In December 2020, the FAA published a new set of proposed drone rules, and while there was a loosening of some rules, some more restrictive rules were added.
Although not due to be fully implemented until 2023, the new rules come into effect this year.
There is some loosening of rules, notably for commercial drone pilots ability to fly over people and at night, but there are also more restrictive rules involving a new system called Remote ID - drone tracking measures aimed at addressing security and safety issues raised by drones.
How drones are being adapted to the self distancing world
While there are many changes currently going on in the people world, there have also been many adaptations in the world of drones.
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.
Air Aspects photos of an old Virginia tide mill were used for an interesting article in the House and Home magazine. Itâ€™s great seeing my work in print again. No matter how many times I see them, it never gets old.
On December 31, 2019, the FAA published a proposal outlining new rules enabling a system to track all drone flights in the USA.
The proposal, released in the interest of public safety and awareness, has a few items that have many drone pilots very unhappy and some on the verge of leaving the hobby.
Itâ€™s that time of year again, and, as in most recent years, drones are sure to be one of the hottest selling items in the stores and online.
However, before you rush out to get one for yourself or a friend or child, there are some things you need to know about owning drones.
1. Where does the owner live - Many larger drones available now have what is called geofencing in them. Basically they have GPS, and will not fly anywhere there is a no-fly zone in operation.
If the person youâ€™re buying a drone for lives within 30 miles of Washington DC for example, they are going to have a tough time trying to fly, even on their own property as the drone may not even power up.
When selling a property, you want it to look its best in photos, regardless of when it may actually sell.
Something that people will notice is if there is an obvious time of year that the photos were taken, and if that time was a while ago, it can create a negative image of the property.
One of the main goals in photographing a home for a listing is to make the rooms look as large and impersonal as possible.
Here are the best ways to prepare your house for the best photographs possible.
Because aerial photography is such a relatively new field, clients and homeowners often arenâ€™t sure how to prepare a property for an aerial shoot.
Here are 10 things you can do to guarantee the best possible aerial imaging of a property.
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 theyâ€™re an aerial photographer. However, once they buy the drone, they find out that there are requirements for registration, FAA testing, and licensing.
