Drones can provide several unique benefits to architects throughout the building/remodeling process. They are especially useful for capturing the scope of buildings and highlighting features which are not viewable at street level, inspecting hazardous spaces, gathering site data, capturing views to optimize the design, and shooting aerial photos and videos.
Experienced architects know how valuable the change in perspective provided by a drone can be in creating cost effective building plans. Architects interested in using a drone to enhance their plans must comply with FAA Regulations. The FAA requires all commercial drone pilots obtain a Remote Pilot in Command Certificate and register any drone over 0.55lbs.
Steps to Obtain a Remote Pilot In Command Certificate
Step 1: Pay the $5 fee and register any aircraft that weighs more than 0.55lbs.
Step 2: Pass the $150 Small UAS Remote Pilot Exam – exam prep is available here.
Step 3: Pass a TSA background check
Step 4: File FAA Form 8710-13
