I just got FAA approval to fly a drone for commercial use in Ridgecrest California near the China Lake Naval Weapons Center.
Still working on the NO FLY zone near Meadows Field in Bakersfield as there are many houses in that zone and drone use for roof inspections has become my first choice.
In my opinion, it’s safer with no worries about falling off the roof, or damaging the roof tiles or shingles. It provides easier access to chimney’s and (no second ladder on the roof thing) and electrical masts, and offers better photo angles for your client. Plus you can easily add current ( as opposed to goggle maps) overall property photos as an added value and usually all within 30 minutes.
All you need is an FAA registered drone, FAA commercial drone pilot license, insurance, and the B4UFLY app, and time for FAA approvals…is it worth it? I think so…
What are your guys thoughts?
