Real Estate Drone Statistics

When we first got into real estate aerial photography we scoured the web for statistics proving the value of the service. We found none. Since then we have seen a couple stats pop up here and there. However, when we looked into the stats to see where they were pulled from it seems almost as if they appeared out of thin air. Therefore, we saw a need to have statistics that we knew were accurate in order to use with customers. That was the impetus for this study.

REASONS TO HIRE A PROFESSIONAL FAA 107 CERTIFIED SUAS (DRONE) OPERATOR

So, why should your business hire a professional FAA 107 Certified sUAS (Drone) Operator to do your commercial video and photo shoots?

As a business, you may think that since you or your friend has bought a drone that you can legally perform commercial operations and capture footage for your business.

According to the FAA, this is illegal. 

Why?

FAA 14 CFR 1.1 defines operator as: If you are not licensed you become a person "acting as an operator." Additionally, the person hiring the unlicensed operator becomes the "person causing the operation." 

As a result the person "acting as an operator" is subject to up to $1,100.00 in fines. The person "causing the operation" is subject to up to $11,000.00 in fines and are subject to records requirements. This means the FAA can subpoena all of your business financial records to see if you ever hired an unlicensed operator in the past.

Protect your business, hire legal pilots. Call Drone Dogs for all your sUAS (Drone) aerial needs.
