LA Training June 21-22, 2016

Come attend our next LA training class, located in Dana Point, June 21-22, 2016. 

"I love the Alta 8, it feels that it has more footing in the air, it's more solid and grounded." Rory Hinds - Mine Films 

 "It's really beneficially to do the training. Being able to train with somebody that is experienced that's been doing it for years. You learn things that took them years to learn, to be able to have that knowledge passed down is really valuable." Michael Jennings - Director of Media at Komplique

FAA Part 107 Improvement for sUAS?

The FAA has been developing regulations for small UAS (sUAS) (between .55 lbs and 55 lbs), the sUAS regulations are currently going through an executive level review and barring any unforeseen issues they are anticipate to be published in June of 2016. The new regulations governing sUAS operation will be in 14 CFR Part 107. Until the new rule is actually published its release date and the content of Part 107 can change. One of the things this new rules does is changes the requirements for operating sUAS. Once it goes into effect a pilot’s license will not be required, instead the folks in D.C. are developing a standalone sUAS Operators Certificate, to qualify for the certificate you will have to pass a written test. The understanding is that the test will be administered via computer testing centers, just like the pilots certificate. There will be an Online prep course available. As far as flight time qualification, there will be no flight training or flight experience required.
