  1. This is my first post here so if this has been covered (I couldn't find it) then let me apologize up front. I read this article today and the thing that stands out to me is the comment about deliveries being made up to 3.5 miles. I am finishing up my certification training and it clearly states that line-of-sight must be maintained. I can see pretty well but 3.5 miles is a stretch to see a drone. I don't even think a waiver relieves a remote pilot from assuring the drone isn't e
  2. Backstory: I am trying to make some of the inspections we do inside huge water reservoirs "unmanned". Making it quicker and safer to do these inspections (i.e. we don't need to put people in the water). My original idea was to put a camera on an RC Boat (built a prototype that went well) the only down side is not being able to see the "ceiling" in detail. These ceiling are about 50-100 ft high. My next thought was a drone, have personal experience with them as a hobbyist. This way we could get up higher and see the detail that we needed, also the model I was looking into (SwellPro Spry) would
  3. Hi all, I am new to this forum, so I apologize in advance if this is off topic. This may be a local issue and outside your area of influence, but I am reaching out to groups I thought might be able and/or willing to help. I also feel this is an example of a broader concern. The East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) is a special district operating in Alameda County and Contra Costa County, California, within the East Bay area of the San Francisco Bay Area. It maintains and operates a system of regional parks which is the largest urban regional park district in the United States.
  4. Hi all,Just bought a drone? Already a professional? A drone enthusiast? Regardless, your help is needed!I am looking for drone/RPAS/UAV pilots and enthusiasts to be a part of research I am undertaking into drone flying practices in the UK.What are the aims of the project? I’m exploring what kind of airspace is produced by the interactions between regulation on the one hand and the actual experience of drone flying on the other. What do we know about the invisible politics of airspace? How important is the drone user in shaping their own flying experience? Don’t worry about answering that of co
  5. Notice was given on December 20th, 2018 of all classes (including G) of airspace given over from the FAA to National Security Interests. What does this mean for the UAV pilot? Local jurisdictions, under the direction of the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice may, at their discretion, direct local officials to enforce laws. Read and dissect the Notam. Much of what UAV pilots do under Title 48 will now fall under Title 49.
  6. Hey all, I went through DPGS last year, prior to LAANC rolling out, and now I've got a Q - If I (a 107 cert holder) am planning to fly in an area where LAANC approval is available, do I need to also call/notify nearby heliports and airstrips, or are they able to "see" my flight info from LAANC, just like a towered airport?
  7. So, I saw this article posted on a local website and caught my attention. The article was well written and spot on with all the crazy road work going on, but the photos made me cringe. Everyone take a look, and tell me if i'm not the only one that is disturbed by these!
  8. Hi guys, I need some answers, hopefully you'll be able to provide me with them! What I'm looking for is general and specific info about drone flying in Spain: 1) if you are creating commercial videos, like we would our real-estate videos, and you use drone footage provided to you by someone who flew a drone recreationally, can you legally use that footage as part of your overall video without fear of penalty? 2) What is the minimum you need to do to be legal to fly commercially (e.g. theory hours, practice hours, practical test and theory tests)? 3) Over and above number two - do you
  9. I am heading this May to Germany for a couple of weeks. I’ll be traveling to various areas of the country and taking my drone. I’m finding some specific restrictions on some of the castle websites and understand Germany has lots of others. Anyone know of any English language website links for rules and reg’s for sUAV’s rules and restrictions there?
  10. Hello, My name is Jorge, I'm Commercial Drone Pilot, working in a Telecom Company, currently flying in Georgia for Cellphone Towers inspection, most of the time using M600P with Z30 Camera. My Team is planing to start flying in Los Angeles area, and we are not sure the differences with the Regulations and requirements between Georgia and California. So I will appreciate if this community can help me out to get more detailed information about flying in Los Angeles area. By the way, I got the Part 107 Certificate back in January 2017 Thanks to DronePilot Ground School Tea
  11. My name is Alyssa, I've just been hired on as a director of operations to a company called Drone School Incorporated. My job is to get this business up and running by the end of the year so im in charge of advertising, marketing, creating a syllabus etc. My boss wants this to be a 3 hour classroom course and 2 hours of simulator time (we have the realflight drone simulator) eventually building up to use real drones for training. We dont have a minimum or maximum age for this class since for now we are only going to be using a simulator. I was an air traffic controller so i have a general i
  12. Finally! I know this is not over but it is a definite step in the right direction.
  13. Hey everyone, Hope all is well in the UAV community. This summer I will be going to Costa Rica and Cuba for a few weeks and was hoping to gain some insight on the rules and regulations of flying drones in each country. I read articles saying "You must not fly without a license. A license consists of 48 hours of theoretical training and 10 hours of practical training by schools authorized by the DGAC" for Costa Rica, but I don't know if my commercial license for the United States will cover me. Can anyone help shed light on this subject and tell me what I need to do/not do to fly in each o
  14. Hello everyone, I live in Belgium where I am involved in the UAV industry as pilot, active member of the federation of professional pilots and with a role in the organization of the European drone convention "Drone Days" in Brussels (more details on Hearing and reading about what happens around UAV's (laws, rules & regulations, mostly) in other countries is always welcome
  15. Hey all, Basic questions. I just want to double check a few things. I know we can fly without ATC permission in class G airspace. In Class E airspace with an airport with a surface level of 700ft, we do not need permission to fly to our usual 400 ft. Heres my example below. I live within Meriden Markham Airport which is Class E airspace (and takes up a lot of space surrounding), however, all below is Class G. This being said I am clear to fly where ever I please, of course keeping an eye out for any aircrafts and without hitting Class D (just has to be said ).

  17. Someone just emailed this to me from the FAA's website. Thought these guidelines were interesting:
