Wings Of Mercy Drone Search And Rescue

Wings of Mercy Drone Search and Rescue (SAR) is a grassroots volunteer group which uses cutting-edge drone technology to help rural and remote communities locate men, women and children who have gone missing. Wings Of Mercy enlists the assistance of drone operators across North America to work with families as well as law enforcement and search and rescue teams to quickly provide aerial images from dense and challenging areas where it is too risky for humans to tread. Wings of Mercy provides training for drone operators and free analysis of drone images using state-of-the art software. Most importantly, Wings Of Mercy supports families after formal search and rescue operations have been exhausted, continuing to provide them support and hope in their search for loved ones.

Wings Of Mercy is a network consisting of experienced all-volunteer Multi-Rotor (drone/UAS) pilots who donate their time, expertise and services at no cost to families for aerial Search and Rescue (SAR) operations, whether requested by a family member, private party or public agency. Wings Of Mercy is an all volunteer SAR organization. Our members are dedicated to searching for missing persons.

With new innovation in drone technology, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have become a viable option for search and rescue missions (SAR). UAVs and drones provide an aerial vantage point for locating missing people, helping first responders assess a situation and key insights to providing the best recovery services. UAVs save considerable cost over manned aircraft and can be deployed in a matter of minutes.
