Hi, my name is Andre' Messina from New Orleans, La. I recently graduated from film school and am interested in flying my drone commercially as either an independent contractor or my own company. I am trying to figure out where to begin. Should I look at getting my sport pilot license? If so does anyone have a recommendations for schools? My other question would be I know it takes a long time to get the exemption, should I apply before obtaining a pilot license or wait until after I have the license? Thanks for any feedback. I really appreciate the help. Andre'
