Looking at the personal drone industry, it has been seen as one of those that has seen such an influx of interest in the past few years. We see lots of drones making their first flights every passing day and the number of the pilots flying the UAVs, unmanned aerial vehicles, is ever growing with each passing day. For some in society, this increase in demand and popularity of the use of drones is indeed good news such as for the drone manufacturers, their retailers, those interested in drones such as kids and adults with an interest in aviation and mechanics, and the commercial entities who depend on these to advance their commercial agenda. This be as may, you need to appreciate as well that there are some who are not as wholly comfortable with the darting devices, the drones, over their heads as is the case in some of the residential neighborhoods and commercial areas, and as such there gets to be raised some few questions of essence that need to attended to anyway in so far as the flying of drones go.
This post is particularly focused on discussing the issue of the need to have some licensing for the flying of drones.
First, when it comes to the question of whether or not one requires licensing for the piloting of drones, it must be noted that this is rather relative. This is for the fact that the regulations and requirements are of course all varying as per the location where you are planning to fly your drone and the intention or purpose of the flight.
The one thing that must be clear is that you can have your drones flown for commercial purposes and some as well fly them for recreational purposes. The following lines are taking a particular look at the need to have drone piloting licensing, be they for commercial or recreational purposes. If at all there be need, you need to as well know that you can as well obtain a remote pilot’s license for the flying of drones and this as well is touched on.
The Federal Aviation Administration, the FAA, has indeed laid down clear guidelines on the pilot license certifications for the flight of drones for recreational needs. From these particular stipulations, it is so apparent that in the event that you will be flying your drones indoors, then there will be no need or call for you to have a remote drone pilot license certification or even have your drones registered with the FAA. In the event that your drone weighs more than 0..55 pounds and is to be used for recreational purposes, then you will have to register it with the Federal Aviation Administration.
