CAVU believes that when people are informed and engaged, healthy societies and renewable natural resources thrive.

We do this by using our unique combination of tools: flight, film, and education, CAVU empowers people to take meaningful action on critical conservation and social justice issues in their own communities.

What’s in a Name?

In a pilot’s world, CAVU is that meteorological dream: Ceiling And Visibility Unlimited. Our founders modified the acronym to have relevance on a sociopolitical level. In a world of political discord, turbulence and social unrest: Calm Air; in a world clouded by greed, burning forests and industrial pollution: Visibility Unlimited. On all levels, CAVU is what we strive for everyday.

Founded in 2004, CAVU is a US public charity dedicated to helping solve complex problems related to the management and conservation of natural resources. Using advanced technology and an aerial platform, CAVU captures, analyzes, and shares data to inform better conservation management decisions. CAVU believes that when people are informed and engaged, healthy societies and renewable natural resources thrive.
