Yes we do! We offer discounts for long-term contracts, and for prepayment of services.

The weather is always a factor when scheduling a drone flight. When weather conditions are not good enough to fly, we will work with you to reschedule the flight within 48 hours.

During the preflight planning process, we research your job location to see if there are any flight restrictions. If the location is in controlled airspace, we will request an authorization with the FAA for your flight.

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 👏🏼👏🏼
Rainey S.
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.
Katie R.
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.
Kelsie R.
Video was very smooth, clear, and fun. Great aerial view! Perfect for weddings, churches, pinics and more!

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!
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.
Elisa D.
Jacob, the owner of JCL Aerial Services is very skilled at his profession. He made several important suggestions for our Self Storage Facility. We are excited to utilize the Drone film he created. Jacob is kind, and fun to work with. It was a pleasure and we have already referred other business owners to him.
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.

We were in the market for an aerial photograph for our home and found exactly what we were looking for! This website is user friendly.
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!
Dwellings L.
Jacob is very easy to work with and truly delivers quality service and product. We have incorporated his aerial shots into our website, promotion videos and more! Highly recommend!

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.
Sam C.
Best drone pilot! So knowledgeable and patient. 10/10 does recommend!!
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!
Travis R.
I really enjoyed being apart of this group for 3 months, and feel like I learned a lot in a short period of time.I had only been flying for about a month before deciding to join, and by the conclusion of the coaching period I had a fully operational LLC, a few jobs under my belt and and understanding of what it takes to succeed in this industry.I would recommend anyone that needs guidance on how to run a successful drone business to check out the Drone Coach for some great insight!DNVR Drone LLC (@DNVR_Drone)
Derek W.

Daisy M.
Had a great experience with Jacob! He made it a seamless process to chat through what I needed in drone aerial photos and site images as well! Highly recommended - the photos were perfect for what I needed!
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!
Taulman F.
Highly recommend! Jacob captured beautiful aerial footage and photos of our drive-thru Christmas lights Display. Professional quality, rapid turnaround, and great customer service. We will return to JCL Aerial Services for all future needs. Thank you for the time and effort you put into our project Jacob, it is much appreciated.

I was greatly pleased with the video photography and pursuit of my somewhat difficult request to incorporate just the correct accompanying music for me.

Andrew T.
From start to finish, JCL took care of us and listened carefully to make sure they captured the footage we needed with excellence. Will definitely be using them again.
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!

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!

I recently had the pleasure of working with JCL Aerial Services for an aerial photography shoot for Calcaterra Apartments, and I couldn't be more impressed with their professionalism, expertise, and the quality of their work.From the initial consultation to the final delivery of the photographs, JCL Aerial Services exceeded all expectations. Their team demonstrated a deep understanding of aerial photography techniques, ensuring that every shot captured the unique beauty and features of Calcaterra Apartments from the sky.Not only was the team highly skilled, but they were also incredibly friendly and easy to work with. They listened attentively to my specific requirements and preferences, and they went above and beyond to accommodate them, resulting in stunning photographs that perfectly showcased the property. Moreover, the turnaround time was remarkable.I highly recommend JCL Aerial Services to anyone in need of professional aerial photography services.

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.
Allyson T.
If you require aerial video or photography services, look no further! Jacob is really great to work with, listens to client needs, and helps to create a finished product that is highly professional. I definitely would recommend JCL Aerial Services to help capture a unique perspective for your special occasion, business, or event.
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.
Glenn B.

Friendly, responsive, and professional, I would highly recommend JCL for any drone photo needs you might have. After reaching out to numerous companies to no avail, JCL responded quickly and was able to meet all of our requests.
