  1. To maintain VLOS, if I have position / anti-collision lights ( 3 status miles visible) on during daylight hours, is this a legal way to maintain VLOS over greater distances? Thank you in advance for any help.
  2. Thank you for the correction. I may have not heard correctly.
  3. It takes about 2 weeks to “transfer”. I got an email when the temporary was ready to print. The instructor told me I could fly 107 with the certificate that they issued right at the testing place.
  4. Okay I have about 10 flights under my belt. Flying a dji spark so it is easy. I’m practicing practicing practicing so I can take some great pics and videos on vacations and around home. I’ve been reading a little about part 107 and some of the prep manuals show many examples of situations that apply more to small manned aircraft and many sections go into deep deep details of aviation again that sounds like smalll manned aircraft required knowledge. Is part 107 all about that stuff or is it more about flight planning, safety , regulations, etc. ? Is there a good book or ebook that lets you know what you need to learn to achieve the part 107 license ? Thank you
  5. I've used Airmap once, it was a bit confusing. I need to work with it more. Always interested in others experience. May I suggest you contact Airmap and let them know it would be good to add a feature for multiple drones in one submission or a way to to have multiple submissions open at the same time? Companies are always looking for feedback to make their products the most useful to their customers.
  6. I have always been interested in remote controlled flying, but, did not get into it until now. I am new to flying. For Christmas, my daughter bought a DJI Spark for me. I am interested in learning to fly the right way, safety and within the rules. I live close to the PVD Airport in Warwick, RI. Any fellow or sister fliers in the areas feel free to contact me. My other interest is sail boat racing. Just club racing on Narragansett Bay. My current goal is to master the DJI Spark so I can take video and photos for this summer's club races for fun (not commercially). The biggest challenge will be landing on a boat and getting over my fears of flying over water and having an equipment failure. :-( Looking forward to learning more.
