sunlit drones: Scottsdale Arizona - A Great Place To Live! - 01/16/17 06:06 AM
Scottsdale Real Estate & Information

With mild nights, sunny shopping days and plenty of western charm, Scottsdale Arizona attracts a steady stream of local and international tourists.  Self-styled “The West’s Most Western Town,” in Scottsdale you can ride horseback through the crisp desert air in the morning and browse one of the nation’s best art museums in the afternoon.  Although Scottsdale is listed among the 100 largest cities in the US, it retains a strong connection to its small-town, Western heritage.  Today, tourism and medical sciences are the two largest industries in Scottsdale.  Scottsdale has been described as both “a … (8 comments)

sunlit drones: Onwards and Upwards! - 01/10/17 10:18 AM
Many of you are aware that yesterday was test day for the FAA Part 107 "Remote Pilot Unmanned Aircraft System".
 
I'm very pleased to announce that both Suzanne and I passed with "flying colors" (pun intended).
 
The next step is to wait 48 hours to allow our results to make their way to the appropriate databases, then file the "application" for the license.  
 
Once that is filed, we will be able to print out a temporary certificate, the permanent license takes a few weeks to be issued.
 
Another big step forward for Sunlit Drones and it's pilots!
 
Onwards and upwards!

As some of you have already seen from some of our previous posts in December and earlier this month, we "see" aerial photography using drones becoming exponentially more important in marketing listings (attracting the attention of potential buyers) and in securing listings (many sellers are "demanding" this marketing enhancement).
 
This applies at ALL price … (20 comments)

sunlit drones: On August 29th 2016...Everything Changed - 01/06/17 01:12 PM
On August 29th 2016...everything changed for those who were wanting to legally fly drones for commercial purposes.
 
Of course there had been plenty of people doing it without regard to the law, some of whom went to the trouble of applying for and receiving an FAA 333 Exemption, then promptly ignored one of the stipulations in the letter granting the exemption, that if the recipient of the exemption was not a licensed pilot, then they had to have a licensed pilot present as PIC (Pilot In Command) for any commercial drone work.
 
 
 
So, anyone who continues to do commercial drone work under the … (8 comments)
