To legally begin offering commercial drone inspection services and aerial photography and video services, several State and Federal regulations and requirements must be followed and adhered to.
For these reasons, there are not many home inspection companies in existence today that are both qualified AND FAA part 107 certificated, and able to legally perform commercial drone inspections in the United States.
This is why we at SPS Inspections are so very proud to begin offering our clients the option of drone inspections and unmanned aerial vehicle photography services!
Requirements to Offer Inspection Services With an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle – the FAA requires:
- You must pass the federal drone license test, which is given only at a certified and accredited testing center (find a faa part 107 test center near me).
- You must register your small uas with the faa before beginning operating the drone commercially (faa drone registration information and login).
- You must display the drone registration number on your uas (unmanned aircraft system, aka a drone).
- You must adhere to all local and federal flight regulations while operating the drone.
