Drone pilot can’t offer aerial mapping without NC surveyor’s license

Jun 4, 2024 | News

A federal appeals court ruled that a drone pilot in North Carolina cannot offer mapping services without a state surveyor’s license.

Michael Jones, who operates 360 Virtual Drone Services, was told by the state’s Board of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors to stop advertising and offering aerial map services due to lack of licensure. The court found that Jones’ free-speech rights were not violated by this requirement. The decision underscores the need for proper licensing to ensure accurate and reliable surveying services.
