Press Release – DOT and FAA Finalize Rules for Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems
Actual regulation here http://www.faa.gov/uas/media/Part_107_Summary.pdf
The way I read it, we all need to take a test? It would also seem that if we take the test then there is no longer a distinction of flying a drone for commercial purpose vs flying a drone for fun, so anybody who passes the test can fly commercially? 333 Exemption is no longer needed?
Not sure it still has the section that talks about "model aircraft" which the way I read it covers hobby flyers.
This is NOT for hobby fliers... only another option to a 333 for COMMERCIAL use. A 333 still has more freedoms than a 107.
What freedoms would those be?
The 333 alone required an actual pilot license...the 107 will not. What other freedoms would the 333 have?
Section 333 has disappeared from FAA website in its entirety, what does that mean?
Unmanned Aircraft Systems
So if I read this right, It is legal (August 2016) in the US to use my UAS for commercial use? I will just need have a UAS Pilot Certificate (coming soon) and abide the rules?
That is correct. I think that the rules are a little lax, but it looks like the law makers were trying harder to create jobs than consider risk. There will be an enormous influx of previously illegal operators who are now legal, but still don't know what they're doing.
So this means I need to provide / prove to the "oh mighty FAA" that I'm a solid UAV pilot that has been flying for over ten years and understand what I'm doing to get a piece of paper stating so? This law is made for the people wanting to get in to the business.
I guess the "Certified UAV Pilots" sub forum isn't going to be quite as exclusive anymore...
I was the one who opted for a pro section.
There! Bash me if you want. I am beginning to feel like a racist.
Sorry that you feel it to be THAT exclusive. Everybody can always post questions there about starting a commercial UAV business and ask the guys who have already been there. It was never about devision into classes. A hobbyist could possibly be better at flying then a pro, but that never was the point. It was just that discussions or questions that would only touch professional use, would be answered by other pro's. And that discussions would stay on topic as much as possible.
It was a joke.
The first part of my post as well.
Let's call it even.
If you have a 333 you wont need the 107, though. It can be used in lieu of the 107.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but it was my understanding that a Remote Pilot Certificate would not be sufficient to fly above people on a closed set (movie business) and that to be permitted to fly above people on a movie set you would need to have a higher pilot license and that the FAA would have to review the plan on a case by case basis. Am I wrong? If so, how?
The way it was told to me is you cant have components of the 107 and the 333. You have to decide on one or the other. That being said I am not 100 percent positive but any closed movie set would require a special cert or approval not included in the 107.
Here is a question for you guys.
I have submitted a 333 just before Part 107 came down. What should I do? Let it ride or pull it?
LOL - you mean there is an option to "Pull Out" - lol
