NEW YORK (PRWEB) May 06, 2018
Brand-News-Team, Inc., a digital PR and visual branding company, now has Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) authorization to fly an aerial drone within sections of controlled airspace from Maine to New Jersey.
“We are very pleased to have gained access to operate within five miles of airports in federally controlled airspace. This gives us a multitude of opportunities to help clients raise their visibility with breathtaking drone content,” said Roger Rosenbaum, president of Brand-News-Team.
The company is aiming high and plans on working with a wide-range of clients in tourism, hospitality, construction, economic development, farming, technology, real estate and entertainment.
Brand-News-Team recently announced their expanded access to the national airspace this week while presenting a seminar on drone safety at the I Love New York Tourism Empire State Conference cohosted by the New York State Tourist Industry Association.
The FAA has complex regulations in place to separate and protect manned aircraft from drone traffic sharing the national airspace. “Our FAA-certified drone pilots comply with these regulations and can fly within five miles airports in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Vermont,” said Rosenbaum.
The company previously gained authorizations to fly in Silicon Valley. "We like to say we can fly legally in Tech Valley in New York and Silicon Valley in California," said Rosenbaum
Brand-News-Team filed these requests to fly in federally controlled airspace by applying on the FAA’s online portal and often waiting more than 90 days for approval. “We fly with caution and creativity. Our safety-focused mindset helps reduce risks and increase our ability to produce creative content from the sky,” said Rosenbaum, who is also an FAA-certified 14 CFR 107 remote pilot in command.
The PR and video-focused firm also has an FAA waiver to fly at night in some locations.
