FourtyBee is a flagship publication of aerial photos, videos and stories about the evolution of drone technology, documenting ongoing land encroachments; residential and commercial development. FourtyBee captures images, videos and stories from landmarks to people, to research the history of Grand River Country from a Mohawk perspective.
“I have over a decade of Professional photography & video experience. On August 01, 2018 I received a remote pilot airman certificate with a small UAS rating for commercial drone operation under the Mohawk University Aviation Program and not under FAA or TCA and hold both general liability and drone specific insurance coverage within the Haldimand Province as a valid resident of the University.” said Benjamin Doolittle U.E. “FourtyBee was created with the intent of exploring drones and how they can assist the Mohawk world via the imagery they produce.”
Founded on December 1, 2019 by Publisher and drone Pilot Benjamin Doolittle U.E., 6th great grandson of Joseph “Thayeadanegea” Brant of the Kanien’kehá:ka.
“Flying drones within the Grand River Country airspace is done under a claim of right to peaceable possession.” says Doolittle. He hopes to build interest in community drone flight sessions, and restoring the true history of the Grand River Country.
