  1. Asking for...a friend...this one is a doozy (Refer to Figure 20, area 1.) You're hired to inspect a group of structures that are under construction 9 statute miles (SM) south of Norfolk International airport. What's the highest you're allowed to fly without needing to ask for additional FAA permission? A) 470 ft. MSL B) 853 ft. AGL - this is what we have marked as the right answer, but I'm now questioning it C) 1,200 ft. MSL The tower in question is 453 ft. AGL. While the Part 107 regulations state a maximum altitude of 400 ft. AGL, you’re allowed to fly higher than

  3. Good day fellow pilots. A few months ago I successfully sat for the FAA Commercial sUAS License. I Now have started a new Single Member Limited Liability Company (SMLLC) centered around drone applications. In discussions with my attorney he suggested that my FAA license (which is issued in my name) should now reflect the name of the SMLLC. The rationale being that it will be myself as the SMLLC who is piloting the drone. I understand the principle; which is that an SMLLC is designed to limit the single member's liability but to accomplish that objective, every effort shoul
  4. Set my date for Monday at 3:30 in Mesquite, TX. Excited and ready, thanks to Drone Pilot Ground School. I have to get A or my wife won’t let me come home...she sets high standards.
  5. Hi all, My name is Ilan and I'm from SkyWatch.AI , a startup focused on creating a flight safety, risk analysis, and insurance platform. In the past couple of months, we've been running our beta version within our commercial drone pilots test group and two days ago we released our official mobile app in the US, currently available for iOS and Android. We got some amazing feedback from commercial pilots that helped us improve our service and safety solutions. I invite you to try our app and if you have a comment, suggestion, question or any relevant feedback I'd be happy to hea
  6. By the end of the summer (2018), a whole crop of the first certified Part 107 pilots will be required to renew their certificates. Some thoughts? This is a huge number of remote pilots. What's the attrition rate (i.e. who WON'T renew)? How many sanctions? How any new Part 107 pilots? I liken the two-year re-certification process to a bi-annual Part 91 certificate (with, say, a part 333 ex.) but, I don't have any advice either, having gotten my Part 107 two years ago this fall. Hope you'll comment .... Thanks. vb
  7. Greetings from California! So glad I found this forum. I am new to drones. I take the sUAS airman’s knowledge exam in 3 days. Don’t own a drone yet. Preparing to start a drone based business. Probably start with real estate photography. Interested in mapping . Lots of agriculture locally. From what I have read, will probably start with a Magic Pro. Then add a Phantom 4 Pro after I get started. I have heard that Magic Pro 2 is coming out soon with improved camera and obstacle avoidance. Wondering if I should wait 2-3 months for Magic Pro 2 to be available, or buy what is on the mark

  9. Not sure if this is the right forum to post but passed my 107 today after studying through drone pilot ground school's program. The test IMO was pretty easy although some questions had multiple correct answers. The Drone Pilot Ground School was a tremendous help and their mock tests was close to a mirror image to the 107. Many thanks to a great program!
  10. Hey all, my name is Sean. I work for a national engineering firm. Over the past year I've taken the initiative to start a drone service in our firm. I am currently the only Part 107 Certified Pilot in the company. I currently fly an Inspire 2 and will be getting an Inspire 1 for thermal imaging in the near future. I am looking for any advice on streamlining FAA Airspace Authorization (understanding LAANC is not available here yet but hoping for early 2018), as a lot of our work doesn't allow me to plan as far in advance as the FAA would like. Hoping to get some advice to questions as the
  11. Hi everyone my name is Chris and I'm a 107 certified uav pilot. I've recently opened an llc and have began my journey into operating and growing a business focused on every aspect of quadcopters! Currently I'm shooting videos for car dealerships and real estate. I love flying my quadcopters and want to venture into more meaningful work with my drones. Agriculture has been in my sites for awhile now. I feel I can have a huge impact in the field (pun intended) and want to feel my business can impact the globe in vast ways. If anyone here is working directly with farmers and crop inspectors/pesti
  12. I have been searching and if I am interpreting my data correctly I found that If I am a recreational user I “can” fly at night and if I have my P107 I can not unless I get a wavier and have anti-collision lighting system visible up to 3SM. I see nothing on the FAA website that prohibits flying at night except under the Part 107 section. I went through the special rule for model aircraft and found nothing pertaining to this. How can the FAA not let trained UAS pilots fly at night but little jimmy can do whatever he wants? The AMA mentions a lighting system but that is strictly to see the
  13. It's been all over the news today and blowing up on Twitter. Figured I'd post it here. Appeals Court Strikes Down FAA Drone Registration Rule
  14. My name is Frank Cohen and I am a new member to this forum. Just passed my part 107 and waiting for my certificate. Have a P4P right now but ordered a Matrice 210 with XTR and Z30. Looking to start doing contract work as a pilot for established companies. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in flying in the Tampa, FL area.
  15. Have you flown your UAV overseas? Do you have any experiences in a foreign country? Have you looked at drone regs in other countries? Why not share some of that here with some facts for us.
  16. Hey all, Something I've been wondering about. Now that the new Part 107 rules are in effect, do companies with 333 exemptions have to file for waivers like Part 107 pilots do? If not, how long does their exemption last? And can it be renewed? Chris
  17. On Oct 3, almost 4 months ago, I sent an email to the ATL FSDO as follows. " I currently hold a Part 107 remote pilot certificate (temporary). Obviously, if I am operating a sUAV commercially I must abide by the Part 107 regulations. However, if I am operating recreationally am I bound by the hobbyist guidelines or must I always operate under the Part 107 regulations?" I never got a reply and had given up. Today I got an email saying they have been having email problems and to call if I still needed assistance. At first I thought why bother since I will most likely get a recording or n
  18. Are you thinking about becoming a commercial UAV pilot under FAA part 107? If so, UAV insurance should be a main concern of your new business. A vast majority of "standard" liability insurance policies exclude anything that has to do with aircraft. Since UAVs are under the purview of the FAA, they are considered to be aircraft by most insurers. So how do you get your new UAV operation insured? Easy, contact an aviation specific insurance broker (I happen to be one). If this sounds intimating, you are not alone. However, once you understand the basics of insuring an aircraft, you will be an avi
  19. Hi all, I'm proud (and nervous and excited) to share a new training course I've been working on. It's called Drone Pilot Ground School, and it'll soon become our flagship training course for commercial drone operators in the United States. As the FAA regulations mature and Part 107 replaces the Section 333 Exemption for the vast majority of low-risk sUAS flight operations, our team looks at Drone Pilot Ground School as a leading industry training course. Our goal? To help our students learn about sUAS operations so they can pass the Part 107 Aeronautical Knowledge Exam / Drone W
  20. So from the reading i have been doing this morning it looks as if the FAA is planning to release the finalized NPRM Part 107... On Tuesday the 21st of June. This means that tomorrow could very well change the landscape of the UAV industry in the united states. Here is one of the articles i have been perusing to find out more information: http://www.suasnews.com/2016/06/part-107-drone-operators-need-know/ For those of you pending a 333, or waiting to see this could be a very exciting day that will help to lower your barrier of entry into the commercial UAV marketplace. Keep in mind th
