At the recent REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo, experts shared their knowledge about safely using drone technology in the real estate industry. The forum included Jim Williams of the FAA’s Unmanned Aerial Systems Integration Office, Doug Trudeau, the first REALTOR® to apply for and receive a waiver allowing him to use an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and Lesley Walker, associate counsel for the National Association of REALTORS®.
You can read the complete article, “Should You Pursue Drone Technology?” in May’s issue of REALTOR® Magazine. The article addresses safety as the number one priority for drone operation. Also discussed are other aspects, such as applying for the Section 333 Exemption with the FAA to perform drone operations and liability issues.
