Hello Keith,

Yes. If you use the drone for commercial applications such as inspecting roofs you are required to have the FAA UAS Remote Pilot Certification. You can find all the info online. No need to call and wait on hold.

Feel free to contact me if I may be of further assistance.

All the best…
