About Flitelab Imaging

Our core team of Mike Bayer, Mark Langille, and John Liddard bring together a diverse experienced skillset that spans photography/videography, aviation, RC, IT, UAV design/development, training, consulting, management, and related areas, giving us a very unique and broad solid professional foundation on which our services are based.  

Unlike many providers, we constructed and maintain all our own equipment, allowing us to quickly respond and adapt to situations as they arise during a project. 

We also speak on drone technology to various local groups and events, such as the recent Podcamp Halifax, and are active in promoting the safe and effective use of the technology within the Canadian UAV industry, media, and via our blog.
