For this assignment, submit an essay, in your own words, explaining the difference between operating under Part 107 and operating with a Part 107 waiver. Do not discuss model aircraft and RC flying, but, instead, focus upon the commercial application of an sUAS operation with respect to Part 107. Your essay should explain what a Certificate of Authorization is, what a 107 Exemption is, and what a Special Airworthiness Certificate is.
Review the FAA web pages for Part 107 Operations and operations that require waivers:
- Unmanned Aircraft Systems – Part 107 (under 55 lbs) (Links to an external site.)
- Waiver Required (Operations outside of Part 107) (Links to an external site.)
- Your essay should follow APA format.
- The essay should be at least three pages, not including the title page or reference page.
