The time has arrived for us to launch our shiny new Marketplace for anyone wanting to hire a drone operator - anywhere in New Zealand!
Our commercial drone operators from the old airshare Directory are now on the Marketplace, with the chance to update their listings to include more information about their business, plus images and video they have shot for their clients.
And for the first time, clients will be able to add reviews to operator listings. Listings will be searchable by reviews and number of flights logged via airshare, as well as by location and categories. Visitors can also search by Part 102 Certification, which provides some incentive for anyone considering going to the next level with their drone business.
As well as Marketplace going live, we will also be rolling out an advertising campaign from September 1 to bring potential customers into the site to find drone operators for their projects.
We have been working on the new functionality for some time and are excited to see it all up and running. We appreciate your feedback - and your patience, as we iron out any final wrinkles.
In the process of creating the Marketplace functionality and integrating it with the pilot registration and log in area of the site, we have actually rebuilt the entire airshare site, so again, please be patient if some things look a little different than before - we are doing our best to deliver you a continuously improving site.
