      I feel that way every year when a big yellow spray plane clears my house by about 30 feet. If he can go between houses on his approach he is about roof high. Next year I video it and ask some questions.

      Unless something has changed recently that would be 100% illegal

      I just purchased a rarely used Mavic Pro and a fly-more kit. I will take the online course to prepare for testing this winter and then hopefully do some commercial stuff in 2020.

      I operated a Mavic Pro Premium and damn do they go fast! I was following US Hwy 83 at 43mph (with a tailwind). If it wasn't for the video monitor the naked eye couldn't pick up the drone. The Premium model is nearly silent, too.

      There is really good money to be made with drones if you can get the right contracts

      This is very true depending on what you can offer. The real estate market is pretty saturated, and a lot of agents have their own drones and are flying them illegally. I would like to get into wind tower inspections, but there is a lot more to it than just snapping some pictures. A lot of the drone companies that are doing tower (cell, wind, etc.) inspections have people to conduct the post analysis and final reports. That is where the experience comes in.

      What types of contracts are you referring to?

      Oil field is starting to be a huge drone user. Many ways they are being used in the patch

As far as that airport part is concerned, there are all kinds of restrictions, so I can't answer that. There are certain protocols that must be followed when flying within a certain distance of an airport, and each one can be different especially if there are special temporary restrictions in place.
      As a pilot these drones scare me a bit. A little drone could take down a single engine plane in a hurry. Probably more so the 15% of people that lack common sense.
