Are you interested in getting involved in this exciting field of aviation technology? If so, this UAV Economic Report is a real eye opener and will show just how much an opportunity exists in this new and exciting technology that is expected to have a $82.1 Billion economic growth and creating over 100,000 new jobs in just the next 10 years. I also think you will find this NBC Nightly News Report on Drones interesting.

And, the new FAA Part 107 has made it even easier to Fly Legally in the USA.

If you're already operating under a 333 exemption, this is good for two years, and then you will operate under Part 107 (see more on this below). If you're wanting to start operating UAV in your existing business or as a new company, this will be done under Part 107 (effective Aug. 2016)

Below are the basic things an operator must know for flying under the small UAS rule (14 CFR part 107):

Pilot Requirements:

  • Must be at least 16 years old
  • Must pass an initial aeronautical knowledge test at an FAA-approved knowledge testing center+
  • Must be vetted by the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA)

+A person who already holds a pilot certificate issued under 14 CFR part 61 and has successfully completed a flight review within the previous 24 months can complete a part 107 online training course to satisfy this requirement.

Aircraft Requirements:

  • Less than 55 lbs.
  • Must be registered

Operating Rules:

  • Class G airspace*

Christina is an Army Reserve Blackhawk Pilot and Brigade UAS Advisor. Christina started her Active Duty Navy Career in 1994 in the Electronic Warfare program where she graduated as Honor Graduated from her “C” school. She went on to deploy on both the USS Inchon (MCS-12) and USS Bataan (LHD-5). After her six-year enlistment was over, she joined the Virginia Air National Guard as a weather forecaster. Once again, Christina graduated as Honor Graduate, and quickly earned her 7-Level Air Force Weather Forecaster’s Badge. While forecasting for the 82nd Airborne Division at Ft. Bragg, NC, she realized that she needed to actually be in the air, flying, not on the ground forecasting. She submitted her flight packet and was selected to attend the Army’s Initial Entry Rotary Wing course at Ft. Rucker. She chose the Virginia Army National Guard as they were slated for deployment immediately following her flight school graduation. Less than six months after graduation, Christina was flying combat missions in Iraq, accumulating over 1,000 combat hours in one year. Upon their return, she volunteered for Operation Jump Start along the southern border where she was able to earn her Day/Night/NVG Pilot-in-Command status. She quickly integrated with Customs and Border Patrol, particularly the BORSTAR agents as they became essential crewmembers for every-day missions. Christina joined the Florida National Guard where she quickly saw the need for mentorship of the Unmanned Aircraft Platoon.

After attending school at Ft. Huachuca, AZ, she again volunteered for a deployment to Afghanistan. Capitalizing her expertise as the only 150U in country, she rewrote the Unmanned Aircraft Section for the Aircrew Procedures Guide for Afghanistan and incorporated unmanned aircraft into the document. As the Contractor Representative for the first civilian-run airfield in Afghanistan she was instrumental on the safe integration of manned/unmanned airfield operations. She enlisted local translators to translate passenger briefs into local dialects. Upon her return to the US she was hired on as a contractor for the FAA UAS Integration Office (AFS-80) where she brought a level of experience not seen in the office. She aided in the original draft and adjudication of the FAA Roadmap, conducted extensive research for the Interoperability Memo, and provided guidance on ASTM, RTCA and ICAO documents.

We have taken the risk out of buying a UAV with a 100% Money Back Guarantee.

Here is how it works.

As you probably already know, it is illegal to fly a UAV in our National Airspace (NAS) for commercial purposes without receiving an FAA Section 333 Exemption. The  Exemption allows you to only fly a "particular" registered aircraft(s) with a tail number(s). So the first thing that you need to do is to purchase your UAV.  If you would like to purchase one of our Industrial Grade UAV's, we require a 50% deposit on all orders. Once you have placed your order, you then need to apply for the 333 Exemption. Of course you can use anyone that you choose to file for you. If you use one of our recommended aviation attorney and you do not receive your Section 333 Exemption, we will Refund 100% of Your Deposit and you are under no further obligation.

But, the good news even gets better. Our team of experts also also offers a 100% Money Back Guarantee if you do not get your Exemption. Its a win - win!! You have nothing to lose!!

If you already own a UAV and want to file for an Exemption, our strategic team of partners will prepare and file your Exemption, too.

Certain Exemptions may apply.  See your representative for details.

All HSE Industrial Grade UAV's come with a 1 Yr Warranty.
