It wasn’t that long ago that Terry Kilby could fly a drone on jobs without much worry about paperwork or federal interference. But, though federal rules bring legitimacy, they also come with headaches.
Kilby and wife Belinda now have to file several days’ notice when their drone photography outfit Elevated Element is booked for jobs, and both have had to work toward pilot’s licenses, and not just for drones.
“It’s a full-on pilot license,” Terry Kilby said. “It’s a pilot license for a plane. There’s no pilot license for a drone.”
The couple showed off some of what they’ve done and talked about what’s next during an event atop AOL’s offices in Brewers Hill on Monday night. The event was part of Baltimore Innovation Week.
