I have my commercial helicopter license and my understanding is, because I have my commercial FAA rating I am allowed to film aerial photography with my rc helicopter for compensation.

From what I have read, as long as you have the commercial FAA pilot certificate this authorizes you to fly the rc heli to earn money doing aerial photography.

I have an Airstar Mongoose and fully intend to use it for this purspose as soon as I can get it set up. I believe you just have to contact the nearest control tower and report the area you will be flying in and let them know when you have landed.

I think more concrete information will come out next year. I don't think a commercial license should be necessary, but for right now it is. Good luck and keep me posted on what you guys find. Thanks.

You still need a COA from the FAA to be legal.

The COA is specific to:
1. Your qualifications
2. The aircraft your'll be using (your mongoose) and its airworthiness.
3. The EXACT area of operations.

There should be someone answering the phone at the FAA office issuing the COAs.

Steven (Aerialskycam) has his license and I don't think it matters until the FAA gets their act together and figures out bad they want to regulate this portion of the airspace.

That information is false.

The FAA has sent cease and desist letters to r/c aerial companies that were owned by licensed pilots, it made no difference even after they told the FAA they were licensed pilots.

What are the pertinent regulations and documents for operating an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS)?

There are several regulations and documents that can help you with operating UAS:
FAA JO 7610.4
FAA UAPO Interim Operational Approval Guidance 08-01 (PDF, 1.47 MB)
Federal Registry Entry “FAA-2006-25714” (PDF, 20 KB)
FAA Order 8130.34 (PDF, 214 KB)

What is the difference between an Unmanned Aircraft (UA), a Remotely Operated Aircraft (ROA), and an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)?

ROA and UAV were terms previously used to identify unmanned aircraft. Currently the FAA and most of the international community uses the term “UAS.”

Can a civilian company operate an UAS as part of a business?

Currently, civilian companies may not operate a UAS as part of a business without obtaining a Special Airworthiness Certificate - Experimental Category (SAC-EC). However, this SAC-EC is very limited in scope of operational use. Contact FAA for details or see FAA Order 8130.34.

Who can receive a COA to fly a UA in the NAS?

Only public agencies operating an unmanned aircraft.

What is a “Public Agency?”

Any agency that operates a public aircraft (14 CFR Part 1.1). If you receive funding from the federal government at some level, you are probably a “Public Agency.” A public agency can never operate under the guidelines of Advisory Circular 91-57 (Model Aircraft Operating Standards).

The problem is that the FAA is so misguided in what they consider a UAV or Drone it's unreal.

The FAA considers r/c helis UAV's.

According to the FAA, "sponsored" pilots cannot receive any sort of monetary compensation which includes kits, parts, blades and obviously money. This is considered "commercial flying" according to the FAA.

The FAA needs a serious education about these things.

Remember, a COA only applies to a Public Entity, IOW Law Enforcement, Gov't agency, etc.

A private individual CANNOT apply for or obtain a COA.

The only thing you can apply for is an Experimental Certificate, which CANNOT be used for Commercial purposes. The fact that you are a Licensed full scale Pilot makes no difference whatsoever....

Chris is correct. Furthermore, you cannot use an Experimental to make money either unless you are a government contractor and you fudge the paperwork.

We have a colossal screwing coming from the FAA, DOD contractors. Even the DoD contractors who have been trying to lock us out stand to have the rules blow up in their face.

It's stunning that here in the US we have to deal with so much red tape.

Other counties have made it so easy and there haven't been any issues.

Ugghh, rules and laws will be the death of us.

That is crazy. In the past, before 9/11 you were able to use an rc helicopter for professional aerial photography. That is ridiculous!

I have my commercial helicopter license and will find a way to legally do aerial photography with my rc helicoper.

Otherwise, I guess I will just have to do it from the full scale bird, Enstrom F28A, which rents for $300 per hour.

The FAA needs to change this becuase it is NOT fair to the little guy. You could make a LOT of money doing professional aerial photograpy with an rc helicopter.

Keep us posted. Hopefully they make some good and fair decisions in 2014 that will cut through all the red tape.

Thanks.
