About Us

We've loved every minute of our journey

Our History

Caswell Aviation Ltd was initially formed by Grant Caswell in August 2015 as a Calgary-based aviation consulting company offering process improvement for small- and large-tiered airlines.

With over 20 years in the aviation industry as a flight dispatcher, crew scheduler, operations control duty manager at Air Canada and Westjet, commercial pilot, and airline business analyst, Grant’s education and knowledge base was best utilized in operations control centers of any sized airline.

In August 2016, however, the company re-evaluated its services and shifted its focus to unmanned air vehicles (UAV’s or drones) by offering photography, video, and mapping services utilizing DJI professional drone equipment.

Our Equipment

Caswell Aviation uses the DJI Phantom 4 Pro quadcopter model for our photography, video, and mapping/surveying.  This particular UAV has a proven track record and superior deliverables with the use of DJI Drone Deploy for mapping / surveying.
