FAA 333 Exemption Assistance Filing
By law, any aircraft operation in the national airspace requires a certificated and registered aircraft, a licensed pilot, and operational approval. Section 333 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 (FMRA) (PDF) grants the Secretary of Transportation the authority to determine whether an airworthiness certificate is required for a UAS to operate safely in the National Airspace System (NAS).
This authority is being leveraged to grant case-by-case authorization for certain unmanned aircraft to perform commercial operations prior to the finalization of the Small UAS Rule, which will be the primary method for authorizing small UAS operations once it is complete.
The Section 333 Exemption process provides operators who wish to pursue safe and legal entry into the NAS a competitive advantage in the UAS marketplace, thus discouraging illegal operations and improving safety. It is anticipated that this activity will result in significant economic benefits, and the FAA Administrator has identified this as a high priority project to address demand for civil operation of UAS for commercial purposes.
If you live in the United States and want to earn money as a professional drone pilot, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requires you / your business to apply for and to successfully obtain a 333 Exemption.
It’s a long story, but the FAA has been accepting these requests since late May 2014 and trying to figure out this whole drone / UAV certification thing for a while now. By the beginning of 2015, only about a dozen companies had been approved to fly drones commercially. At less than a year later, and that number has skyrocketed up to 2000+ approved exemptions.
