Partner Spotlight
Aerial Photographs and Video for Improving Your Business

Sky G Aerial Imaging captures stunning high quality aerial photos and video from new perspectives to engage and connect with your target audience or team.

Since the FAA changed it’s regulations last summer for unmanned aerial systems (UAS), or drones, Sky G Aerial Imaging has been helping differentiate Northeast Georgia real estate listings with a new standard of dramatic aerial imaging that highlights the unique aspects of a property and its surroundings. Remote-piloted drones are also the perfect solution for monitoring construction sites, inspecting roofs, utilities and infrastructure, and recording special moments of a wedding or sports event, as well as increasing the safety of our first responders during search and rescue missions.

If you are interested in getting to know more about drones and how they can benefit your business and community, visit our website at, or call the owner and Chief Pilot, Michael Gonyea, at 770-630-1633.
