How do I fly a UAS or drone for work or business purposes?

There are three ways to fly a UAS or drone for work, business, or non-recreational reasons:
  • Follow the requirements in the Small UAS rule (Part 107)
  • Obtain an exemption under the Special Authority for Certain Unmanned Systems (U.S.C. 44807).
  • Obtain an airworthiness certificate for the aircraft
