  • Inspired by the bold ideas of drones’ potential uses, especially on agriculture.
  • Joined up with a drone manufacturer and licensed operator and began working on precision agriculture uses for drones and aerial imagery.


  • Conducted field trials using a single fixed-wing drone team that collected aerial imagery in Minnesota and South Dakota and collected over 60,000 acres of data.
  • Evaluated the data from all of the aerial imagery we collected and compared it with harvest and grower data throughout the season.


  • Established Aerial Precision Imagery, LLC after realizing that even though drone usage was the current trend, it was very inefficient.
  • API decided to leverage our 30 plus years of aviation experience by using a manned aircraft with a customized and integrated camera system to make it cost effective.


  • We operate manned aircraft throughout the Midwest.
  • We offer the highest available resolution in the market.
