As drone capabilities keep improving, more and more people want to use them. However, without proper certifications, you may not be able to use drones in certain airspaces. These rules and regulations fall under the jurisdiction of the FAA. But what is the FAA? What are these rules and how can you get video and images without FAA certifications?
Let’s start with what the FAA is. The FAA, or Federal Aviation Administration, is responsible for the rules and regulations of civil aviation. This means that for all things dealing with the professional use of drones, you must go through the FAA. They handle the safety regulations, airspace and air traffic management, commercial space regulation, as well as various other air administration roles.
For safety regulations, the FAA certifies and sets the standards of manufacturing, operating, and maintaining drones. This means that in order to use a drone for commercial or professional use, it must follow the exact safety regulations. For airspace and air traffic management, the FAA draws lines for where airspace is navigable for drone use. Therefore, without certain permissions and certifications, it is impossible to get certain shots with drone technology. The FAA has also set rules for drones used in commercial space transportation.
