Steve Rooke, RFT, works as an Engineering Program Specialist for the FLNRORD Engineering Branch. In 2016, Steve began his adventure with the acquisition of a personal drone to create cool fishing videos. Shortly thereafter, it became clear using drones had the huge potential to support many aspects of his professional career. Steve admits that we have yet to scratch the surface of what we can use drones for. Currently, he has logged over 100 hours while conducting numerous flights such as planned missions for surveying, general observation flights and bridge inspections to name a few.
