    Do I need a part 107 if I'm volunteering to shoot drone video to promote a California State Park?

    I'm not part 107 but I am registered as a recreational pilot. I've been invited by the manager of a California State Park to shoot drone video to help promote diversity and awareness of the State Park on their website. They are handling all the necessary authorizations and I don't know what that...

    I work for a state university and am studying up for a 107 cert. My unit is looking to purchase a mavic air 2 for a research project. As with most large state/local gov I don’t do any of the actual buying, I just do the request, and there are rules for who can sign contracts, what apps we can...

    $8000 drone vs $1000 drone at night photography

    I frequently shoot pictures of our state capitol since I live in it and was making some new attempts at creating photos of it under the 336 rules, so that when I go to the trouble of following the SOPs for our Daylight Waiver, I would not be wasting anyone's time. Our Capitol is in Class D...

    Flying for fun under 107

    Should my drone photography company buy general liability insurance?

    So, I just passed my FAA 107 this past Thursday (woohoo!) I am looking to use my Mavic Air for real estate photography just on the side. My big goal here is to minimize my overhead as much as possible because I really don't know how much money I'll make with it. I have a full time job, kids, a...

    Passed the 107 yesterday

    I went and took my 107 test yesterday and was quite surprised at the test. I had been studying from Remotepilot101 for a couple of weeks, watched the videos a couple times and took the final test about 20 times. I could nail the test and felt I had a good grasp of all the information I would...

How easy is the semi automated process to contact ATC to clear a flight compared to having to contact each of the towers/managers around you. I live by a Class D airport along with 4 heliports. If it simplified being able to fly...
