Trent Palmer - The Bush Pilot

Trent Palmer was originally a film maker that wanted to get a license to fly drones for his job. At the time, the FAA in the United States required him to first acquire his private pilot license in order to legally fly the drones he needed to for his job. So, reluctantly, he started flight training with no motivation other than that of keeping his job and flying drones. He admits in his video titled How I got into flying that he used to be afraid of heights and would begin to fear for his life anytime there was turbulence on an airline flight. However, after learning the ropes and becoming “comfortable” with in the airplane, his idea of flying changed. He quickly developed a love for aviation, particularly bush piloting.

He travels in his own plane and films vlogs. He is still pursuing his film making career using drones, and flys as a hobby. Here is one of his videos:
