The need to hire professionals

When you determine the use of a drone best fits your needs, remember this, choose your provider wisely or you may find your assets in jeopardy.

There are more than 400,000 registered drones currently in the United States and the industry is expected to generate 70,000 jobs and more than $13 billion in revenue over the next three years. Currently, the FAA requires commercial drone operators to hold pilot certificates and obtain certain mandatory exemptions in writing before launching flying-for-pay operations; a process that can take more than eight months.

Here’s the thing; for every FAA-approved commercial drone operator out there, there’s probably at least a few dozen operators who ignore the rules, violate federal air regulations and carry no liability insurance because all of that gets in the way of their pursuit of a fast buck. Clients who fail to properly vet their proposed vendor can share the liability if something goes wrong; an event that can become quite costly quite quickly.

Lone Star Drones LLC is an FAA-authorized and approved Section 333 exemption holder – meaning we have complied with all current regulatory mandates to operate drones commercially – whose pilots all hold FAA pilot certificates with years of flight experience, a thorough knowledge of all federal air regulations and broad experience operating drones. Lone Star Drones LLC carries no less than $1 million in liability insurance per drone and we believe that safety always trumps convenience. We are dedicated to exceeding our clients’ expectations in both meeting their missions and operating legally, safely and professionally at all times. We are constantly looking for ways to improve and we also believe we set the bar for what clients expect from a professional, commercial drone operator; pursuing the “fast buck” is not part of our game plan…it never will be, either.
