Part 107, Waivers, Exemptions, and Certifications: How to Do the Things You Want to Do


Created on September 19, 2016




The FAA has finally promulgated its new regulations for the operation of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), more commonly known as "drones."  This new system has opened the skies to commercial drones like never before, and presents exciting new business opportunities. At the same time, however, the FAA has substantially increased the amount it can fine illegal operators. It is important to know what you can and cannot do under the new regulations. In addition, the FAA has implemented a system of waivers, exemptions, and certifications that will allow you to go beyond the basics of the regulations.  

This course, presented by Mark McKinnon, an aviation attorney with over 25 years of experience and co-chair of the Dentons UAS practice group provides an overview of the regulations governing UAS operations in the United States, and what you will need to know to take advantage.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Understand the legal framework governing UAS operation in the National Airspace System under 14 C.F.R. Part 107
  2. Comprehend the current new exemption and waiver processes
  3. Prepare for more advanced UAS operations such as night operations, flight over people, and flight beyond visual line of sight
