“I have aviation in my blood. I’ve always liked things that fly.”

That shouldn’t come as a surprise for someone like Steve Davis, who built a career upon first being a pilot and later an air traffic controller.

But, as a retiree now, one might believe his flying days are over.

Not so.

Rather, he’s simply moved beyond traditional aviation and out on to the cusp of where the field is headed today: unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

Or, as most people know them, drones.

With that technology Davis has created a new business: Sky Shots Aerial Photography and Surveying.
