For most customers, we recommend the middle option, "Blue skies preferred", which will give you the best balance of a quick flight (48 - 72 hours after the flight is scheduled depending on weather) and blue skies. This option is typically great for customers in real estate and construction. We pass along these instructions to the pilot assigned your Mission who will visit and fly your site on the soonest clear or partly cloudy day (up to 50% cloudy).
If you're not in a rush to receive your imagery and want perfect skies, then that is an option for you as well. Just be advised, this may lead to an extended turnaround for your order, depending especially on the time of year and the part of the world your property is located. Our pilot will fly as soon as the weather is no more than 10% cloudy.
If you're in a rush to receive your imagery and time is of the essence, we will send the pilot out ASAP, but the sky may be gray with up to 100% cloud coverage. For property inspection, surveys, and mapping missions, the cloudiness is a non-factor. And for the last-minute marketing need, waiting for perfect weather may not be an option.
