I am so excited to announce that I am now a Certified Nashville Drone Photographer! I took and passed the FAA part 107 test and passed it with flying colors… (Pun intended). The information you need to know to pass the test is serious and is partially information aviation students need to know to become full pilots.
There are two kinds of drone people: the enthusiast and the professional pilot. If you make any kind of profit directly or indirectly with your drone, you have to become certified. It’s one of the few things that I can think of that is this way. The other thing is once you’re a certified pilot, you can also be an enthusiast, but not the other way around. However, the FAA is starting to be more strict with the flying for fun folks.
I bought an online course to study for the test and went with RemotePilote101. It’s a lifetime membership and they keep up to date with the drone rules and regulations. (I’m not associated with them and they’re not paying me.) But it’s a great site and gave me the information that I never even thought I’d need to know to fly a drone.
All that being said, I am now a Drone Certified Pilot. What that means is I have the knowledge of airspace and operating procedures to safely capture images and video. If you contact me about drone photos and you live near Nashville International Airport, depending on how close you are will determine how high in the air I can fly. Also I need permission to fly in that air space. Having that knowledge is entirely my responsibility, not yours, to know. You can rest assured that when you hire me for a drone operation, it will be done so to the standards that comply with the FAA rules.
