New FAA regulations loosen drone rules for real estate agents

  • The FAA no longer requires Section 333 waivers for drones weighing less than 55 lbs.
  • Flight in the airspace classified G does not require clearance from local air traffic control.
  • Drone pilot must be at least 16 years old and pass an initial aeronautical knowledge test at an FAA-approved knowledge testing center.

Not sure whether, where and how you can use a drone for real estate photography? Some gray area of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) regulation has been cleared up thanks to Part 107 of the Federal Aviation Regulations.
