Each video lesson will hold your interest and make learning easy and exciting.

  1. Do I need a drone license?
    There are two sets of rules depending on the type of operation. The requirements for who may operate the UAV are different for each type of operation.

    Group 1 - Rules for Commercial Operators/Private Citizens
    This set of rules applies to individuals or commercial enterprises who are not employed by, or working for a governmental agency. The rules apply any time you are operating a drone in the furtherance of a business even if there is no direct compensation.

    Group 2 - Rules for people who are working for Government agencies
    This set of rules is for people who fly drones for government entities (local, state and federal government agencies) regardless if they are employees or contractors.

    Government agencies may operate under either Part 107 regulations or obtain a Certificate of Authorization (COA) from the FAA that outlines the specific conditions that they have to follow to fly a drone including pilot certification.

    What does all this mean?
    Since August 29, 2016, most pilots operating a small UAS for non-recreational purposes must either hold a FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate with a Small UAS Rating or be under the direct supervision of a person who does hold a Remote Pilot Certificate (the remote Pilot In Command). To qualify for a Remote Pilot Certificate, you must:
    • Pass an initial aeronautical knowledge test at an FAA-Approved Knowledge Testing Center
    • OR
    • If you already hold an FAA Part 61 Pilot Certificate (other than Student Pilot):
      • Have a successful Flight Review endorsed within the previous 24 months
      • Complete a small UAS online training course provided by the FAA.
