  1. @Luke your the only one to get any response from this guy.
  2. @Dannø Nell don’t expect a response. No one has received a message from this Jeff. I’ve asked that this post be removed but so far no action.
  3. So I believe the site monitors should remove this post and ban this guy from future post. Apparently he has not responded to any requests. I left my info as many of you did. No response. Don’t know what his game is but he’s not looking for pilots as stated.
  4. Ok figured it out. Yes you use IACRA as before. My issue was that when I start the new application process on IACRA it automatically thinks because I have a part 61 license that it auto fills in the info for the part 61 info and asks to provide annual info pertaining to my private pilot license. Since my licenses are separate you need to do some uncomfortable things on IACRA, you tell it NO! When it asks if you have the requested part 61 info you select NO. Once you select NO to the request IACRA will then give you different options. One selection now let’s you enter your UAS test number.
  5. Correct I did not tie my part 107 Drone license to my part 61 private pilot license. Both of my license stand separate.
  6. Hi Jeff I own Eye N Sky Productions in Torrance California. I’m very active in this area mostly shooting real estate. Contact me with details please. www.eyenskyproductions.com
  7. Well where to start. Like you I also have a lifetime pilots license, which has nothing to do with my question. The fact that I said I took the 24 month recurrent 107 test means I currently have a a 107 license. Back to my original question. Now that Ive taken and passed my recurrent 107 license test. Is it the same IACRA process as when we all originally got our sUAS licenses. The reason I ask is my test proctor doesn’t know, that concerns me.
  8. So the place where I took the test couldn’t tell me what would happen next. Does my new license just come in the mail? Do I need to do anything?
  9. I should add that with my book of paperwork I carry a copy of the FAA reg that states that any person interfering with a pilot is in violation of law.
  10. I work in the South Bay Area. People are always very talkative when I’m trying to fly/work. Have had some unhappy spectators. I usually wear a high visibly vest with my company logo on the back. I wear a necklace holder with my UAS license and drone registration. I also have a notebook with all of my business docs. If anyone has a question I’m ready!
  11. Funny I started this thread a year and a half ago. These types of companies only have pilots because amatures are trying to break into the business. Since I started this thread my drone business has more work than I can handle. Why in the world would you take a job that makes no guaranty they will pay you.
  12. @Av8Chuck yes you are correct about what the Los Angeles Shariffs did. You are also correct in that they have no legal standing to over ride Federal law. So most of Southern California, including cities in Los Angeles County do not contract the Los Angeles police or shariffs departments. Many cities within Los Angeles county have their own police departments. This also means these cities do not recognize Los Angeles city rule changes. Like wise the attempts of the film industry have no control on these cities. I know because I have been to each city hall within 20 miles of the Southern Califo
  13. I was asked to be the guest speaker for all of the Southern California Tax Revenue officers at their conference. I jumped at the chance to get in front of this group to challenge them to see how crazy it is that cities believe they can put regulation on top of the FAA’s regulations. Many cities in Southern California have city regulations that require either a fee per year, fee per flight, or simple say no flight is possible in their city. Long story short. I finished with showing them the new (as of last week in my area) LAANC app on my mobile device that allowed me to plan a flight, and then
  14. @Ed O'Grady agreed. This is what happened with the 333, part 107 time period.
  15. I thought you guys would get a kick out of this. So I made a heart felt plea for answers to the FAA. Here is the email response. Not even assigned to an agent 10 months later.
  16. @Av8Chuck agreed. I have many FAA licenses and have been in aviation for 35 years. This Part 107 is a joke. The FAA doe not respond in any helpful way to pursue this as a serous business.
  17. I’ve got 3 Airspace Wavier request that are 9 mouths old. I tried sending an email to ask about the status. Got an auto response that they recieved my email. But no one responded. That was weeks ago. What would you guys suggest I do to contact a live person for help? The UAS help line is only for technical issues.
  18. Did some checking before I call (good luck right) the FAA to ask about my 9 month old airspace waiver (107.41) requests. I posted the question here “has the FAA stopped granting airspace waivers”? Someone said they were still granting waivers. The FAA granted waivers database shows that the last waiver was granted 9/11/17. That’s six months ago. Assuming people are putting in requests regularly the FAA has halted granting airspace waivers.

  21. Who, at the FAA is the best person to call for questions. I sent an email, got a automated response, but no one as contacted me from that request. It’s beem Nine months since I sent my waiver requests in. This is ridiculous.
  22. About 9 months ago I applied for three waivers in my area. About 3 weeks ago I sent in3 (one for each request) status requests for my waivers. I received an auto response at the time I sent my request acknowledging they received my emails. The FAA has not responded at all. What’s going on?
  23. @Av8Chuck I too am conflicted and confused by both DJI actions and motives. This is why I shared my story. I don’t know how many here have even heard of NODE. I did a quick search and didn’t find NODE has ever been mentioned here.
  24. The NODE group solicited me to join. It looked like a good source of info so I signed up to receive emails from them. I received an email detailing the NODE group is defeating Cities writing law to require permits to fly drones in there cities. This is good right? We don’t want cities to basically tell us to pay them eveytime we want to fly. So I sent NODE an email with two cities around me with drone permit requirements. They said “Thank you for this info it is ridiculous and we will look into it’. Here is the funny (strange) part. The lady’s name that sent the email also gave her job title w
