The owner of OverSite Drones, Galen Leeds, has over 20 years of experience in the construction industry. Additionally, he also worked for many years as a photographer. He is our chief pilot, and can answer all your questions, since he is intimately familiar with the technologies we are using, and best practices on job sites.

OverSite Drones uses only FAA licensed pilots and drones that are registered for commercial use. We fly safely and responsibly, however, should the unthinkable happen, any time we are in the air flying for our clients, your project is insured for between $1,000,000 to $10,000,000 against any damage we may cause. (Insurance levels depend upon the needs of our clients.)

We use the latest technology and software in order to give our clients the deliverables that they desire.

OverSite Drones’ primary offices are in Tomales, California, a short distance east of Petaluma. This gives us access to the entire North Bay Area, including Santa Rosa, Novato, West Marin, and Sebastopol, as well as most areas of Marin, Napa and Sonoma Counties. We regularly find ourselves in the Sea Ranch and Gualala areas. If you’re wondering if we can provide mapping services to your project, it’s as simple as sending us an email.


Whether you choose OverSite, or another operator, always make sure to hire FAA certified pilots. Failure to do so, can result in the FAA issuing fines of up to $11,000 to the individual or company that hires an unlicensed pilot. An unlicensed pilot only faces an $1,100 fine.
