Coffman's Certified Drone Pilots

November 8, 2018

Mike Kresser (left) and Daniel Atha (right) of Coffman's Spokane office have both passed the necessary aeronautical knowledge tests and have earned their Remote Pilot Certificate with a small UAS rating. Coffman Engineers has implemented a Drone Program to assist their Land Surveying team and has used the tool on a multitude of projects with great success. Daniel, a Professional Land Surveyor (PLS), and Mike, an Industrial Mechanical Drafter, will be able to utilize this tool to:

  • Capture images that can be used to create 3D models of projects
  • Provide geo-located, high accuracy aerial images of project sites that are current and high resolution
  • Make surveying large areas faster and with more detail available
  • Capture data from areas that are not safe to enter or accessible by personnel such as cliffs, bodies of water, etc.

Congratulations on earning your certifications!
