  1. Hello! I’m Paul and I’ve been a commercial pilot for nearly 20 years. I got into drone flying about 5 years ago for recreational videos. Recently, I started flying drones for a real estate side hustle and need to get closer to airports. Do I need a 107 license to unlock my drone, or can I submit to unlock with my pilots license. I fly a DJI Mavic Air and a Mavic Air2. I also have a GOPRO Karma. thank you! Paul
  2. Hello UAVcoach community! I am probably as new as they come. Have flown a few hobbyist drones but that is about it. I am from Arizona by the way. A year ago I met a guy who started a drone business and it blew my mind how his company was using drones in the construction industry. I am seriously considering starting a career in the drone industry more specifically inspection and development (Ground mapping). I think I have a solid understanding of the training, certifications, software’s, and equipment required to become a qualified drone pilot in the drone inspection field but before I take a leap spending the money and time to get there I would like to better understand the job opportunities currently out there. I know there is a lot of freelance opportunities like DroneBase but what about full-time jobs with companies? I know it is a new technology that is still being adopted but are there companies out there actually hiring drone operators? Is it better to start freelance to build a portfolio before trying to get hired by a company? It would be great to hear the story of anyone who has gone through this journey and works in an inspection or development field with drones, or just some good advice on where to start. Great to meet the community!
  3. Very excited to join this drone Community.My first drone was a phantom 1. Graduated to a phantom 4 a couple years ago but have now moved more into FPV and building quads.On top of being a drone nerd, I am a car nerd. I have a Nissan 370z and when I’m not ripping a battery or building a drone I’m probably working on the Z or doing something with my car. I'm currently studying to get my Part 107 license and I'm from Boston, MA as the title suggests and would love to find other pilots in the area to fly with.Anyways, hyped to be here. Here’s a link to one of my FPV videos and some pics of my almost complete 6S build and my 370Z!Cheers from New England!
  4. I have been following and researching the sUAV/UAS/drone industry since the 333 exemption. I have been flying uav's the entire time. Due to the fact that FAA regulations impose fewer restrictions on flying a drone recreationally I've been waiting to get my commercial license (while practicing, creating a portfolio and logging hours) while the industry evolved. Now the time has come to get my license. And after following Mr. Perlman since he first started, UAV Coach was my obvious choice. My company will be based in Hawaii and we will offer drone services.
  5. Hello! My name is Jon Perkins. I am a career Firefighter in the Pacific Northwest. I am here because I am looking to both further my career with the impending introduction of drones into the fire service, as well as wanting to build a secondary business for myself doing land survey, tower inspections, or photography. At the moment, I only have a cheap $20 Toys-R-Us drone from their going out of business sale, and am still getting used to that one before I upgrade to one that will make me cry if it crashes...
  6. I am interested in technical capabilities of drones, where drone applications are going, and how regulations are trying to cope with larger, more capable drones. I am an engineering consultant specializing in safety and risk assessment for a wide variety of industries.
  7. Hello everyone! I’m still new to the droning world but I’m on my way to becoming a better drone pilot. I purchased my first drone in December 2018 and just passed my part 107 exam thanks to the help of Drone Pilot Ground school. Excited to be a part of this community. John Hale
  8. Hello all, Obviously I am in Denver, Colorado. I am a former fixed wing pilot (VFR) and have been flying sUAS for about a year as a recreational pilot and just got my Part 107 license a few weeks ago. I am flying a Mavic Pro as the primary aircraft and a couple of lesser drones for fun. I am looking for places to fly around the Denver area for training purposes. Any suggestions? I am offering aerial services to landscape photographers. I have a degree in film and ran two production companies in Colorado. I have some chops at video production, acquisition, and editing.
  9. HI - I am a member of a Search and Rescue unit in Maine, and have recently joined the York County UAS team. We have meetings about once a month. As a volunteer, I can use a privately-owned drone for SAR as long as a 107 pilot is supervising the search, but to use the County-owned drones (some of which have neat features such as FLIR cameras), I have to get a 107 license - which is how I found this site. I look forward to learning a lot here!
  10. Hi UAV Coach members, Allow me to introduce myself, and I’m Oliver McClintock. I am more of a drone freak just like you guys and take the hobby seriously. What made me create an account in this forum is because of the amount of contribution UAV Coach is doing for the drone community. Despite being a drone expert myself (this is not to boast myself, but if you want to know how my love for drone started then read this), I always like to listen to what other professionals has to say. It is right with CEO & Founder, Alan Perlman and his team including his son dubbed “Future Drone Pilot” Miles Perlman (just joking 😀). Alan, I have been reading most of your articles lately, and I must appreciate the depth of your writing. I have enjoyed your insights and would request permission to share your works on my official social channels. Not to mention, your website is much better & professional after switching to a new theme. I will actively involve in discussions of this forum and maybe try to serve useful insights or help out fellow droners with my expertise. Hope you keep this community up and running and probably we can hop on a Skype text chat if you have free time. Best Regards, Oliver McClintock
  11. Hello, I'm a photographer, videographer, and writer living in the shadow of Mt. St. Helens. 2018 was the year I got my first drone (the DJI Spark - I recently upgraded to the Mavic 2 Zoom), and over the course of the year I have slowly grown in confidence and ability. I feel that being able to capture aerial footage has opened up a new dimension to my creative work, and that it has led to the creation of some of my finest photos and videos. I publish my videos on a weekly basis on my Youtube channel: And I publish my photos and writing on a variety of topics (as well as share my videos) on my blog: I also have an instagram account where I often publish drone photos: By way of further introduction I'll leave you with one of my best aerial videos so far - I'm looking forward to participating in this community!
