ISight RPV Services today announces it has acquired the Fargo-based drone company, Flight Pros. Known for specializing in aerial site mapping, 3D modeling and high-definition aerial photography and videography, Flight Pros adds to the line-up of services ISight offers.
“After seeing the professional, high-quality work that Flight Pros produces, it made perfect sense for Joey to join our team,” said ISight CEO Tommy Kenville. “This expansion of our business services only continues to ready us for beyond visual line of sight operations.”
Founded by Joey Schmit in 2015, Flight Pros started small by mapping golf courses. The self-taught drone pilot, former teacher enjoys using drones to solve problems. He began his current career by building his own drone and outfitting it with a GoPro. He has steadily expanded operations by utilizing dozens of drones and sensors.
“I just love the idea of using drones to do things that previously were not possible,” said Schmit. “My ability to provide certified thermography, mapping and volumetrics creates an incredible synergy with the work ISight is already doing in the energy sector.”
With this acquisition, ISight will soon have offices in Grand Forks, Fargo and Watford City.
