Here at SomeDrones.com we’re all about showing the world how drones can be utilized for positive purposes, and showcasing the future of UAS technology. This week’s podcast features Taras Wankewycz, the founder and CEO of H3 Dynamics, which is a company that exemplifies both of these traits.

 

If you haven’t heard of H3 Dynamics, their Hycopter, or their DroneBox, you can read about them here. Basically, they’re a company that started out in the alternative energy field, and who are now making a major impact into the world of UAS technology.

 

During the interview, Taras discusses the early days of H3 Dynamics, how they got into the UAS industry, working across the globe, and how his company is impacting the future of UAV technology. Taras explains how the process of using hydrogen as a power source for UAVs is going to change the way they operate in the field, and how his company is taking hydrogen fuel powered robotics to even greater levels (*small spoiler alert, there’s a good chance that you could be powering your UAV with water bottles in the near future).

 

If you’re sick and tired of your 30-minute flight times because of the limitations put forth by lithium batteries, then this is the podcast for you.

Part 107 of the FAA Regulations went into effect two weeks ago, and the demand for Remote Pilot Certificates could not be higher! It seems like everybody wants a piece of the drone industry pie and the 2016 is turning out to be the year of the “Drone Rush”.

 

The FAA has done a pretty decent job of getting the information out to the general public, and making the testing process as painless as a government regulated action can be. If you want to get your Remote Pilot Certificate, there are no shortage of hoops you’ll need to jump through, but like most laws there are loopholes and workarounds that can make your life a lot easier.

 

Al Itani is an FAA approved instructor and pilot with over 40 years of flying experience. He’s currently registered as a Remote Pilot Certificate instructor, meaning he can issue you a temporary license on the spot – providing you pass the knowledge test. He’s also our guest for this week’s podcast!

 

Al talks about the pros and cons of Part 107 and how the regulations set in place by the FAA are going to move the drone industry as a whole forward. He also talks about what’s being done to enforce these new regulations, how you can take the test yourself, and what you’ll need to do in order to prepare for the test. You can visit Al’s personal website here, and check out the podcast here.
