We are very happy with the footage that JCL Aerial Services provided us for one of our local roofing clients. Jacob was friendly, attentive to detail, prompt to communicate, and definitely knows his stuff when it comes to operating the drone. We'll definitely be using his services again!
Response from the owner: Thank you very much Andrew. It is a pleasure working with you.
Sean S.
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.
Response from the owner: I appreciate it Sean!

I explained the types of photos I was looking for and Jacob did a wonderful job capturing them. He was responsive, professional and the work was excellent. Those photos, are not only treasured photos of our family home, but will also be used in a variety of ways with business and projects that I have. Thank you JCL Aerial Services. Excellent job!
Response from the owner: Thanks Elisa!

joel T.
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!
Response from the owner: Thank you so much Joel!!!

Highly recommend! I've hired JCL to capture drone footage for my own client video projects. Jacob is a true professional: he knows the equipment in and out, keeps tabs on all the regulations and most importantly, has the technical skill to capture great shots.
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.
Response from the owner: Thanks Dan, you're awesome!
Thrasher L.
Jacob was very professional and responsive to our questions and needs and provided a well made video for our marketing needs.
Response from the owner: Thank you very much!
Up Above Video S.
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!
Response from the owner: Thanks so much!

EXCELLENT SERVICE and product! JCL has done an outstanding job on two drone/still shot projects for us and we could not have asked for more. Jacob has been very professional to work with - from pricing and scheduling to editing and delivery. It's a pleasure to work with JCL - they're real professionals at every point.
Response from the owner: Thanks so much! It was great working with you and ABS Services!

jakebslayin
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.
Response from the owner: Thank you Jake!
Scott W.
Working with JCL Aerial was wonderful! The product is superior and Jacob is so easy to work with. Great communication, flexible scheduling, and great videos and pictures of our project. I can't wait to work with him again!
Response from the owner: Thanks Scott! It was great working with you and Clear Creek!
Fred S.
We used JCL for four locations. Jacob was very flexible with respect to scheduling due to weather issues. Final product was terrific. Highly recommend.
Nicole W.
Great, efficient service! Jacob was in constant communication making sure everything was perfect, I needed some content for a job in Park City UT and he provided a great drone pilot -Roy- and awesome pricing for some RAW footage needed! All the angles and shots you can imagine! Next day delivery for the files. I would work again 100%. Thank you Jacob and team, from all the Allsite Structure Rentals team!
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Nicole!

I've used Jacob's fine services twice now to help me inspect difficult to access roofs. His very professional work has been a valuable asset to me and my building inspection clients and it is a pleasure having him on my team.

A great investment to gain a 3 month course to gain detail insight to find the right tools, tips, ask questions and personal experience from Jacobs insight starting a drone business. Thank you
Response from the owner: Thank you John!
Josiah M.
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!
Response from the owner: Thanks Josiah!
Randy B.
Excellent customer service. Quality work and quality photos. Jacob is professional and respectful. Highly recommended to anyone.
Avery L.
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.
Response from the owner: Thanks Avery!!
John L.
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.
Response from the owner: Thank you John!
Eric M.
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!
Response from the owner: Thank you Eric, it's been a blast having you in the program!
Frederick S.
We used JCL for four locations. Jacob was very flexible with respect to scheduling due to weather issues. Final product was terrific. Highly recommend.

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 👏🏼👏🏼
Response from the owner: Thank you Crystal!
