Drones: Flying drones legally Just Got Easier in 2016 (Everything You Need To Know)

Skype Interview: Flying Drones Legally Just Got Easier in 2016 (Everything You Need To Know) 

I had the pleasure of interviewing Scott Strimple an Emmy-award winning filmmaker, drone expert, and commercial airline pilot. He also is part of an exclusive team of aviators who help advise on drone laws for the FAA.


What’s covered in the interview:

– How to fly legally for commercial use
– How to take and pass the Small UAS Rule (Part 107) test
– How long does the process take
– How much does the process cost
– What can you and can’t you do
– Where can I fly my drone
– How can I learn how to fly or operate my drone?
– How can I repair my crashed drone

On August 29, 2016 the Small UAS Rule (Part 107) will change drone law and make it easier for many pilots.

    The FAA has an app called B4UFly that allows you to punch in your zip code (can also just read your GPS location) and will show all of the restricted airspace in your area. You can also enter other locations and future dates to pull up a list of restricted airspace and airport names.

Got something to say?
