So what does this mean for you?
It means your venue and local authorities are more likely to cooperate with our flight operations for your event. Drone operators not flying with a Part 107 certificate may face legal consequences for doing so and are more likely to be interrogated by local citizens, venues and authorities. It also means that we are committed to flying safely. We’ve studied airspace, weather, sectional maps, and protocols for safe flights and have the knowledge necessary to operate safely.
Please note: Some venues are “banning” drones. While they cannot legally prevent a drone from flying over their property, they can prohibit drones from taking off and landing on their property. For this reason, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to fly for your event, though we will do everything we can to make it happen.
If you have questions about our drone operations, please don’t hesitate to let us know! We love talking about it!
News: Vail Resorts, Beaver Creek and The Town of Vail has decided not to allow drones at any of their mountain venues, despite case law that suggests local governments cannot make laws regarding airspace or aircraft operations, including drones. Only the FAA has the authority to regulate airspace.
