Looking for that new perspective?
It's all about that aerial shot....
Drone footage gives your online posting a professional, high-end touch and allows the buyer to have a better understanding of the layout of the property. As you already know drones stepped onto the real estate scene almost as soon as they hit the commercial market.
As a realtor what do I need to know?
If you would like to skip the time, effort, money, and RISK required to learn how to use operate a drone, then Dunn Aerial Media will take care of it for you. So many benefits outsourcing to a professional. Not only do we have the permits and a full understanding of the laws governing usage of aerial platforms, we also have an eye for the job. By choosing a professional the results will likely be higher quality and better editing. Also, if something should happen at the property, it falls on our insurance, not yours. We are professionals who are willing and able to do it for you at a reasonable price
As a realtor can I do the pictures myself?
Yes, but you will be operation as a commercial pilot. Rules apply when acting commercially. Here are the Rules.
As a realtor do you have the time for the following?
Study and obtain a part 107 license
Obtain airspace classifications for your area of operations
What's the penalty of using a non-licensed operator?
Liability for unauthorized operations can fall on both the pilot and who hired the pilot (Realtor).
14 CFR 1.1 defines operator as:
"Operate, with respect to aircraft, means use, cause to use or authorize to use aircraft, for the purpose (except as provided in 91.13 if this chapter) of air navigation including the piloting of aircraft with or without the right of legal control (as owner, lessee, or otherwise)."
In this case, someone who causes the operation can be liable as well. The way the civil penalty provision is written, the pilotwould only face a fine of $1,100 per violation ( as an individual acting as an airman), while the person who cause the operation could be liable for a fine of $11,000 (as an individual not acting as an airman).
So make sure your Drone Operator has an Airman of Certificate and appropriate airspace permission!!!!!!
