Kristen in Michigan asks:
I was curious if anyone charges an additional fee for drone photos/video when you are in the vicinity of smaller airports. While I personally don't shoot aerials, my husband is a certified drone pilot. It doesn't happen frequently living in a rural area but occasionally he finds himself having to do a little extra legwork to make calls to airports/police stations to let them know he'll be flying in the area.
I think it makes good sense to charge extra in areas where you know you will be shooting within 5 miles of an airport or areas where you know that local police expect to be notified of a drone flight since that is going to add time to the setup and for the shoot to be legal.
If you shoot in just a handful of locations where this is required, then do it on an as-required basis or you could build that time into your price for all shoots.
What do others do in this situation?
