Daylight Waiver performance based standards

Daylight Waiver

5 performance bases standards need to be addressed when applying for daylight waiver.    The article in Women and Drones provides helpful tips on these standards.

  1.  Method for remote pilot to maintain visual line of sight during darkness.
  2.  Provide method for remote pilot to see and avoid other aircraft, people on the ground, and avoid ground bases structures and objects during darkness
  3.  Provide a method remote pilot will be able to continuously know and determine position, altitude, attitude, and movement of their small unmanned aircraft.
  4. Provide a method to assure all required persons participating in the small unmanned aircraft operation have knowledge to recognize and overcome visual illusions caused by darkness, and understand physiological conditions which may degrade night vision.
  5. Provide a method to increase conspicuity of the small unmanned aircraft to be seen at a distance of at least 3 statute miles unless a system is in place that can avoid all non-participating aircraft.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding the application process.

Drones – Understanding the New Airport UAS Facility Maps

New Airport UAS Facility Maps provide useful information for commercial UAS pilots.  

The FAA held a seminar to discuss the newly released Airport UAS Facility Maps.  The seminar was presented by UAS leader, Jeff Riolo.  Jeff Riolo is with Empower UAV.   He is very knowledgeable in current FAA information, rules and regulations.   These maps provide valuable information for a commercial UAS pilot.  Maximum altitudes,  Airport Date and Temporary Flight Restrictions and much more..

There are various ways to get to the Airport UAS Facility Maps … this link works best.  This link will allow the full use of the information available.

The maps are used to provide information regarding maximum altitude, airport data and temporary flight restrictions.   They are an aid used by FAA Part 107 processors to help with the airspace authorization process.  The FAA released the first of several facility maps April 27, 2017.  Additional maps will be published every 56 days through the end of the year.  If you would like to see the chart of release dates. 56-day aeronautical chart production schedule.

Even though the maps show the areas and altitudes near airports, commercial drone pilots will still need to file for an authorization through the FAA portal.   These maps will help with authorization process.  They are to be used for planning and information only. (more…)

Rosetta Community Sports Park

On The Go Video.biz was there for the grand opening of the Rosetta Canyon Community Sports Park in Lake Elsinore.

My drone photo is on the cover of the Lake Elsinore Chamber Magazine.  It is a beautiful park with five tournament fields.  This park was designed to standards that will attract regional and national tournaments.  Lake Elsinore is growing in such positive ways.   Take a look at the video and see for yourself.

 

 

Ancient America

Ancient America: Fifty Archaeological Sites to See for Yourself   My aerial photographs have been published in the newly released book “Ancient America” by Kenneth L Feder.

I have always said that the s’UAS offers a new perspective for photographs.  The photos of the intaglios are the perfect example.   I suggest you pick up a copy of Ancient America from Amazon.com.    I think Kenneth L. Feder did a great job detailing America’s ancient past and he includes helpful bullet points for traveling to the areas.      The aerial shots and information about the Blythe Intaglios can be found on pages 146 – 150.

It nice meeting up with Kenneth Feder and I am glad to be a part of the publication.   I’m looking forward to more of his books and working together in the future.

When you fly your drone anywhere in the nation’s airspace, you automatically become part of the U.S. aviation system. Under the law, your drone is an aircraft.  Drone operators are pilots and must fly responsibly and safely.   We have gone above and beyond to stay informed of the current safety regulations.

STEM / STEAM

Computer programming

STEM / STEAM …. A brighter future.

First…   What is it?  STEM is Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.   STEAM add “ART”.   I believe that art is an important part to the equation and drones are the perfect tool for the job.

The knowledge and enthusiasm that the students show towards new technology is amazing!   To start the program the students are handed a box of parts.   They build the drone, computer program the RC communication, make sure it can fly, and use Tinkercad to build replacement parts.Amazon
