has a high density of airports and airfields varying in size and traffic volume. Most significant is Toronto Pearson International Airport; the busiest in Canada and 33rd busiest globally.
