    Many, if not most, drone businesses and operators are flying without 107 certification. Per a popular drone website.

    The Part 107 Exam isn't as hard as you may think. You need a 70% to Pass it.

    I took the FAAs part 107 sample exam yesterday. I never formally studied for it. I just picked up information as I needed as a Recreational Pilot over the last 2 years. Most information gathered was from Forums (like this one), the FAA guidelines themselves, Legal/law websites and Youtube...

    Air 2 Recent client work. Much easier than me getting up in an adjacent bucket.

    The client wanted stills of their linemen at work. Shooting with a Mavic Air 2 and experienced no interference from the hot lines in the area. And yes, I have the Part 107 certificate.

    Controlled Airspace altitude limit and structures

    When you have a LAANC authorization with an altitude limit of less than 400 ft AGL in controlled airspace is that limit strictly from the ground or does that include within xxx feet from a structure as well? We know that the 400’ AGL general height limit is no higher than 400’ from ground but...

    Hobbyist versus Part 107

    Hey all, I'm currently a hobbyist flier with a single (Mavic Air) SUAV. I'm actually fairly good at passing certification exams, when there's a decent test-prep, to help me learn the material that's on the exam. So three questions: 1) As a hobbyist who likes the idea of using LAANC, but of...

    Hello, and thanks in advance for your help. I passed the FAA part 107 knowledge on Dec 20th, however IACRA still will not recognize my test ID.

    Underage Drinking & Part 107

    I am aware that the FAA does not like drug and alcohol charges on pilots records. In my state, if you get an underage and go to a class, the charge will not go on your record. As a 19 year old with a 107, would getting an underage and then taking the class so it does not go on my record effect...
