     In the first 2-hour segment, we will learn about what is a drone and its uses in the four different environments of water, land, air and space and their relationship to real estate appraisers.  We will then learn about the three types of drones being used for aerial inspections in urban, suburban and rural environments.  Next, we will discuss the various real estate businesses that are currently using drones to benefit their practices.  These will include appraisers, brokers, insurance agents, attorneys, developers, architects, homeowners, tax assessors and others.  Finally, we will cover how drones are impacting real estate from the redevelopment of urban environments to the delivery of packages. 



    In this 2-hour segment we’ll begin by discussing the public issues of privacy and security and how they are currently affecting aerial inspections.  We will learn how to navigate the Federal Aviation Administration’s website and how to determine if you are using your drone for commercial business.  Next, we will learn how to register a drone and the necessary steps required to become a certified remote pilot.  Finally, we will discuss the Federal Code of Regulations for Aviation and the rules that apply directly to aerial inspections.  This is a fast-paced webinar that attendees will know that whether they plan on using a drone themselves or hiring someone to do it for them they will understand the necessary steps to be able to incorporate aerial inspections into their practices.



    In this 3-hour segment, we will discuss a typical field operation.  Attendees will learn how to set up a landing and take-off zone and how to develop flight patterns to keep people and property safe.  We will also discuss the operational, environmental and regulatory issues involved in determining the risk mitigation procedures necessary for a safe operation.  Finally, we will discuss the unanticipated hazards that can occur when performing aerial inspections.  We will cover inspections of residential, commercial, industrial and large acreage properties. In addition we will discuss how shots needed on site can aid in training.  We will also learn how to use pre-programming to aid in inspection and review remedial training notes from the field.  Finally, we will learn the correct questions to ask when hiring a pilot.
