Expectations with your 44807 Exemption
The FAA has four Federal requirements to fly your drone legally. They are as follows:
1. a 44807 Exemption 2. an 8050 for your N# 3. a Class 3 medical 4. a 137
1. The 44807 is a very lengthy and challenging paperwork submission to get it right. That is why we have the best in the industry providing that submission for you and dealing with all the FAA issues. This process takes between 3-4 months to receive. Once we have filed, you will receive an FAA docket number to look up. You can ask to "share" on that docket, meaning you will be notified of any changes.
The site has a link for the following two requirements that each Pilot must meet.
2. The 8050 is a submission for your N# that needs to be sent to the FAA, and all the instructions are on the form. File the form along with your notary and $10 to the FAA. You have up to a year to fly on your submission until you receive your official N# registration.
3. The Class 3 medical must be taken in front of an AME, and a link is on the site to find your closest AME Dr. Do not put your zip code in the locator, just the state. If there are no Dr's in your zip code, the system will not look any further.
4.Finally, the 137 application can not be applied for until you receive your 44807 Exemption. After you receive your Exemption, it is a simple process to go online and file for your 137. The instructions will be in your Exemption letter for those steps.
