Drone services company Helios Visions has released its complimentary “Guide to Flying Drones in Chicago,” which was created to inform drone professionals on the best practices for safely and legally operating drones in Chicagoland.
To create the guide, Helios Visions retained the services of Dr. Ryan Gibson, an Adjunct Associate Professor at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University with an extensive federal government career.
“It’s a rewarding experience operating a drone, and the guide organizes key regulations for those considering flight operations in Chicagoland,” Gibson says.
The guide covers essentials such as registering drones with the FAA, obtaining a Part 107 commercial drone operator license from the FAA, and options for government entities wishing to operate as a public aircraft operation in Illinois. It also covers the conditions for operating drones for both hobbyist drone operators and commercial drone operations and the regulations and requirements for each operator. Additionally, the drone guide covers the most common Part 107 FAA waivers available, including operating from a moving vehicle or aircraft, twilight and nighttime operations, visual line of sight aircraft operation, operating drones over people, and operation of multiple drones.
“Helios Visions is dedicated to the safe and legal operation of drones and we wanted to ensure this information serves as a resource to all interested in operating drones,” says Helios Visions co-founder, Ted Parisot.
