...you need this certification.
If you fly your drone for any sort of compensation (whether it's cash or football tickets), you will need to a Remote Pilot Certificate with an sUAS Rating.
There's a lot of interest in starting a commercial drone business, but there is slightly more than 40,000 people who have gotten certified.
The FAA estimates there to be over 422,000 certified Remote Pilots by 2021.
So if you're doing the math, you'll see there is just 10% of the potential competition out there right now, making this the perfect time to start a business and get established.
Earning money with drones is simple - and there is a great demand for it. It's a great way to start earning a side income ($500-$1000/month) doing something you love.
