    Does anyone have a copy of a petition that we can all use as a template? That way we could just change all the personal information to our own. The more I read about what it needs, the more confused I get...

    There really isn't one template that'll fit every type of business. It would be best to find a few granted petitions for companies that are in the same type of business -- and, then use those as a template for your petition.

    I have been through there, but those seem to be the approvals, not the actual petition the user submitted. I am interested in seeing what was originally submitted to get the approval.

    You can find the submitted exemptions requests here.

    THAT is exactly what I was looking for! Thank you! I don't have a pilot license yet (not that I ever will) but I would like to go ahead and get this 333 process started so it is done when the time comes that a license isn't required.

    You won't need a 333 exemption then. That's the point of the NPRM.

    I was under the impression that the 333 is required regardless, and *currently, a license is required due to the fact that the license is the only documentation of required airspace safety training, but the NPRM was working on another way to be "certified" on the safety side, but the 333 would still be required. Am I missing the entire point? haha

    As I said before, the more I read, the more confused I get

    Since it's impossible to follow some of the existing rules when flying a UAV, people must submit a 333 exemption to become exempt from those rules. Once the NPRM has been released, most people will be able to follow the new rules without needing to request exemption from them.

    Ok prepare yourself for a possibly ignorant question... If I get the 333 exemption, the PIC still needs to hold, at minimum, a sport pilot license right?

    The person flying needs to hold a minimum of a recreational or sport pilot license.

    When is the FAA ever going to finish the sUAS rules so operators can go into business?

    People are hoping the new rules will be out this year, but there really is no hard deadline.

    This may help. This was my petition I submitted today. Once you type it up, you go to Regulations.gov and select the "comment" field on the upper right and attach (in PDF) you petition. Then you just wait a half a year or so....
