The truth is none of this fancy gear is any good without our amazingly talented team to operate it safely and effectively. Meet your DroneBoy Team!

Tom Comet

Chief Pilot & Founder

Since early on, Tom has always had a keen interest in aviation, innovation and robotics, so the drone/UAV world was a perfect fit. He has been piloting drones since 2012 and obtained his certification soon after that. Tom has his multiengine IFR pilot’s license which enables him to fly real airplanes planes as well which gives him a much better understanding of the “big picture” in the skies above. Can’t get the shot with a drone – how about from the plane…?  These days Tom is happiest building custom camera rigs in the shop, flying specialty UAVs, and shooting stunning photos and video from high above using whatever technology gets the job done best.

Bookkeeper & Controller

Tina is the one with the hardest job of all – compiling ALL those receipts and expenses into something that makes sense and maybe, even a profit from time to time. She writes the cheques and keeps us flying. Wow, and I thought operating a $100,000 multi-rotor camera platform in howling winds at minus 20° Celsius was hard…
