So we need to take a test to obtain a permit to fly now? Am I reading this correctly?

For commercial (non-hobby) UAS only.  Hobbyists are not required to take the test.

It is for commercial and goverment use. I think it is to help lift the need for a pilot license basically since so many people complained about that.

Got it so if we get caught filming a real estate video for an agent we're technically in violation if we don't possess a permit?

I hope the general response is not to avoid 'getting caught'. That attitude is why there is a need for such regs.

Wow flighttime that a very specific time.  If you don't have info to answer my question you aren't compelled to give me an answer.  In fact, I'd prefer you said nothing than give wrong, inaccurate or vague answers and info.

However, when you do have good info, I and others appreciate it... It's the sarcasm we could do without

This is Drone Deploy's read on Part 107. Came in my email moments ago.

"You may have already heard, but the FAA released some big news today. Part 107, the long-anticipated rule governing small commercial UAVs has been announced.
The rule, which will go into effect in late August, significantly reduces the requirements for most commercial drone operations. Most notably, the new rule no longer requires a pilot’s license and section 333 exemption, and instead requires a Remote Pilot Certificate which can be obtained by taking a written test at one of approximately 700 testing centers, or online for Part 61 certificate holders.
The new rule also aims to make day-to-day drone operations more efficient by no longer requiring a Notice To Airman (NOTAM) prior to flying or a second person to attend each flight as a spotter."

Aloha flighttime,

     The FAA actually put in the "Visual Observer" for flights out of VLOS.  The Visual Observer and operator may be in radio or telecommunications contact, but must be in contact during the time VLOS by the operator is lost.  Page 142;

ii. Operational Requirements When Using Visual Observer

The NPRM also proposed a set of operational requirements for operations that use a visual observer. First, the operator and visual observer would be required to maintain effective communication with each other at all times. Under the NPRM, the operator and visual observer would not have to stand close enough to hear each other without technological assistance; instead, they could use a communication-assisting device, such as a radio, to communicate while standing farther apart from each other. Second, the operator would be required to ensure that the visual observer be positioned in a manner that would allow him or her to maintain visual line of sight of the small unmanned aircraft. Third, the operator and visual observer would be required to coordinate to: (1) scan the airspace where the small unmanned aircraft is operating for any potential collision hazard; and (2) maintain awareness of the position of the small unmanned aircraft through direct visual observation. This rule will finalize the above provisions as proposed, but, due to the change in the crewmember framework, this rule will refer to the remote pilot in command and the person manipulating the flight controls of the small UAS instead of “operator.”

Aloha and Drone On!

Aloha SkySight,

     The good news is the new "Part 107 Rules" for small UAS have come out.

     If you download it, you can search it way more easily than while it is on line.  Use the "Control F" function and enter your search word or words (it accepts at least 2) in the box that opens up on the upper right.  (You can also customize the screen for easy viewing if you take some time to do it.)  

     The 624 page rules is too large to attach here but can be downloaded here;

Aloha LP and Adam,

     Actually, the 60 days is to get the testing and compliance programs in place before the anticipated onslaught of sUAS operators try to become compliant.  The will be hundreds of testing sites in the US and they all have to have the right test and security.  Then there is the TSA vetting requirement and plenty more.  60 days is barely enough time.  It is the government after all!.  I will be impressed if they make the deadline.
