Consider this - if a sUAS pilot is not FAA Part 107-certified, not only is it illegal to operate but its a huge risk monetarily and legally.  New regulations come out frequently and the fines for violations and unlicensed operators can be high.

Certification Requirements:

  • Pass an initial aeronautical knowledge test at a 690 FAA-approved testing center.

  • Be vetted by the Transportation Security Administration.

  • Obtain a Remote Pilot Certificate with a small UAS rating.

  • Pass a recurrent aeronautical knowledge test every 24 months.

  • Make available to the FAA, upon request, all associated documents/logs and small UAS for inspection or testing.

  • Conduct a preflight inspection, to include specific aircraft and control systems checks, to ensure the small UAS is safe for operation.

As one of a limited number of Part 107-certified operators in the Sacramento area, our number one concern is quality and safety. One of the biggest mistakes many make is to assume that anyone can operate a sUAS. This is the mindset that can lead to unfortunate and very dangerous consequences.  It's not simply a matter of buying it and flying it!  At California Aerial Images, we are committed to operating our aerial platforms with the highest regard for safety.
