The name of the company is Fly4Me. My guest is Adam Kersnowski, co-founder and CEO of Fly4Me. Adam along with partner Dmitry Sharshunskiy came up with the idea of creating a drone for hire concept when they began using drones in their respective construction and energy companies. Drones worked so well for their needs, that they saw the opportunity to create a business, which may set a high bar for drone-for-hire service companies. Adam is here to talk about Fly4Me and how customers can tap into the services and how drone pilots can earn an income.
