About Guardian Aerial Patrol
At Guardian Aerial Patrol, our aircraft are of the highest quality and reliability. We use only Cessna brand aircraft that are maintained by FAA approved A&P/IA mechanics who are on site and ready to keep the planes flying for our clients. Each plane is inspected thoroughly beyond required FAA regulations to ensure their utmost reliability and safety. Each aircraft is equipped with not only the standard general aviation avionics, but they are also certificated and equipped to fly in instrument conditions. Each of our aircraft are also equipped with some of the latest in GPS technology and computer navigation aids. When these coordinates are paired with the pictures we take of all reports, ground crews spend significantly less time locating and repairing any problems.
All of our highly trained pilots are OQ certified through the NCCER and Veriforce. Guardian Aerial Patrol is proud to partner with Pipeline Testing Consortium for all DOT related drug and alcohol testing. Guardian leaves nothing to chance with safety in the training and equipping our our pilots to work for you in the most efficient manner possible.
