    USA Recertification Test

    So I'm due to recertify my Part 107 by Sep 1st and I had a quick question some of you might have some knowledge on.

    USA I got caught between needing a sport pilot license and 107

    Get a sport pilots license or wait for the FAA? This was the big question about two years ago when we decided to take the leap to establish Force Aerial. I decided to go for the pilots license. If I could get my airman certificate before the FAA came up with a more streamlined approach to the...

    USA Commercial part 107 Pilots

    I knew this is a problem we would run across, but I didn't know just how rampant it was. I've been doing a lot of commercial real estate shoots, but came across a farm for sale. When I offered my services, I find out the guy who does the interior shots overs "drone shots" for an additional...

    Approved Airspace Authorization!

    So the FAA to date has only approved 81 airspace authorizations. I’m proud to say we’re one of those. Nearly 1,000 have been submitted yet the FAA is throwing out 90% of them! In this quick video I show the authorization and detail the steps we took to make it happen.

    Airman Certificate Question

    I've been issued my temp airman certificate and was wondering the wait time to get the real card in the mail, not sure exactly what to "search" for as searching for "airman certificate wait" etc.. doesn't really pull up what im looking for.

    Video: Understanding Airspace

    Charts and airspace play such a huge role not only in our everyday operations but also on the FAA Part 107 knowledge test. Last week myself and the team at RemotePilot101 handled over 1,000 support tickets/live chat requests and the common theme was airspace. So I put together a quick video for...

    So a hypothetical scenario popped into my head, and after going through the Part 107 AC, the part 107 rules themselves, and even the entire Federal Register discussion with respondent notes, I am still terribly vexed on this one. Let's say I'm an owner/operator (in the aircraft sense), with a...
