Brief History of AirShark
Learn How AirShark Became a Leading Drone Service Provider
AirShark was formed in Vermont by Ian Ray (CTO) and Jon Budreski (Business Dir.) in 2014 when the founders saw the potential of UAVs to change the way data collection is done.
Hobby and consumer drones prove to be lacking and AirShark creates its first customized UAV platform.
First-Movers in a New Industry
AirShark was the first UAV company to receive a FAA 333 Exemption in Vermont.
Joining the Media Wing Family
As an effort to increase capability and expand operations AirShark and Media Wing formed a unique partnership that ultimately led to the acquisition of AirShark under the wings of Media Wing.
FAA Expands Rules
Long awaited, the FAA released their Part 107 ruling for commercial drone operators allowing AirShark to fly UAV platforms under more defined and flexible terms. All AirShark UAV pilots are licensed under these rules.
