The Good Flight
Sandhills Aviation, LLC focuses on providing aviation solutions for geospatial firms. As a dedicated aviation service provider, our vast expertise and experience within the aerial survey-related industry will give you the competitive advantage your firm needs. Safety, efficiency of operations, and our focus on quality over quantity, we as an organization feel are not just important but imperative. Our analytics resources along with our unique processes and procedures ensures you get the most bang for your buck!
While working at Sandhills, I have flown across the entire country and even into Canada, while operating in just about every airspace possible. But my favorite experience had to be doing a project in Canada’s Banff national park while flying between 11,000' mountains, and then returning to land in Calgary International where I had multiple airliners including a 787 holding short waiting for me to land!

Over 50 Years of Aviation Experience
Quality Service
We pride ourselves in providing our clients with a quality product. Our management team and imaging pilots have many years of aviation experience directly related to data acquisition for geospatial firms with our well-maintained fleet of Cessna 172 and Piper Aztec aircraft. Our maintenance team has the capability to modify most fixed-wing airframes if your firm seeks alternate types of aircraft.
Flying aerial survey missions for many years beginning as a low-time pilot taught me many skills—professionalism in the workplace, teamwork, challenging flying while under demanding workload, logistics, record keeping, personal accountability, and the resourcefulness needed for working without direct supervision—that are instrumental for working at the airlines.

What Sets Us Apart from the Rest
What We Do Best
Our FAA Part 135 pilot training program has been modified and designed specifically to train our pilots to operate in a Part 91 aerial survey environment. Our network of certified flight instructors, including our chief pilot trainer holding his CFI/CFII/MEI/ATP ratings, know and understand that it takes a well-trained, qualified pilot to safely and effectively complete your projects. We go above and beyond to ensure we are the complete package, from top to bottom, to best serve our customers.
I enjoy waking up each morning and knowing that I’ll get to see some new interesting place in America that I haven't seen before.
