UAS FAR 107 Certification & Safety Training....Why is it important?

By: Jerry Whittaker- CEO CrossFlight Sky Solutions

Literally everyone in the world knows that Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Drones are here to stay. Drones are becoming more necessary in many industries in order for these companies to remain competitive.  From package delivery to Aerial video for marketing, movie and film making, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.  Drones are used in almost every industry in some form or fashion today. Individuals or companies can purchase a high-end drone for personal use at reasonable prices in SAMS Club, Best Buy, Walmart, and Costco for under $1500.00.  The Military and government use of drones is becoming the primary tool for surveillance and weapons deployment. 

The market for drones has turned into a multi-billion dollar industry due to this disruptive technology.  Robotics and remote controlled vehicles and mechanisms are a reality today that was not even feasible in the past decade to consumers and businesses. The federal and state regulations are becoming more and more complex due to safety and privacy concerns.

The problem with drones:  "They can do serious damage to people and property. They even can take down a commercial airliner,helicopter, airplane or injure people or property if not safely operated. Without proper training, people can get into serious trouble with state and federal laws without knowing that they are violation a Regulation or a State or Federal or International Law. Reports of drones impacting commercial aircraft operations are on the rise, with Safety implications that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) must address."

Can Drone Tower Inspections Save Time and Money? A Case Study

CrossFlight Sky Solutions is a commercial UAS Company located in South Carolina. We are experts in Tower and Aerial inspections and documentation of Tower assets and Infrastructure.

IMG_4589 (002).JPG

 

Here are a few facts concerning Tower Inspections:

Currently, tower inspections are A LONG AND LENGTHY PROCESS. A climber could take 3 -5 hours to climb and manually inspect a tower, and then another 3 - 5 hours to come down and climb it again if there are repairs that need to be made.

Tower Inspections are VERY EXPENSIVE. Generally done by climbers who charge by the hour and also charge travel time, having a tower inspected could cost up to $2,500 per tower.

Tower inspections are INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS. Climbers have to deal with high risk issues such as RF burn, wind, rain, birds, bees, as well as other unknown factors

Tower inspections are TERRIBLY DISRUPTIVE. A broadcast signal will either require transmit power reduction or be totally turned off before a tower inspection can be done, causing a disruption in service.

What can we offer

With CrossFlight, tower inspections can be done while ON-AIR AT FULL POWER, no more power reduction or turning off the signal!

With CrossFlight, tower inspections can be done DURING THE DAY, no more night tower inspections by flashlight!

With CrossFlight, tower inspections can be done with ZERO ENTRY DISRUPTIONS, we do not require entry to the compound or access area nor do we require staff members to accompany our pilots!

With CrossFlight, tower inspections can be done in HALF THE AMOUNT OF TIME with less lead time necessary for routine or emergency inspections!

With CrossFlight, tower inspections can be done at up to a 50% COST SAVINGS with Ultra HD digital documentation that can be archived!

With CrossFlight, tower inspections can be done with absolutely NO RISK to a climber or the company!

How can drones save the construction industry time and money?

A few years ago, the thought of an unmanned drone flying around a construction jobsite reporting project progress would have seemed highly unusual. In the future, this may become commonplace for all construction companies and projects in the next few years. 

 Construction site monitoring and reporting- 3D Images and measuring volumes of pits and piles. Our mapping software calculates the amount of dirt or earth to be moved in subject areas. Remote project engineers and owners can be updated with accurate images on a daily or weekly basis, saving time and money and improving the efficiency of your projects.

Construction site monitoring and reporting- 3D Images and measuring volumes of pits and piles. Our mapping software calculates the amount of dirt or earth to be moved in subject areas. Remote project engineers and owners can be updated with accurate images on a daily or weekly basis, saving time and money and improving the efficiency of your projects.

A record investment of over $1.9 billion had been invested in drone industry start-up companies by mid last year. And the market for commercial and private use drones is exploding.  Predictions of the global market for production drones for personal and commercial use is expected to grow to more than $6 billion in 2017 and more than $11.2 billion by 2020.  On construction sites, where the risk and cost of mistakes are extremely high, drones show a lot of promise for saving time and money. 

