This business plan examines the viability of using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), otherwise known as aerial drones for asset management inspections. The UAVs are equipped with high-resolution cameras for photo and video documenting of asset conditions. The business plan includes a cost-benefit analysis for inspecting assets located in remote regions of British Columbia and Yukon and compares this rate structure with other inspection options. This plan concludes with a comprehensive financial analysis determining capital start-up costs, a breakeven analysis, a 5-year financial pro forma, and a risk assessment.
