Greg Smith on the “Swiss Army Knife”

August 18, 2016

Senior Marketing Manager Greg Smith describes how he depends on Bill Rolland to deliver quality video regardless of the venue: live events, on-location customer testimonials, demos, and more.

DoT and FAA has issued relaxed rules for commercial drone

June 28, 2016

Really excited to read last week that the DoT and FAA has issued relaxed rules for commercial drone use (https://www.faa.gov/news/press_releases/news_story.cfm?newsId=20515). By no means have all the problems – and potential problems – been sorted out. But greater clarity helps those of us who use drones get closer to solving those issues. Some top provisions:

• Operator must be 16 years and older with a remote pilot certificate (with a small UAS rating, testing available at an FAA Knowledge Testing Center – we have one right here in Auburn, CA)

• Operate no higher than 400 feet

• Daylight hours only, must always be in sight of the operator

Something interesting for privacy advocates: flights are prohibited over unprotected persons who are not a part of your drone activities – to a large degree, operators will still have to use equal parts common sense and human decency😉
