  1. Over the many years that I've been training disabled veterans into becoming small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) commercial (FAA Part 107) operators with Wounded Eagle UAS, it's come to my attention that there is an amazing therapy treatment that physical therapists and those in the medical community are unaware of. A therapy treatment that strengthens/teaches eye and hand co-ordination, spacial thinking, muscle training and memory, dexterity, concentration, focus, and attention span along with employment and enhanced social enabling skills. Most all of my students have mentioned to m
  2. Asking for...a friend...this one is a doozy (Refer to Figure 20, area 1.) You're hired to inspect a group of structures that are under construction 9 statute miles (SM) south of Norfolk International airport. What's the highest you're allowed to fly without needing to ask for additional FAA permission? A) 470 ft. MSL B) 853 ft. AGL - this is what we have marked as the right answer, but I'm now questioning it C) 1,200 ft. MSL The tower in question is 453 ft. AGL. While the Part 107 regulations state a maximum altitude of 400 ft. AGL, you’re allowed to fly higher than
  3. During some tests that we carried out autonomously of the mRo navigation systems, while we flew, the wind began to blow very hard and we decided to suspend the mission and land manually because the wind was increasing more and more and the gusts were erratic and unexpected. To end the day, during the final approach the pilot made some low passes to be able to take some pictures of the plane from very close. Once the photos we achieved and we saw the circumstances complicated by the wind and the difficult landing, as fun we challenge the pilot to land with aim. Due to the strong wind
  4. RE CLASS E AIRSPACE: Over the past Labor Day weekend I flew in Provincetown, MA, or "PTOWN." Interesting drone issues on the very tip of Cape Cod. a town that swells to many thousands of day trippers and summer residents, guests far beyond its base population. PTOWN supports a very active PVC airport, called Ptown Municipal Airport, aka "MUNI." Ptown is officially in Echo Airspace, "unregulated under 700" feet but according to the sectional: down to 500 AGL. However "unregulated" aside, the double whammy is the airport proximity, as it is very close to anywhere in town. But its
  5. I thought this was an insightful piece published in Point of Beginning September issue. http://www.pobonline.com/articles/101073-guest-column-getting-started-with-drone-surveying It is definitely worth a read before charging head-first into the industry.
  6. The Oregon Department of FIsh and Wildlife has a temporary position open now based in Newport, OR. We are seeking someone with flight or building experience (FAA sUAS certification preferred) or UAS image processing and analysis experience. View the job here: ttp://www.dfw.state.or.us/hr/docs/070717.pdf We look forward to hearing from you.
  7. Hi guys, I'm a newly interested UAS drone pilot looking for a school to pick from in terms of preparing myself for the industry. Right now I am torn between UND and Oklahoma State. UND is a leader when it comes to training pilots and offers a major in UAS (however it only focuses on flying and not engineering or design in uas), they are also pretty cheap when it comes to overall cost. Oklahoma on the other hand offers a graduate program that focuses on UAS engineering. What I am torn on is the decision about whether to completely forgo my backup plan to be a professional pilot and enter the dr
  8. I've been searching for an answer to the question of operating AT a class g public airport. I see a lot of info on flying nearby, but nothing on actually operating at one. I don't seem to see any restrictions from part 107, but does anyone have any practical experience or knowledge on this subject?
  9. What is "drone"? There has been common misunderstanding of both general public and even some industry professionals about the use of the term "drone". Unfortunately this term was introduced to the public via its more negative association with military use and the global media has adopted this term - may we add incorrectly - pretty much for any remotely-controlled aircraft. If we ignore the meanings related to bees and drudges - the actual meaning related to our industry is defined as "an unmanned aircraft or ship that can navigate autonomously, without human control or beyond line of si
