  • 1. July 30, 2015 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Tom Kane 844-359-7591 LOCAL FLORIDA MAN RECEIVES FAA APPROVAL AND 333 EXEMPTION STATUS TO LEGALLY OPERATE AERIAL DRONES FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES ST. AUGUSTINE, FL – St. Augustine resident, Tom Kane and his business, SKY 1 Imaging, LLC have received FAA approval and 333 Exemption flight status to legally operate aerial drones, or UAS (unmanned aerial systems) for commercial purposes. The FAA only grants the 333 Exemptions on a case-by-case basis. Per FAA.gov – “By law, any aircraft operation in the national airspace requires a certificated and registered aircraft, a licensed pilot, and operational approval.” “It’s a big deal – it’s huge” said, Kane…who received his private pilot’s license in 1995. SKY 1 Imaging is now able to offer aerial photography and video services legally to Florida businesses and residents including; real estate, corporate events, weddings, insurance applications, retail, and home inspections, just to name a few. Only a handful of Florida businesses have been granted the FAA 333 Exemption. “Flying drones is much different than taking pictures from an airplane or helicopter. Most importantly, drone photography has become affordable for almost everyone. Additionally, a drone is able to fly in places that an airplane or helicopter could never reach”, said Kane. While flying drones might be more affordable and have easier access than traditional aircraft, UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) pilots, or drone pilots, still must follow very specific laws. Kane added, “In addition to the FAA specific flight regulations, the state of Florida has enacted very strict drone laws”. Tom Kane is very well versed on the newly enacted Florida drone laws and the specific FAA drone regulations. Because of Kane’s media experience, he is an ideal person to interview for a local network news piece on drones. He makes for a great guest on talk-radio shows, local or national network TV programs, or is ideal for a newspaper or magazine feature article on drones. Tom Kane is also a very experienced media professional. Other projects have led him to be interviewed multiple times on The O’Reilly Factor, CNN, FOX News, MSNBC – and all major network affiliates. Kane has also been featured on The Dr. Phil Show in Hollywood and has been a guest on hundreds of talk-radio shows throughout the United States and Canada.