  12. Hi fellow pilots, I'm excited to get started with this community and get to know y'all. If the previous sentence didn't clue ya in too much, I'm from and am currently living in Texas. I flew Army helicopters for just shy of a decade and got into drone piloting because I love gadgets and technology and am embracing the chance to stay in the air while simultaneously relaxing on the ground. I got certified because I want more opportunities to fly and want to see my contributions within the drone community benefit as many walks of life as I can reach. I don't know a lot about the professional/commercial side of UAS, but am diving in as deep as I can manage. I can't wait to see where all drones are currently being used that I hadn't thought of, how to integrate drones into more areas, and how to make myself a better pilot. From hobbyists to experts, I look forward to hearing from y'all! Wishing all y'all clear skies and calm winds! Good to meet ya. ~Rob
  13. Hey everyone, my name is Cody. I live in the Chicago area. My drone is a mavic pro. My drone-goals are two pronged. I'm looking for a place to collaborate and learn from as I create a successful aerial imaging solutions company. The other prong is to share and get feedback on the cool shots I capture. My background and passion are in photography, and through photography I've found a love to fly drones. I'll attach a shot from my trip to the Ozarks! Here's my website Can anyone point me in the best direction to learn about experiences with Thumbtack and/or DroneBase missions? -Cody
  14. Hello everyone, Excited to join this community of Drone Pilots and prospective pilots like myself. I am passionate about responsible and legal drone use for commercial use and also for personal enjoyment. I am currently studying for Part 107 exam with the ultimate goal of using my commercial license to establish a successful and respectable business. I'll be monitoring this forum for tips, advice, ideas, etc., and sometimes asking questions -- maybe too many at times. I hope to become a valuable contributor. Thank you in advance for your assistance. Ray Kaforey
  15. Good Morning I'm from the twin island nation of Trinidad & Tobago. I'm 29 yrs old and i'm about to embark on the journey of opening my own business. I'm here in the hopes of getting some good advice about my drone pilot journey from the community at large. Looking into getting a Phantom 3 SE......any advice on the matter is appreciated. Love & Blessing TDP
  16. Hello everyone, I'm excited to be joining the community. I'm both new to forums and new to drones. I am not; however, new to aviation. I've got a degree in Aeronautics and worked as an A&P mechanic before I started flight instructing. I continued on that career path for a few years before I lost my medical certificate. Currently, I'm in a long and complicated paperwork battle with the FAA to get my medical reinstated... With all that being said, I'm considering a slight career change from manned aircraft to UAS. Not sure exactly what direction I want to go with UAS, but I love flying and I love aviation. I've got my 107 certificate but no drone. Any advice for a new drone pilot on where to go from here? Thanks! I'm excited to learn!
  17. Hello All, Just joined and looking forward to learning from everyone's collective experience. While new to the UAV platform, I have been a photographer for over 30 years. I passed my Part 107 back in mid-July (2017) and am just waiting on my certificate number to accelerate the start-up of a new branch to my business offerings. In the meantime, I have been flying recreationally to grow my flight experience. I joined the AMA and have been flying at their local chapter flying sites across the United States. Great organization. I own two (2) UAVs: DJI Mavic Pro and a newly acquired DJI Phantom 4 Pro. My plan is to focus on property sales media (commercial and residential real estate, luxury automobiles and watercraft, etc.). Looking forward to a very positive experience. Thanks in advance! Tom Dowling FAA Certified Remote Pilot with Small UAS Rating
  18. Hello, I just signed up for the course. I am a Computer Science faculty member working with drones. Most of my work is related to environmental science. Aside from "flight" projects I also work with autonomous surface vehicles (i.e. boats). Looking forward to learning and being part of the community. Best, George
  19. My name is Delon Anthony and I simply mad and crazy about quadcopters, Really why shouldn't you love them right ? I have a dedicated team of drone experts coming together to share their knowledge on my site. Our blog was the idea after I thought I should do something about my love for the drones. So I suggest read our site, buy a quadcopter and fulfill what you're missing in your life.

    Hello Everybody. This is my introduction. I am new to drones. But not new to small flying toys. Since I built my first small glider I have been thinking of radio controlled flight. So here I am. Bought a drone last week, and now need all the insight I can get from experience pilots. I am experienced in Thermography and wish to combine the experience with a dream. Hope we get to know each other. I am living in South Africa, East Coast. Here we have warm weather most of the time, and hot politic all the time. If you want to talk politics, I am out. If you want to talk Drones, I am in. Regards Ian for Thermax-IR
  21. Hello everyone, My name is James H. I reside in FL and I just registered and new to this group/site. I am here to learn more about the drone industry and geospatial advances and technology. I do have a B.A. in Geography and have worked in the industry for about 1.5 years of some geospatial experience. I worked for a small geospatial company as a sensor operator collecting aerial imagery on a flight crew and have processed data and maps as a GIS technician before working in the IT field now. However, I am currently not working in the industry ,but I do love what I studied in school and the opportunity to keep this going as a side hobby at minimum. I also enjoy learning about our earth and mapping and surveying targets from above. I would love to get to know many of you all in the industry and those who are hobbyists. I only have a little nano drone for now but would like to upgrade soon when finances are available. I am also interested in getting the drone license as well. Hope to meet and engage with you all soon. I am thankful to be among you great professionals and enthusiasts. Thank you, James H.
  22. I would love to get involved in this community and have read the introduction emails as well as will continue to read the material in these forums! Thank you for being around and I'm glad I joined a thriving community!
  23. Hello everyone. I've been making my way toward my Private Pilot's license here in Michigan and deciding whether to move into a commercial pilot's license or commercial uav piloting. I'm excited to start learning about the industry!
