The Alberta Sky is the limit

Our drone fleet enables filming from perspectives that were previously impossible or extremely costly. With one helicopter shoot day costing upwards of $10,000, beautiful and stable aerial imagery can now be achieved at a small fraction of the cost. Additionally, with hundreds of hours of flight experience, our pilots guarantee the optimal shot will be achieved on each flight. We have the experience and knowledge to capture amazing footage regardless of purpose or location. As a subsidiary of Gruvpix Productions, we can edit your amazing footage into a compelling final product of any length. We service Edmonton, Calgary and surrounding areas in Alberta.


Alberta Drone Pilots was officially formed in 2014 as a subsidiary of Gruvpix Inc., an established video production company based out of Edmonton Alberta. While initially intended to supplement corporate video productions, we found that aerial imaging had a demand all its own. We set out to establish Alberta Drone Pilots to reach new markets and to increase awareness for this amazing technology. With hundreds of hours of flight time, ground school training and Transport Canada certification, we are the most experienced certified drone operators in Alberta.
