  1. Greetings.
    I am interested in becoming a FAA Part 107 licensed pilot. I have flown RC airplanes over the years. But could you help direct me in the proper path to get “certified & licensed” to do it professionally.
    When I do become licensed, I would be interested in perhaps doing this work with your company.
    Thank you.

    1. Hi James, thanks for contacting us. The FAA regulates the Part 107 licenses, and the written test is very similar to the test that regular pilots are required to take. Here is an overview:

      FAA even has their own course online:

      There are some paid courses that are pretty good as well, but don’t pay a lot of money for one. I recommend RemotePilot101.com if you want to go that route. It costs $150, but the instructor is really good and gives good explanations of everything.

      Whenever you’re ready, simply register to take the test. Gulf Coast Aviation at the Lakefront Airport is our local testing center.
