Panton: We’re Transforming The Gig Economy With Drones

The gig economy has enabled people to diversify and supplement their streams of income. For those who aren’t familiar with the term, the gig economy refers to the concept of individuals acting on a self employed basis to perform various jobs and tasks (aka freelancer or independent contractor). Over the years, the gig economy has made huge strides with the emergence of giant platforms such as Uber, Instacart, and Lyft. Additionally, barriers such as having a skill set in design, writing, or coding has no longer been an issue. The bare minimum that most people need these days is a driver’s license, a smartphone, and a car to get started on making extra pocket money on the side. That is about to change.


An Overview of Panton’s Drone Program – Roofing Photos

We are pioneering an entire new sector within the gig economy. Now anyone who has access to a drone (or will) can make additional side income. Our tasks are simple- take photos of house roofs (given our flight pattern). Here are some highlights as to what pilots are to expect:

  • $50.00 per house (15-20 minute completion time)
  • All jobs completed and submitted by Friday will be paid the following Friday (weekly pay)
  • Pilots operate as an independent subcontractor

Who Should Fly For Panton?

Based on the requirements, even a high schooler could fly for us. One of the goals for this platform is to further enable financial independence for everyone. Like ridesharing, you can work when you want, where you want. In addition, the work is more fun than driving a car, easy to learn, and less time consuming.

So what if you don’t have a drone and want to fly? If you think about it, a few jobs from us would pay it off – not a bad deal.
