Mountain Rd., Torrington, CT

You would not be exaggerating if you said this is one Connecticut company whose business is up in the air. Appearing on the Friday, Jan. 8 edition of Front and Center, Mike Gearin and David J. Weiner talked about their business, Photoflight Aerial Media. The Manchester-based firm uses drones to capture photography. Companies from real estate to television programs have used the business.

"We are the only company in the nation that holds an authorization to operate a drone within the metro New York area," said Gearin, co-founder and CEO of Photoflight.

The company had to undergo rigorous testing, including approval from the Federal Aviation Administration, before launching its venture.

"We take compliance and safety very, very seriously," added Weiner, who is Director, Business Development for the firm.

Weiner stated that the company is undertaking "very exciting growth," including the video-taping of a sequence for the network-television program "America's Got Talent."
