Intro: new to UAV coach but flying for over 4 years

Recommended Posts

Hi fellow UAV Coach members,

I want to introduce myself, although I'm new to UAV coach I've been flying UAVs for over 4 years. I have flown the DJI phantom 2, inspire 1, Mavic 2 zoom as well as Yuneec Q500 and Typhoon H. I fly as both a hobbyist as well as in a commercial capacity for real estate and weddings among other sectors and I’m  FAA 107 certified for close to 2 years. Currently refreshing Part 107 regulations to renew my certification.

I look forward to learn from other pilots as well as sharing my own flying experiences that can benefit the pilots in this group.

I have a desire to help our search and rescue community so I’m interested to see if there is other members that can offer some direction as well as other experiences obtaining FAA waver to fly at night.

One of the challenges and question that is typically asked by new pilots is “Where can I fly safely and without being harassed?” I believe many new and existing pilots can benefit with some type of repository that can help answer this question and perhaps something that this group can  help.

Thank you and looking forward to be an active member of this group.

Great to meet you, @Cesar . Welcome to our forum!

There are new proposed rules for flying at night, you can read more here:


Wouldn't likely go into effect until later this year or in 2020, but worth reading through to understand what's coming down the pike.

Thanks Alan for the welcome and the link to the resource. I will be reviewing the document so I can be familiar and prepare for the new regulations.
