Matt Satell owns Philly By Air, an aerial photography and video company.

“They have really become commercialized and the price point has gotten lower and lower and the quality of drones has gotten higher and higher. Now you’re allowed to use a drone to take 4k-resolution video and capture these incredible prospective that’s no one’s ever seen before,” Satell said.

With flying drones in the city of Philadelphia comes regulations.

“The biggest regulation is staying clear from the Philadelphia International Airport.  And then stadiums set up guidelines that you can’t fly near a stadium when there’s at least 30,000 people for an event. That’s the biggest regulation,” Satell said.

Philly By Air has worked on projects with colleges, construction firms and real estate agents. Satell thinks drone technology will only expand.

“Right now its aerial video and aerial photography. I think long term there is so much opportunity there. You have some of the biggest tech companies out there like Google and Amazon hoping to use drones for delivery purposes….I think the opportunity is really endless,” Satell said.
