Tim Pearson & Fireman In The Sky

Welcome!

I’d like to highlight and comment on drones, flight software, aerial photography, and aerial (and traditional) videography. I’ll also share videos I’ve uploaded to my YouTube Channels.  One is my personal YouTube Channel where I keep some drone clips and lots of family videos.  The other one is my Fireman In The Sky Channel.  It’s brand new as of March 2017.  I’ll be providing more information as things develop.

In the mean time, please scroll on down to my Blog Section, where you’ll find all the most current content.  I also have some contact information further down.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy!
