I was looking to start and grow a drone business. I found out about Jacob and enrolled in his drone business coaching program. It was totally worth it. I learned alot through his course, live group calls, and just asking him questions. He has a lot of experience and knowledge in the drone business field. He really wants you to grow and holds you accountable throughout your business journey. Not going to lie, the program is not cheap. But you have to see it as an investment into your business. I have already made my money back and then some. Highly recommend his coaching program if you’re SERIOUS about growing a drone business!

Jacob from JCL Aerial Services was amazing!! Talk about unique way to highlight your business. Jacob flys the drones effortlessly and creates some awesome footage for you to use on IG, Facebook, YouTube and the list goes on. Thank you job for talking my idea and running with it. Or should I say flying with it!!

Jacob will help you to have the right mindset to make your drone business grow and become a professional drone pilot. Thank you coach!
I love Jacob so much. He got me so much great and crucial information in a very short amount of time. He is very informative and one of the best drone operators in the US. He built a very successful drone buisness and will teach you on how he did it so you too can have your own successful drone buisness. The value you get is well worth the price, he could be charging a lot more for how much information you will recieve.

JCL Aerial services provided a lot of great insights and information into building and growing a drone business. The resources Jacob provides gives a leg up to anyone wanting to start making money flying drones.

I was struggling to motivate myself to get my Part 107 Cert. and then I met Jacob who told me he could help me get it in less than a month. Not only did I get my Part 107, I also learned how to actually start selling my services as a drone operator. For the first time ever, I actually made some money flying instead of just spending! The course was comprehensive, and explained much more than just how to film and take pictures, but how to run the business, and find new clients. I am 100% satisfied and recommend this course to anyone trying to get into this industry.

Jacob Lewis is a required resource for anyone starting in the drone industry. I already had done my own research and brought several skillsets to the table before joining his coaching program, and I still walked away learning tons of crucial skills that accelerated me to becoming a more professional drone pilot/drone business operator. I made way more progress in 2 months than I would have on my own with years of work. Gotta have a mentor to get started in any industry… and if your industry is drones, Jacob is the way to go!

JCL Aerial Services has been a game-changer for me. His videos are not only insightful but packed with a wealth of information on both the art of flying drones and the intricacies of running a business. The group discussions and calls have been invaluable, allowing me to learn from others about what strategies work and what pitfalls to avoid. Jacob truly understands that there’s an art to flying drones, but when it comes to incorporating the business side of things, he covers all aspects comprehensively. Highly recommended for anyone looking to delve deeper into the world of aerial services!

I have the pleasure of being apart of Jacob's drone coaching service. I take part in the group coaching program with a mix of other great drone pilots that are all along the same journey and it has been well worth it! I love the value he provides and how he takes the time to share his experience and recommendations on how to properly market/grow my business. He's helped get my portfolio together to point where I feel confident sharing with clients. If you are a drone pilot that is looking to grow your business, do you self a favor and join the program!

I struggled with getting my drone business off the ground. I found Jacob scrolling through Instagram and the rest is history! He has helped give my business structure and pointed me in the right direction with the knowledge he’s earned only through experience. I’ve only been in the One on One Couching Course for 2 of the 12 weeks and it has already paid for itself!If you are on the fence about using him, don’t be! Invest in your business and yourself. You won’t regret it!
Crystal K.
I went to Jacob because I wanted do something with my drone skills. Within 2 months I started a business and got my first paying job! Jacob wants you to succeed and helps and motivates you just like a coach. Without Jacob’s help I wouldn’t be here having a business or not knowing where to start. Jacob’s the man 👏🏼👏🏼
Dan B
Jacob's drone coaching program is outstanding! I started out as a mediocre hobbyist who could barely stand watching my own drone videos more than once and Jacob helped me create much more interesting videos and helped me with the business side as well. In 3 months I was able to get my first paid gig and multiple 'service for service' jobs, as well as build out my drone photography and videography portfolio and a website to get my business off the ground.

I wanted to shoot an "establishing shot" for a indie movie I'm trying to put together. I tried doing it myself but it was shakey and the resolution wasn't sufficient. I emailed Jacob and he was right on it. The shots he did look great and the price was reasonable. Highly recommended.
