    Question regarding Part 107 requirements

    With fall sports seasons starting up, I plan to fly my drone in the open fields while my daughter is at cheer practice. This made me think of a question. If I were to get footage (with permission from any parents of course) to create a fun montage of the season, would I be required to have a...

    FAA Overreach on Applicability of Part 107 Rules

    This one should get your blood boiling. If not, then I have not been clear enough. You thought that Part 107 only applied to commercial work/business activity, right? NO SAYS THE FAA. By now you are aware that there is a special rule for the Academy of Model Aeronautics, and other...

But the sooner its implemented, the sooner positive effect it will have on the budding industry. If possible, and Executive...
