According to Cody Retlich, he has two passions: drones and helping people.
Retlich became professionally involved with drones while studying Entrepreneurship at UW-Whitewater. During that time, he worked for a firm that used drones to conduct surveys of agricultural land. The technology fascinated him, and he began to explore its many commercial possibilities.
Convinced that the demand for drones would eventually become significant, Retlich launched his first business, Midwest Aerial Productions (MAP) in 2016. The company connects freelance drone pilots with jobs. Ad agencies, property management and construction companies are just a few of the industries that require drone work. Today, MAP has more than 5,550 pilots in their network.
