Jeff gets his FAA Drone Certification!

Third Wave Digital is proud to announce that our Digital Media Editor Jeff Passmore has acquired FAA Certification to operate a drone for commercial use. The test, administered by the FAA, consisted of 60 randomly selected multiple choice questions. Applicants were given 2 hours to complete it and required over a 70% to pass. The questions covered a wide range of topics to ensure operators are competent to fly a drone safely. The test covered subjects such as operating airspace maps, aeronautical weather, airspace types, and airport and military operations.

Third Wave Digital is pleased to be able to offer professional, FAA certified, drone operations as part of our video production capabilities.  This service allows us to provide our customers with footage that tells their story from a unique perspective that isn’t possible with conventional equipment. Recent clients to take advantage of our aerial acquisition capabilities include colleges and universities, manufacturers, city governments, even car dealerships. Our clients love the footage as they feel it takes their video production to a new, professional level.  And they appreciate the level of safety and professionalism Jeff brings when operating a drone on their behalf. 

When asked what his favorite part about flying a drone was, Jeff answered, “Drones allow me to capture exceptions shots that can’t be achieved any other way.” Throughout this process he has learned a lot of lessons about flying. For him, the biggest take away has been the many precautions required or safe operations. While drones are a great tool and safety is very important, Jeff will also be the first to tell you, “Drones are just flat out fun to fly!”
