Flying in Hampton Roads is not so easy

As I have mentioned before, because of the local airports and military bases, around 60 percent of Hampton Roads is restricted airspace, and so legally you cannot just "take off and get photos".

For example, Oceana’s airspace covers most of Virginia Beach, from the oceanfront to almost Town Center, and a lot of that area is completely restricted (the blocks with ’0’ in them), so you’re not even allowed to take the drone up 5 ft without getting permissions.

Everyone knows that aerial photos can look truly amazing.  Getting that birds-eye view of a property or building from many different heights and angles, you can really sum up the surrounding area and landscape.

While aerial photos and videos have been used in real estate for several years now, one field that had taken a while to embrace them was construction.

A fun and challenging day shooting at the Military Aviation Museum in Virginia Beach.  The biggest issue was that inside the small metal hangar there was no GPS at all..  So I had to revert to the olden days (LOL 5 years ago) and ’fly-by-wire’ in and around the aircraft without a safety net!
It was great fun, and a very interesting place to visit.

Fourth Commercial Real Estate shoot this week.  This one was more complicated, as it was pretty much right outside Oceana Naval Air Station.  
There were jets on touch-and-go training flying really low literally overhead every minute or so, which meant communication with the Air Traffic Control was essential.  I had to bring the drone down every time the jets were near,  and take the shots quickly between passes.
