Without certification, it’s illegal to fly drones commercially. For a photographer or video production company to offer drone photos and videos to their clients, certification is required.
Flying drones is also more complicated than you might think. Because they are unmanned aircraft, FAA regulations apply. Drone pilots must know how to:
- Read weather patterns
- Determine different airspace classifications
- Read sectional maps
- Determine temporary airspace restrictions
- Obtain authorization to fly in airspace other than Class G
- Use team members to increase safety
- Research NOTAMs (Notice to Airmen) regarding potential hazards along their flight routes
- File NOTAMs to alert other pilots of our drone activity
- File flight plans
- Maintain flight logs and equipment documents
In addition, drone operations and equipment are insured under a $2m sUAS / Drone Liability Insurance Policy provided by SkyVuze for the following operations: Aerial Photography, Mapping, Agriculture, Deliveries, Inspections, Surveillance, 3D Rendering, Government / Law Enforcement, Media, Energy, Maintenance, Cinematography.
