Have y'all heard about the new requirement that all drone pilots must have a remote pilot airman certificate? Some of the requirements are as follows:
Be at least 16 years old. If you are not old enough you must be under the supervision of someone who is.
Be in physical and mental condition to be able to fly a drone.
And you have to pass an initial aeronautical knowledge exam at an FAA approved testing center.
On top of all of that fun, there is a $150 fee to get your license.
Here is the page on the FAA website.

This only applies to those pilots who want to do commercial work.
