About

Since 2008, PixAir Productions has provided cinematic quality low-altitude aerial video, in any environment you can imagine. We are licensed, insured, and approved under the FAA 333 exemption process and Certificate of Authorization. In order to ensure we ‘get the shot’ every time, we operate as a 2-man crew:

Brian Bills, Director of Flight, has over 30 years of experience flying remote-controlled planes, helicopters, and drones. Brian is also a UAV Flight Engineer for a government contractor, carries full-scale multi-engine and instrument ratings, and is certified under FAA Part 107.
