UAS (Drone) Program Approved for Night Flights

Heapy’s UAS (Unmanned Aerial System) flight team has been approved by the FAA as one of only a few in the country for night-time flights. Our Certified Thermography staff can readily take advantage of this night-flight approval since infrared scanning of a building’s envelope and roof is most effective when the sun is not warming the building! The UAS uses high-definition video and thermographic cameras to pinpoint energy leaks, rooftop damage, deteriorating facades, safety issues and other potential envelope problems.

Another benefit for Owners, as well as Thermographers, is the use of UAS/Drones to gather data, which dramatically reduces the need to walk entire rooftops, rappel down buildings or need extensive scaffolding. That saves time and money. It also has the ability to capture better building data.
