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 this is still the federal government and the pace of implementation may be slow (several months or more). There is a lot to be done to set up new test and structure the licensure process. The nice thing is they have an infrastructure in place that already does digital tests for aeronautical knowledge, so this should help to speed up the process. If you are looking to do more than your typical sUAS operation (night flights, beyond VLOS, above 500 feet, over 55 lbs, there will still be a 333 exemption process for these more advanced operations. But most of your boiler plate operations and pre approved FAA blanket COA drones will be able to operate under the guidance and rules set forth in part 107. Cheers, and get ready to do some great flying! cc @Alan Perlman
Greetings- I have a dual-controller Inspire 1, Section 333. I am not a licensed pilot, but building my bench of PIC's to work with on commercial video assignments.

I have a great deal of aerial video experience, shooting from helicopters with the door off. Now, looking to put my Inspire 1 to work (legally- I have a lot of practice and a great demo).

Right now I am fighting tooth and nail to get my Private Pilot's License. I am two months into the training, have about 25 hours in the air and haven't solo'd yet. I am hoping to have my license by the end of March. Once I have that in hand I will be FAA compliant with a Section 333 and a tail number for my sUAV (DJI Phantom 3 Advanced). I expect that gathering my Letters of Authorization from local airport operators will be my next hurdle. I work for a an environmental firm and I think finding customers will not be as difficult as starting from scratch because we have already identified sites where our clients can use the better and more up-to-date imagery.
