Drone Services

Thin Air Drone Services is a small business in Sykesville, Maryland that delivers professional grade aerial imagery and accurate data. Every day we strive to be better and help take our clients to new heights by incorporating drone imagery and data into their projects and make their business stand out.

About Thin Air 

      We began utilizing small Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS or drones) in 2015 to capture aerial imagery for local farms around Carroll County, Maryland. Venturing deeper into the technology, we found that drones can do more than take pictures. With the help of post-processing software and lots of trial and error, we generated data that provided beneficial information for the local farms. Information such as: drainage issues, future erosion areas, water and nutrient deficiencies. 


In January, 2018 we wanted to be able to share our services with other companies and property owners.

Our pilots are Part-107 certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and have backgrounds in: remote sensing, surveying, engineering, GIS, agriculture, land use planning and more.

Residential Services

A New Angle

Whether you are buying or selling property, pictures are your best friend. Sometimes they fail to capture the full atmosphere of a property. A few pictures and a short video from above can help bring the big picture into light and make the property stand out.

Inspection & analysis

Looking Deeper

Using the latest technology, we are able to quickly and accurately provide data that used to require boots on the ground. Inspections of roofs and chimneys can now all be done safely from the ground. We perform routine flyovers for progress tracking of job sites or changes in landscape. High accuracy 3D point clouds, volume calculations, contours can be generated by a simple flight.
