Montana is Even More Stunning by Drone
We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful state like Montana. But we normally only see if from the ground. Imagine seeing all those amazing places in our state like Mystic Lake, and Hyalite Canyon, and Glacier National Park from the air.
We can thanks to The World Travel Guy. And after watching his Montana by Drone footage above, you should make a visit to his website that he describes as a world travel blog featuring beautiful destinations, new experiences, and hidden places around the world.
Since we're highlighting some great drone footage of Montana. Let's bring it back home, too. Three years ago Kjell Redal produced some terrific footage of Bozeman shot from a drone. You can watch it below.
What a fun job. Traveling around, visiting scenic lands, and capturing it all via drone. These days many people are buying drones to shoot their own footage. So that you know, there are quite a few restrictions when it comes to where you can put your drone in the sky. Here's just a few:
To fly a drone as a commercial pilot in the state of Montana (i.e. for work / business purposes) you are required to follow the requirements of the FAA’s Part 107 Small UAS Rule (Part 107), which includes passing the FAA’s Aeronautical Knowledge Test to obtain a Remote Pilot Certificate.
To fly a drone as a hobbyist in the state of Montana (i.e. for fun / pleasure) you are required to follow the FAA’s recreational model aircraft rules. One of those rules is that if your drone weighs more than 0.55 lbs (250g), you’ll need to pay $5 to get it registered over here. And there are additional rules when it comes to airspace and altitude, keeping your drone within line-of-sight while you’re flying, and more.
