Yes, he's changing it to "107.org"Excellent pic Maddog. I tried to go to 333.org but it says it is under construction. However the photo is so good it could be used as is.
Baldguy-Hi Dave, your concerns are well taken and, I'm certain, well intended. For that, I'm very grateful. However, to take the conversation a step further, I made the hodgepodge seal because an official one didn't seem to exist. As a long-time government employee, I know we often created programs and new policy and didn't have time or funding to create the peripheral niceties such as a logo, seal, or patch, and would rely on an "art contest" to have someone else submit ideas; make the selection, then press on. Since a certified remote pilot seal didn't exist, I hoped to jump-start that process. It is not for sale; it is free for downloading so I have not and will not profit from the image. Why is it so important right now? It was the FAA who said we could not fly commercially then they came out with a path to do so via the 333 then 107. The seal is to signify we are rule followers. I'm a rule follower and have waited for official guidance from the FAA for ANY commercial activity. While waiting for my 333, along came 107. GREAT! I studied like crazy and actually passed the test. Wow! Since we have cared enough about the law and the authority of the FAA to study for, take, and pass the 107, the seal shows the public, by the FAA's authority, that we're professionals who care about the rules, public safety, security, and privacy--that we want the industry to move forward in a structured and safe manner for the good of society. The seal, as unofficial as it is at this time, also tells the FAA we take their work and guidance very seriously. As a federal employee, I often made difficult decisions and had to ask myself if I could stand before congress and answer why I did one thing or another. I would be glad, in good faith, to answer anyone as to why I made this simple seal. It's a contribution for the good of the industry. This was more than you asked for but again, I sincerely appreciate your post on the subject as we move this industry forward. Fly Safe!
I second that- I got my PPL in 1988 and was surprised at how much work was involved. Before I started I thought it would be a cakewalk- wrong. It wasn't easy but I felt very confident afterwards even though I knew I had only gotten "a license to learn".Thanks for your input Dave and congrats on your PPL. That is a legit accomplishment.
