Our UAS Program

Since we purchased our first drone in 2017, we have grown the program to include a three drones, four sensors, and are equipped to produce a variety of imagery products.

Our goal is to serve the Tribe as best as we are able, not to impede the progress of other programs. Fees are flexible and evaluated on a case by case basis.

This will allow you to fill out a form with all the information we need to get a flight done. Once submitted, our staff will get an alert that we have a new request!


Please refer to James Twoteeth (jtwoteeth@cdatribe.org) as your point of contact for all UAS specific questions.

Here are some examples of our current drone flights:

Circling Raven Symetra Tour 2021
Pumpkin Patch 2021
