    Do people with commercial licenses have the right to fly above 400'? Is it possible to fly at 5000'?

    To fly over 400' you have to get a specific "Exemption" that is outside of the Section 333 or Part 107 process.

    In general you'd have to get the approval/exemption for each specific flight/location to operate outside of the Section 333 or Part 107 (when it goes into effect in late August).

    Thanks for the info. Kind of figured I wasn't being given correct information.

    I would say you would be hard pressed to get to 5000 feet and back on one battery.
