Drones & UAV's
For a better understanding of how drones - also called Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or Miniature Pilotless Aircrafts - can affect us in our society, we investigated up to date FAA data. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) forecasts that the number of drones flying in the skies will reach around 7 million by the year 2020. Having said that the number of drones sold by the years 2017, 2019, 2018 and 2020 might reach about 2.3 million, 2.9 million, 3.5 million and 4.3 million respectively. Such estimates are for drones practiced by hobbyists or what's also called model aircraft. The number for non-model, industrial aircraft or commercial drone is far lesser. FAA predicts that these kinds of commercial drones will have higher earnings, with 0.6 million and 2.5 million for…

Recruiting Women To Become Female Drone Pilots

Recruiting Women To Become Female Drone Pilots

Drones & UAV Training
The drone industry is growing significantly as many people are adopting the technology for various purposes. Some people fly drones for leisure such as performing activities like racing. Drone technology also helps to improve the film industry. However, of significant concern is the fact that there are very few female drone pilots compared to their male counterparts. Women hold less than 4% of certificates compared to 96% drone certification for males in the US.

For instance, “Women Who Drone” is an online community that seeks to expand the visibility of female drone pilots in different ways. The total for women involved in the drone…

2018 Updates To FAA Drone Regulations

2018 Updates To FAA Drone Regulations

FAA Regulations
Drone regulation is an ever-evolving subject. For every new opportunity and piece of tech that comes along, there are questions over correct practice and uniformity in laws.

At the same time, bodies such as the ULC attempt to challenge current legislation over privacy concerns. What is clear and legal today may, at some point in the future, alter and become illegal. That is why it is important that all drone owners and operators keep up with current rules, trends, and amendments. The more that drone operators know, the easier it is to stay compliant and work without concerns. There are three major factors to consider right now with the state…

The Importance Of Having Drone Insurance

The Importance Of Having Drone Insurance

Drones & UAV's
Some people see drones as nothing more than a bit of fun. They are toys and tools that provide people with entertainment and some aerial footage. The problem with this idea is that it overlooks the development of these drones as large, dangerous pieces that can fall from the sky. This is a heavy piece of machinery with a series of rotors – 4 spinning blades on the fastest quadcopters – that can do some damage. There are some important areas of insurance coverage to look at here. They include personal injury, property, privacy torts and general liability insurance.  Check with your own insurance provider to see if your current policies cover your drone. The FAA has guidelines in place to stop drone users from getting into too much trouble…
