1. Only use a registered drone photographer. In order to fly a drone for commercial purposes, the drone operators must be licensed via the FAA. Under Part 107 guidelines, the drone operator must pass a Knowledge Test in order to receive their “Remote Pilot Certificate.” How come? It is illegal to knowingly hire someone who does not have the certificate…and while unlikely, the penalty can be severe (financial and jail time). Another risk is that you may be held liable for the drone operator even you do not fly the drone yourself. To avoid these risks, and to stay on the right side of the law, always use a registered drone pilot. Plus, they are typically more professional, produce higher quality products, understand safety, and are more likely to be insured.