Construction projects are often extremely complex with many time-consuming tasks that can be simplified, automated and accelerated by using drones.  Here are some important ways drones can help improve jobsite efficiency, saving construction firms money:

  • 3D mapping: One of the biggest financial benefits of using drones the ability to create highly accurate 3D topography models. Drones provide a cost-effective, fast way of mapping build sites and existing facilities, while gathering geographical and topographical data in the form of photography, Lidar and video.
  • 3D mapping data can be instantly uploaded and shared with stakeholders anywhere in the world. What’s more, time is money, and 3D mapping via drones saves lots of it. Drones have been shown to cut surveying time for a 12-acre property from 100 hours down to about 2.
  • High-definition maps can be created in a fraction of the time it used to take. Drones also make it easier to survey locations that are difficult to access, reducing safety hazards. Drones are cheaper to fly than small aircraft and don’t require a pilot.
  • Improved project management, reporting and tracking:   Using 20 megapixel cameras,  drones can capture images rapidly and even stream live video to remote project managers. This footage can be uploaded automatically into cloud-based project management software, and easily shared with stakeholders regardless of location, to keep them abreast of a project’s progress. Real-time data enables faster, more informed decision-making throughout construction and the ability to mitigate delays or other issues before they cost firms money.
  • Better security and surveillance: Drones can help construction firms produce accurate surveys of progress and site inventory quickly and cost-effectively. They eliminate human error and are able to capture data faster than an inspector walking the site. Drones also enable firms to perform jobsite surveillance, not only to ensure employees aren’t wasting time or violating safety codes, but to prevent potential hazards. Photography and live footage becomes convincing in the case of thefts or misused equipment, or other security violations.
  • Effective communication on the project: Drones simplify and enhance communication with investors and stakeholders, particularly those who are not local. Aerial photography captured by drones can be streamed live and accessed by connected devices anywhere, anytime. This capability helps cut travel time and expense—investors need not travel to the job site and project managers can keep them in the loop with frequent and highly insightful video updates.
  • Improved efficiency: All of these benefits lead to increased efficiency—most likely reducing the workforce needed on a drone-assisted jobsite. Industry estimates for the current value of labor and services that may be replaced by drones is about $127.3 billion, a third of which comes from the infrastructure and construction industries. The ability of drones to collect and report on data enables you to complete projects faster at at lower cost. Faster completion means you can take on more work in the same amount of time.
  • Competitive advantage & differentiation: Construction firms who use drones can bid lower and be more competitive than firms that don’t. Drones can be used to survey jobsites before work begins—even before bidding. They provide up-to-date, detailed data, helping you bid more accurately and avoid surprise costs. Adding drone-collected photography and video footage, as well as 3-D maps created with data collected from drones, makes a lasting impression and may differentiate you from other bidders.
  • Improved marketing of your projects and win more work: Aerial images of your project will help you with marketing your projects. In fact, many projects can be monitored from start to finish and these can be condensed in 2-3 minute videos of your projects for future and prospective clients.

Can a person fly a drone or UAS at night?

  • No, operation is restricted to daylight hours and civil twilight given that the UAS has lights that can be seen from 3 statute miles away. In order to legally operate at night you must submit a waiver to the FAA

Can a person fly a UAS with FPV gear using sense and avoid technology?

  • No, sense and avoid technology does not satisfy the see and avoid requirement

Can an international student fly under Part 107?

  • Under current US Law, a US owned aircraft but flown by an international student is considered a foreign civil aircraft.  An international student must first apply with the Office of the Secretary Foreign Air Carrier Licensing Division for permission. 

Can a drone weighing more than 55 lbs begins flight indoors and then exits, does this violate part 107?

  • While outdoors the UAS is subject to the FAA's authority and having exceeded the 55 lbs restriction would be a violation.

Are drones that repeatedly enter and exit buildings, such as those for emergency services, required to follow part 107 throughout the entire procedure, or just when it is outside the building?

  • The FAA does not regulate indoor airspace, but each time the UAS exits the area it must be compliant with the appropriate laws.

What is classified as indoors?

  • A covered structure that prevents access to the national airspace system.

Who is final authority on what is considered safe, Pilot or Law enforcement?

What aircraft fall under Part 107?

  • All Civil Aircraft under 55 lbs, some public and non-public.

Multiple drones catch and release an object, is this legal?

  • As long as it has been determined prior to the flight that the maneuver will not cause an undue hazard to people or property it is legal.

Can a cluster of drones break apart and reform together using only a single PIC?

  • Cluster drones are not outlawed by the FAA, however, one PIC will need to take control of each individual group drone grouping. Should they reform into one cluster only one PIC will be needed at that time.

Can a drone be attached to a balloon to make it lighter than air?

  • Yes, but then the system would be classified as an airship and subject to  those laws including part 91.

