- I just wanted to announce to the forum that my company (GeoSky3, LLC) has been given an exemption from the FAA.  Our request was put in with the Inspire 1 as our main operating UAS.

- This is a good step forward for the Inspire 1 as well as for our business and the many of us that own them.  In a way it legitimizes its place as a UAS.  Looking forward we will be looking for the SDK (software to create third party apps for the Inspire 1 Pilot App) from DJI and other add ons that we all wish would come sooner.

- Some of you may have already read my past posts on how to submit to the FAA for an exemption status.  Please look up my posts and if you still have any questions I would be happy to answer them to the best that I can.

Do you still need a license pilot to fly the bird?

This is directly from the exemption:

A PIC must hold either an airline transport, commercial, private, recreational, or sport pilot certificate.

The last two (recreational and sport pilot certificate) was just recently approved by the FAA.  It makes it less expensive in acquiring a license and a third class medical certificate.

Here is an article on it.  The bottom line is that it is cheaper to obtain.

Was the pilot license requirement added by the FAA. I thought the exemption requirements were expected not to have this requirement. I am instrument rated so it is not a problem for me, but will be for most, even those looking for the sport cert.

I really feel sorry for you guys in the States. So many years behind other countries with commercial license for UAV's.

Good luck with the business

We still have to stick to a limit of 400ft.  Our COA is a blanket.  The FAA issued this type just recently so we do not have to wait for permission (waiting for the COA to be approved for certain areas).

Hello! I work at https://prime-essay.net/ as a writer and this summer I will have a vacation and I'm looking for a place where to spend it. I saw that here it was mentioned about the Greek Islands and I'd like to find out whether you managed to visit it. I will be grateful if someone could suggest to me some other vibrant and scenery places for my vacation to make it unforgettable.

Most tourists head down south toward Santorini, Naxos, Crete.  But there are some nice islands north.  Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonnisos.  Skopelos is the island that was used for the movie Mama Mia and has been a place for top stars to get away to.
