  1. Particularly I’m referring to Brunswick here (BXM). Not sure if that helps...
  2. So, I’m pretty sure I’m conducting flights appropriately but need some peace of mind. Many of our airports here in Maine are shown on the sectional charts as Class E Airspace with a 700’AGL floor(Class G sfc). As a 107 certified pilot I’m clear to go fly within those airspace’s without notifying anyone correct? The reason I ask is because I saw last week one of the airports had posted on their Facebook page to remind drone users they had to notify the airport within 24hrs of any flight with 5nm of the airport. I have a feeling they are really speaking to hobbyists and modelers, but just wanted to make sure I wasn’t doing something wrong as a certified pilot.
  3. @embayweather Id like to thank you for bringing some light to a topic like this. Im sure there are more people out there with disabilities specific to mobility issues that can benefit from drones. I used to be a land surveyor after I graduated from college until I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis which effected my legs and took away my ability to walk for many months. I was unable to continue to carrying heavy equipment and walking long distances anymore. This happened 9 years ago at the age of 26 (wow, it seems like yesterday ) Im now 35 years old and do design drafting for a civil engineering company. Last fall I went to the company and presented a business plan on how we could implement drones into our workflow to help us with mapping for our civil projects. We bought into the workflow this summer and now im able to get back to "surveying" without having to do all the walking one would typically have to for topographic mapping. Using drones has brought me back closer to the field where I originally started before MS Im certain more and more disabled persons can and will benefit from drones in the future!
  4. Great, thanks for clearing that up!
  5. Question...If you have 3 pilots in a company that will be flying one UAV, who do you register it under? It seems that registration is specific to a specific pilot under their license. Would you have your drone marked with 3 different registration numbers for when each is using it? Im kinda confused. Ryan
  6. Last fall I took on the opportunity to develop a UAV program within the civil department of my company. I chose to use Drone Pilot Ground School as a teaching aid in guiding me through and studying for the part 107 exam. After successfully passing the exam with the help and great courses put on by Alan, I moved forward with a business plan and finding vendors for our company to utilize. Fast forward to now, we are receiving our DJI Matrice 210 this week and are excited to get started in implementing this program into the company. Being able to attend this conference would greatly help further my knowledge within the UAV community and help push this program ahead with success. It would be great to make connections with some of the professionals that are leading this movement within the civil infrastructure industry and learn how I can impact our business here in the northeast. A trip out to this conference would be a new experience for myself and I can’t imagine a better opportunity to be a sponge for learning techniques practiced by professionals in our industry. Thank you. Ryan?
  7. i was looking to get some references or any information on 3DR and the service they offer in getting companies drone programs up and running. Anyone using their tech support or site scan software? Any good or bad vibes? Thanks in advance!
  8. Hey all - My name is Ryan and I’m new to the drone community here in the northeast. Looking to dive into this industry and see how we can incorporate it into our civil/survey workflow. Kudos to Alan and the course curriculum he tought. Passed the Part 107 Test yesterday with a 95 ?? Ryan B
