Young Aviation Professional Award 2019 finalist, Jack Scott
I’m Jack. I’m from NZ drones. NZ drones is an aerial drone company that specializes in aerial cinematography, aerial mapping and asset inspections. Being a CAA Part 102 operator allows us to do operations from
flying over people, flying over property flying over 400 feet and flying at
night time; and also within controlled airspace. Being nominated for the award is a great accolade to have as it shows that my company is professional
and we’ve got all the right safety systems in place and that we can run a
safe operation. Personally it means that I put in a whole lot of effort – it’s all
paid off. To be nominated I was pretty blown away. It was great feeling getting recognised by the CAA and the greater
aviation community so it’s pretty cool.
