Our goal is to assist in safe and legal drone flight operations and to help improve your flight skills. This site is a coordinated effort of drone operators, professional photographers, and active airplane pilots.
Drone Mastery was developed by a professional photographer and airline pilot, and is a growing collaboration among fellow photographers, videographers and drone operators. While there are already a number of great sites to find information on safe and legal drone operations, most, if not all, do not incorporate professional photographers and professional pilots. Combining these assets will help drive safer operations along with improving your photos and cinematography.
