1st I want to appologize if this topic has been done. I have searched and searched and I am confused cause I don’t know how old something has been posted and what is new.
I just received a Mavic Air for my Bday last week. So I have been reading alot about rules and such.
I have registered the drone and received my FAA # But I don’t know if i need to get a pilot certification to fly for fun. On one website I read that I do not need to get a pilot certification. And then on the FAA’s websited i read this.
(## Changes Coming in the Future
The FAA is upgrading the online system, known as LAANC (the Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability), so that recreational operations can get automated airspace authorizations to fly in controlled airspace.
The new law also requires:
- Drone operators to pass an online aeronautical knowledge and safety test and carry proof of test passage.)
What does this mean? Is this the same as pilot certification or just a test to take to fly in a controlled airspace. I am not sure if I am reading to much into this or what but I just want to be legal.
I would sure appreciate your input on this.
