Gus Calderon is a commercially rated FAA-licensed pilot with a background in Geology and Environmental Science. He owns and operates IsisCopter, a small UAS manufacturing company.
His passion for aviation led Gus to start his own FAA Air Charter Operation in San Diego, California. He was granted an Air Carrier Certificate from the San Diego Flight Service District Office. After flying thousands of hours in turbine and high-performance aircraft, Gus realized that the escalating cost of aviation fuel and insurance was dimming the future of General Aviation.
Focusing his interest in aviation on aerial photography, he saw the tremendous potential for unmanned aircraft. Using the combination of compact HD video cameras and miniature flight controllers, he began to design and manufacture small Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS).
Gus founded IsisCopter, a small UAS manufacturer developing multirotor platforms and camera gimbals for aerial photography and cinematography.
His team of Naval and Mechanical Engineers provide custom solutions for aerial cinematographers as well as other applications requiring reliable multirotor platforms.
