Commercial Drone Rules Part 107 – What You Need to Know



    UPDATE: The FAA released the official Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 107 Rules:

    • The FAA Fact Sheet is available here
    • Get the official Summary here
    • The entire 624-page small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) document can be found here

    If you are interested in becoming a commercial drone operator under the Part 107 of the CFR14 please sign up to receive helpful information on passing your FAA required Exam.

    We have been waiting for the new rules for commercial drone operation. Today is rumored to be the day that we finally see the new 14CFR Part 107 rules for commercial sUAS (small Unmanned Aircraft Systems).

    Compared to the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking which was issued in February 2015 there are a few changes:

    • Minimum age for a Remote Pilot in Command is 16 years old
    • Maximum altitude changed to 400 feet AGL
    • Requirement to read, speak and understand English
    • Current Part 61 manned aircraft certificate holders (pilots) will only have to pass an online test
    • Note that non-certificated Drone Operators will have to pass an FAA Exam at an FAA FSDO (Flight Standards District Office)

    This new Part 107 Code of Federal Regulations will get rid of the time intensive and costly requirements which are currently in place. You will no longer have to deal with the 333 Exemption, be a manned airplane pilot, have a visual observer, and you won’t need to hold a certificate of authorization or issue a notice to airmen.
