Part 107 Certificate required!
Flying drones in the US for commercial purposes (versus recreational or educational purposes) requires the pilot to obtain a Part 107 Certificate from the FAA. Commercial drone work is defined by the pilot obtaining anything of value in return for the flight operations.
If you're not FAA-certified, and you are looking to become a certified remote pilot, we highly recommend Drone Pilot Ground School
Always avoid manned aircraft.
Never operate in a careless or reckless manner.
Keep your drone within sight. If you use First Person View or similar technology, you must have a visual observer always keep your drone within unaided sight (for example, no binoculars).
You cannot be a pilot or visual observer for more than one drone operation at a time.
Do not fly a drone over people unless they are directly participating in the operation.
Do not operate your drone from a moving vehicle or aircraft unless you are flying your drone over a sparsely populated area and it does not involve the transportation of property for compensation or hire.
