Dave A. Schuler

Director of Aerial Mapping

Dave is a drone pilot and surveying professional with over twenty years of experience. He began his career in Civil Engineering as a Surveyor and then moved into the role of a CAD Designer. Once Dave saw the value of unmanned vehicles (UAVs) entering the engineering field, he leaped at the opportunity and became a licensed pilot. Soon after, he took a job flying cell towers and then went on to work for the Department of Defense, where he trained military personnel on mission planning applications.

At KPA, Dave assists in project management and site analysis by providing our clients and internal team with video and photo updates. In addition, he executes surveying needs by utilizing Photogrammetry and Lidar drone functions which can be used to create project 3-D models and Orthomosaics photos of the project site.

Dave’s UAV pilot experience and passion for technological advancements make him an invaluable asset to our team and contribute to delivering accurate site analysis and project updates.
