So yes my name is Jeff I'm located on the beautiful Valley Isle of Maui in Hawaii if you're anywhere near my location and want to go flying let me know. I'm always flying whether commercial or on my time.

Hi Jeff, since you are from Maui maybe you might be able to answer some questions?
I am a drone Pilot in Canada (we run an aerial Photography company). I am interested in while on vacation flying on the island to get some footage. I have a Canadian SFOC (special flight operations certificate ) but understand that in the US you need to write a test? Also register your drone. I am wondering if you may have a flight map outlining areas that are acceptable to fly? or website that i may enquire about all of the above.
Any other thoughts would be a big help.
Cheers,
Brad

Would love to connect, Jeff. We are in HI a few times each year, a couple of our guys returned a short time ago from a DJI production that was a very full six days between Maui, Kauai, O'ahu and Big Island. Particularly on Maui having a local flying partner that knows the lay of the land and airspace makes the experience that much better. Safe flying and I hope our paths can cross on the island! Safe flying!

Hey Brad,

I can help answer some of those questions. I moved back here to Maui after being on Oahu for the past 10 years. In reference to your SFOC, you are correct, if you want to pursue commercial purposes, you need to be Part 107 certified as well as registering your drone. Reference here. For maps I use this. Most of Maui is Class G airspace, so you can fly most places except near the airpots. Let me know if you have any questions!

Hi Brenn, are you into meeting up and perhaps fling together in Maui anytime from the 15-26 of March? We are considering lugging our inspire 2 with X5s down to Maui. Do you have any locations you like to or would recommend flying?
Cheers

Aloha! Check out the Hawaii Drone Photography page if you haven't already, that's the best spot to meet us locals.
