How to get a drone license
Applying for a drone license
Being able to fly a drone is an incredibly useful — and fun — skill. But it's also a pretty complicated one to put to use, particularly if you plan on flying your drone for work or business purposes. Drone use in the United States is regulated by the Federal Aviation Administration, which requires that commercial drone pilots obtain a license to operate their craft legally — specifically in the form of the Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate.
While anyone can sit for the Part 107 test, figuring out how to prepare, study, and ultimately pass it can feel like a challenge in and of itself. That’s why we put together this handy guide, which walks you through everything, from picking a drone that’s right for you, to registering for your Part 107 test.
