    I am particularly concerned about this....."To qualify for a remote pilot certificate, an individual must either pass an initial aeronautical knowledge test at an FAA-approved knowledge testing center or have an existing non-student Part 61 pilot certificate. If qualifying under the latter provision, a pilot must have completed a flight review in the previous 24 months and must take a UAS online training course provided by the FAA. The TSA will conduct a security background check of all remote pilot applications prior to issuance of a certificate."

    Does this apply to us? (I haven't had enough time to read all 624 PAGES of new regulations). Or just those who plan to use drones commercially? Press Release – DOT and FAA Finalize Rules for Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems

    "The new rule, which takes effect in late August, offers safety regulations for unmanned aircraft drones weighing less than 55 pounds that are conducting non-hobbyist operations."
