Several years ago, during a training flight with one of his students, Nicholas Henderson mused on the growing relevance of "drones" in the NAS, and how they would impact the pilot industry. The two men, piloting a small helicopter over the large agricultural region of Central Washington, discussed the various agricultural applications of sUAS and the eventual automation of most pilot work loads.
Fast forward to 2016 and Nick Henderson has moved on from flight instruction and continued to watch the sUAS sector grow. Now a pilot with several thousand hours of flight experience, both in the United States and Internationally, Nick was able to see the unfolding trend as more small roles within the industry moved toward automation - and he decided to act, launching Aerial Resources Group, LLC. in Q3 of 2016.
Raised in a mining family, before becoming a pilot, Nick worked in gold mining as an exploratory drill operator. It's this connection, and familiarity, with the mining industry that has shaped his core vision - providing the best aerial support possible to the resource developers operating around the world. For 13 years Nick lived, and grew up, on one of the worlds largest Copper and Gold mining projects - the FreeportMcMoRan Grasberg Ore body in Indonesia. Nick Henderson has years of experience in the mining industry, the aviation industry, and various sectors of media production; which combine to create a truly versatile skill set applicable to whatever your project needs may be.
The team at Aerial Resources Group work closely with founder, Nicholas Henderson, to train and grow professionally and ensure that the highest standards are met and held before, during, and after our work on a project.
