I recently bought a drone to start a small commercial aerial photo business. I have a pilot presently taking
the course for certification and to acquire the license. I will not personally be flying the drone, but will own it and run the business. Am I legal this way.
The pilot and operator of the drone will be required to pass the Part 107 Pilot examination and to be registered. The drone must also be properly marked with the registration information.
