Our video team at Weidenhammer Creative prides themselves on staying ahead of the curve, in front of the trends, and ready to tackle any new challenge. Sometimes this comes in the form of changing rules that can potentially limit our ability. Our own Photo/Video Manager, John Guarino recently passed his Part 107 exam, granting him licensing to fly any of our drones in inventory for commercial use.
John, the original owner of Shufflebox Productions, has been flying drones since the technology first became available. He continues to practice and hone his skills on a weekly basis, and keep up with the latest news and research so that Weidenhammer Creative can always be on the forefront of the doing things the best, latest, and safest ways.
In August of 2016, the FAA began testing drone operators on their flight knowledge. Part 107 allows licensed and certified operators to fly their crafts in more areas, with less restrictions, further expanding the ability of Weidenhammer Creative’s Video services. Without a Part 107 certification, flying in certain restricted areas can be illegal and the pilot can incur fines. The new certification allows Weidenhammer Creative Video to fly their 4K drones in more places including fields, corporate buildings, campuses, facilities, and more.
