Drone Use Remains Important to Real Estate as Regulations Evolve
When the Federal Aviation Administration released its final rule on commercial drone use back in June, it represented a big step forward for real estate practitioners looking to put drones to work in their own business.
Today, at the 2016 Realtors® Conference and Expo in Orlando, a panel of drone experts told those in attendance that the skies ahead are set to get even clearer.
Danielle Corbett represented the FAA and spoke at length about the process for getting cleared to fly a drone for commercial purposes. She noted the difficulty getting a Section 333 waiver, a process operators undertook before more recent rules went into place, in particular the requirement for a manned pilot’s license.
The current process for earning what’s known as a “part 107 certificate,” which replaced the previous Section 333 waiver requirement, can be gotten “fairly easily” according to Corbett and does not require operators to hold a pilot’s license.
