Does this mean we now need a Remote Pilot Certificate?
“A person operating a small UAS must either hold a remote pilot airman certificate with a small UAS rating or be under the direct supervision of a person who does hold a remote pilot certificate (remote pilot in command).
To qualify for a remote pilot certificate, a person must:
o Demonstrate aeronautical knowledge by either:
Passing an initial aeronautical knowledge test at
an FAA-approved knowledge testing center; or
Hold a part 61 pilot certificate other than student
pilot, complete a flight review within the previous 24 months, and complete a small UAS online training course provided by the FAA.
o Be vetted by the Transportation Security Administration.
o Be at least 16 years old.
• Part 61 pilot certificate holders may obtain a temporary remote pilot certificate immediately upon submission of their application for a permanent certificate. Other applicants will obtain a temporary remote pilot certificate upon successful completion of TSA security vetting. The FAA anticipates that it will be able to issue a temporary remote pilot certificate within 10 business days after receiving a completed remote pilot certificate application.
• Until international standards are developed, foreign-certificated UAS pilots will be required to obtain an FAA - issued remote pilot certificate with a small UAS rating.”
@DJMajickMan This is one reason you aren’t harassed with ads on my YouTube channel.
The other reason is because it takes hundreds of thousands of views to reach YouTube’s minimum payment threshold. Why would I want to annoy a couple hundred thousand people with Kia minivan ads for like 20 bucks?
