Spring is here, and with it will come many people trying to sell their homes. This is traditionally the time that the market is deluged with new listings.

When potential buyers and realtors are looking over the MLS properties, aerial shots of houses can tell much more about the area around the home.

A sunny day construction aerial shoot for Armada Hoffler, who have 2 projects under construction on 27th St., Virginia Beach.  

This project involved a few more hoops to jump through;  I had to apply for a special 2 year waiver from the FAA, and have to stay in contact with the tower at nearby Oceana Naval Air Station.

Accidents do happen, and if you’re flying illegally, you can expect a knock at the door.

A California man ignored the FAA’s drone regulations whilst vacationing in Las Vegas. Not only was he flying in restricted airspace without permission, but he lost control of his drone, drifting away and landing next to an active runway at Las Vegas’ main airport. 

Now he is facing nearly $20,000 in fines from the federal government.

About a year ago, I wrote a column about the number of people I have come across since I have been flying who were admittedly flying for clients without an FAA license or liability insurance.

Many people see the drone as a means to get rich quick. They buy a drone and say they’re an aerial photographer. However, once they buy the drone, they find out that there are requirements for registration, FAA testing, and licensing.

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.
