Drone in Flight

License to Fly

Quick update (long overdue) about just one of the things I’ve been working on. Actually, it’s been done for a while, but today this card arrived in my mailbox – my official FAA issued UAS (Unmanned Aircraft System) Remote Pilot’s license. I thought about doing a whole “I believe I can fly” thing, but I just need to get a blog post out and share this.

I desperately need to blog about numerous things, and by that I mean I’ve got tons of stuff to share, but I haven’t had much time to give posts the attention they deserve. I blame Twitter (which has also been therapy for me lately) because it’s so easy to give a topic short shrift when you can just tweet it.

I passed the test way back in the beginning of March, and I just received the card today. Two months is typical for others who have gone through this process. There is a whole storyline of how this all began for me, and I’ll write about it in a future post, but it’s been quite a journey, and trajectories have been altered along the way. However, stay tuned because I’m feeling that there’s lots to talk about in 2017 (not just drones), and though the year is more than 1/4 over, it’s better late than never.

  1. I’m totally late on commenting on this (blame a deep backlong of blog posts to read), but congrats! That is very cool. If I ever make it down to FL I want to see that license in action.
