A  few of the benefits are highlighted below:

  • You will become a part of a larger team of UAS pilots increasing your ability to earn more money as a Certified CrossFlight Pilot vs. on your own.

Financial Incentives:

The CrossFlight sales staff and our support team works closely with Certified CrossFlight Pilots to set up sales/marketing meetings and develop proposals for our core services.  A 10% commission is paid for sales based on initial gross income for the job or service. In addition, pilots are paid 40% of billable flight hours or labor rates charged to the customer. 

For example, if the pilot sells an Aerial Imaging job and also performs the mission, the pilot receives a 10% commission for selling the job, and a 40% split of flight hours billed @ $250/hr. A 10% commission is paid for any services sold by a CrossFlight pilot.

Minimum Equipment Standards & Aircraft Liability Insurance Requirements:

Pilots supply their own drone capable of autonomous mapping and need to carry aircraft liability insurance for jobs. The minimum camera quality standards vary for customers (i.e. 20 Megapixel photos and 4K, HD quality video). Some jobs require up to $2 million in Aircraft liability insurance. CrossFlight has negotiated inexpensive rates through the TALON Alliance.
