The owner, Scott Randall, is a retired U.S. Air Force Major and served 20+ years as a leader in IT. Scott also holds a FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate, along with a B.S. in Computer Science and M.S. in Computer Information Systems. Years ago, the FAA granted Scott a Section 333 Exemption. In order to become compliant, he pursued a Private Pilot's License, which he was granted by the FAA. This exemption enabled Scott to become a true pioneer in his field and allowed him to earn the trust of many past clients to include Colorado Springs Utilities, Park & Recreational Services, Colorado Department of Transportation, and USA Cycling. Scott is also the exclusive drone pilot for News Channel 13, KRDO.
Pikes Peak Aerial is one of the first fully legal commercial drone companies in the country (Section 333 Exempt), long before drone regulations were announced by the FAA. We are a state-of-the-art aerial videography & cinematography company serving Denver, Colorado Springs, Colorado and the surrounding area. We are Part 107 certified and hold many waivers to operate in the nearby restricted airspace along with a Daylight Waiver to operate at night. We are also one of only two companies in Colorado fully legal to fly over human beings at night at the time of this writing.
