FAA Part 107 Licensed Drone Operator
The FAA requires that anyone operating a drone for commercial use according to their definition must pass the Part 107 Knowledge Test to be a licensed drone operator. Plus registration of the drone itself as well. We meet this obligation back in November 2016, and in accordance with their requirements return to pass the recurrent test every two years thereafter. It is recommended that whomever you use for drone operations that they be in compliance with the FAA. This will keep both you and them out of trouble.