What emergency conditions must be met for the PIC to deviate from the certification and responsibilities that are otherwise mandatory? Do the conditions vary on what clause is being waved?

  • It is as the pilot sees fit to immediately remedy the situation, a written report must be submitted to the FAA about the incident and why protocol was changed

Can I drop a glitter bomb from a drone?

  • No, the operation is considered unacceptable and potentially hazardous.

Can I use a drone to launch tennis balls for tennis practice?

  • Under strict operations, using a drone for practice can be acceptable only after making negative consequences extremely improbable.

Drones Continue to Assist Disaster Relief Areas after Hurricane Irma

Drones Continue to Assist Disaster Relief Areas after Hurricane Irma

Blog written by: Justin Clemmer, CrossFlight Pilot

Hurricane Irma brought widespread devastation to the state of Florida. Homes, businesses, roadways, and industries all across the state were impacted by the storm’s intense winds and floodwaters. In the wake of Irma, a fairly new kind of technology is being used in the relief and recovery efforts – drones. Drones are capable of producing high-quality aerial videos and pictures that are highly beneficial in operations such as search and rescue, powerline inspection, and building documentation.

 Cell Tower Inspection by commercial drones

When a wide variety of agencies sought authorization from the Federal Aviation Administration to fly drones in the affected areas, the FAA responded quickly, issuing a total of 132 airspace authorizations as of today to ensure safety in drone operation.

Irma Images IMG_4586.JPG

The Air National Guard as well as the private sector has been using drones to perform area surveys, assess disaster-stricken areas, and conduct inspections. Drones have been used by Florida Power and Light to play a significant role in helping to restore electricity for its 4.4 million customers, surveying parts of the state still not accessible by vehicles.

Irma Images IMG_4587.JPG

The stellar cooperation by local, state, and federal authorities has been cited by FPL, and this is only the beginning. In a speech given at the InterDrone conference last week, FAA Administrator Michael Huerta summed up the importance of drone operations to Irma and Harvey recovery operations saying,

“Essentially, every drone that flew meant that a traditional aircraft was not putting an additional strain on an already fragile system. I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that the hurricane response will be looked back upon as a landmark in the evolution of drone usage in this country.”

The use of drones will continue to provide much needed assistance in future disaster relief and recovery efforts. As the FAA continues to monitor the advancement of this growing drone industry, companies like CrossFlight Sky Solutions will continue to be on the cutting edge of this quickly advancing technology.

Hurricane relief and using drones for recovery efforts- they are hard to beat!

Hurricane Irma slammed into Florida and parts of Georgia this past few days. This resulted in power outages for millions of Americans and cell phone towers out of service, flooding, and massive damage to low lying areas as well as downed trees and power lines.  This resulted in lost lives and flooding of may low lying areas of Florida, Gulf coast, and South Carolina.

CrossFlight is partnered with other companies to provide experienced FAA certified drone pilots who are responding to disasters in the US.  Some of our pilots are in the disaster area working to restore power and cell phone towers to normal operations.  We provide aerial images and data for our customers to save time and money.

Drones are used for restoration of power, identifying downed power lines, inspecting property and equipment, and surveying the damaged areas from the air. Using drones we can take video images that help power line crews prioritize their work and improve safety of crews.

The key to any disaster is rapid response and recovery so people can begin to recover from the effects of a storm or natural disaster. Drones can be used to locate people who are stranded in their homes, insurance estimates of damages, video for news agencies and businesses, and insurance adjusters, and FEMA disaster relief teams.  CrossFlight's pilots are ready to respond on the ground in Florida and Georgia and South Carolina.

CrossFlight is bringing Unmanned Aircraft Systems(UAS) or Drone Technology Solutions to the Low Country

What does CrossFlight Sky Solutions do?

CrossFlight Sky Solutions is a commercial drone services company located in Bluffton SC.  We deliver high quality aerial images for businesses and government organizations. One of our products is Photogrammetry support, here is a brief description: 

What is Photogrammetry?

Photogrammetry is the science of making measurements from photographs. The input to photogrammetry is photographs, and the output is typically a map, a drawing, a measurement, or a 3D model of some real-world object or scene. Many of the maps we use today are created with from aircraft.   In Aerial Photogrammetry, the camera is mounted in an aircraft and is usually pointed vertically towards the ground. Multiple overlapping photos of the ground are taken as the aircraft flies along a flight path. The aircraft traditionally have been fixed wing manned craft but many projects now are done with drones or UAV's.  To learn more....please go to our website @ www.crossflightskysolutions.com
