License & Certification
Without license and certification, it’s illegal to fly drones commercially. For a photographer or video production company to offer drone photos and videos to their clients, license and certification is required.
Flying drones is also more complicated than you might think. Because they are unmanned aircraft, FAA regulations apply. Drone pilots must know how to:
Read weather patterns
Determine different airspace classifications
Read sectional maps
Determine temporary airspace restrictions
Obtain authorization to fly in airspace other than Class G
Use team members to increase safety
Research NOTAMs (Notice to Airmen) regarding potential hazards along their flight routes
File NOTAMs to alert other pilots of our drone activity
File flight plans
Maintain flight logs and equipment documents
