If you want to operate a drone commercially, you need to get a license. According to records obtained by MarketWatch through a Freedom of Information Act request, there have only been four FAA licensing enforcements, of which only one was related to flying a commercial drone without the proper licensing. An FAA spokesperson said in an email to Gizmodo that it “strongly encourages compliance,” and that they “actively enforce all Part 107 regulations, over which we have exclusive authority,” noting that pilots who purposefully violate these rules might see a fine of up to ,000 per violation. Thing is, And passing FAA’s test to receive a drone pilots license is reportedly a giant pain in the ass.
