    Is anyone else experiencing excessively long waits for FAA Airspace Authorizations? I have have submitted only two (both were filled out absolutely perfectly). Right now, this is simply not practical for my Class D Airspace, which contains a ton of residential neighborhoods (I shoot real...

    Record Time Between Test & Application Association w/IACRA?

    I completed and passed the exam at 220000Z and was able to associate it to the IACRA application form on 230045Z. (If you've taken the exam, you'll know how to read those times!) That's got to be a new speed record of 24.75 hours from test completion to application association (for someone that...

    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.

    Do you fly or want to fly commercially?

    Hi all, We just ran a Q&A with one of our drone lawyer advisors, Jeff Antonelli, on our blog and I think he gave very insightful and useful answers for anyone flying a drone commercially. I've seen a fair amount of people on this forum either currently flying commercially or wanting to fly...

    Uncertified Rogue Commercial Drone Operators

    Not sure if this has been discussed. I went to a lot of time and trouble - plus $150 testing fee - to get my Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate to be in the good graces of the FAA. I studied my butt off and made a 95% on the General Knowledge Test. Like many here, I intend to use Aerial...

    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.

    FAA Terminology

    I see many threads here on PP (and FB) where people don't have a firm grasp on some of the most needed FAA Terminology and it could cause confusion if you're not careful.

    Starting Part 107 small UAS Course

    Just thinking about starting the FAAST Part 107 small UAS Course and want to know if you can work through it at your own pace. Can you start and stop lessons as you need to? Or do you have to complete each learning segment after you start one? Not sure if I worded that correctly - just starting out.
