Drone Licensing

Has anyone figured out the new FAA licensing requirements for commercial use of drones? The FAA site is not very clear.

It will become clear at the end of the month. I think the date is the 29th or close to that. They will be releasing everything that you will need to know. Nothing you can do at the moment though.

Thanks, I guess we will have to keep waiting.

Here you go:

FAA Part 107

The FAA Small Unmanned Aircraft Rule (Part 107) goes into effect on August 29th. It defines parameters and qualifications for commercial use of drones. Part 107 requires drone operators to attain a Remote Pilot Certificate. Part 61 Pilots with a current flight review, only need to complete the Part 107 course at faasafety.gov before applying for a remote pilot certificate with Small UAS rating. Everyone else may take this course as preparation for the required knowledge test that must be taken at an FAA testing center. The Remote Pilot - Small UAS Airman Certification Standards (FAA-S-ACS-10) is a useful starting place to find out what you need to know to pass the knowledge test.


Thank you very much Kevin.
