How a Drone U memberahip helped long-time member Jake sign MTV Productions as a client in less than a year
Dear Friend,I want to tell you a story that has become one of the most popular ones in our community.
- It's a story about MTV drone pilot, Jake, and one you're likely to find uncannily similar to your life.
- Early in his career as as drone pilot, Jake had tried everything he could think of to grow and was wracking his brain because of the constant dead ends and slammed doors.
- But he had a dream to make a name for himself in the industry and was (still is) a fighter. There was no way he was going to give up.
- You see, he didn't want to JUST be a drone pilot. He wanted to work with A-list clients; and he was committed to achieving those goals.
- BUT, he was struggling mightily with achieving those goals.
One year after signing up with Drone U and I'm on set with a Bynum and Murray production for MTV. The Drone U content and member access with other members has been invaluable to the growth of my business Vertical Drones. Thanks Drone U! Jake
Hello! I am Paul Aitken.
As one of the cofounders of Drone U let me be the first to say "Thanks!" for checking us out.
Like you, I'm very passionate about the drone industry and work hard each day to make it a better industry for all of us.
Through my own work as a drone pilot, Drone U Chief instructor, author of Livin the Drone Life and co-host of the AskDrone U Podcast, I get the thrill of helping thousands of budding and experienced pilots become the best versions of themselves possible.
My own personal drone services business (because we teach from experience here at Drone U) specializes in aerial photography, videography, and drone mapping.
My past clients include the likes of Marriott Hotels and Resorts, Don Imus, Boarders Magazine, Keller Williams, and Coldwell Banker.
It’s fair to say that I am passionate about design, travel, and photography.
But what I am truly obsessed with is teaching others how to safely and profitably fly their drone.
In fact, for the most part, I have put my own successful drone business on the back-burner so that I can concentrate on Drone U members.
This exciting journey started back in 2014, I was headed out of state to train as a drone pilot and talking to the Bald Bureau (Tim & Rob) as I was doing some SEO work for their previous company.
That’s when a lightbulb went on in my buddy Tim’s head.
“Hey, maybe we could create an online training site and teach people how to fly drones?”
We could combine our love of serving people, help them grow a business, and create a community where people could help and encourage each other.
This is the (VERY) short version, but, the rest, as they say, is history. Drone U has since trained more than 18,000 drone pilots and counting.
Read on to learn more about Drone U and how we strive to make you the best drone pilot you can possibly be...
