Fort Myers based 3D Interspace Solutions added a drone operator to its team a few months ago due to popular demand for aerial video footage. Eighteen year old Brandon Eells is believed to be the region’s youngest fully compliant unmanned aircraft operator with the Federal Aviation Administration’s Remote Pilot Certificate. Eells provides high quality drone video that is a part of the comprehensive media and technology packages offered by 3D Interspace Solutions. The company serves a clientele of mostly realtors. Eells received his Remote Pilot Certificate last week.
Eells is an honor student attending South Fort Myers High School. He is involved with his school’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and AP Capstone programs. 3D Interspace Solutions Co-Founder Bryce Clerk said, “Brandon’s work ethic is reflected in the quality of the products he delivers. He has mastered not only the technical operation of the drone better than anyone else I have met in Fort Myers, but also has incredible video-editing skills as can be seen from his work.”
On June 21 of this year, the Federal Aviation Authority finalized a new regulatory framework for small unmanned aerial system. Titled Part 107, these new regulations effectively created a new drone certification process that covers the majority of low-risk commercial sUAS flight operations. As soon as the new FAA regulations, which prohibit operation of a drone for commercial reasons without a license, were implemented in August, Eells made it a priority to prepare for and pass the exam so he could remain compliant and continue work for 3D Interspace Solutions.
In spite of the new FAA regulations for commercial usage, not all drone operation is done legally. Not all operators make the commitment to go through the involved process to earn this certification, and not doing so is risky.
Eells explained, “Hiring a drone pilot that is not FAA compliant is costly and dangerous due to government penalties. You can rest assured that you will be doing safe and legal business with us.”
Adding drones to round out a realtor’s media package is a powerful marketing tool. Eells has seen this first hand. “The addition of aerial footage to a virtual tour is a highly effective way to market a property. Giving the customer the aerial perspective of the property undoubtedly increases sales. I have seen a house sell in a matter of days after listing the aerial video.”
Clerk concurs with this. “Brandon has done outstanding work for us. A recent video he shot and edited, per testimony of the broker, played a substantial role in a home going under contract within a week.”
