Welcome back to Your Drone Questions Answered! In this episode, we're tackling a common question: Can a licensed drone pilot let someone without a license use their license to post commercial real estate photos?

Our host, John Dickow, chats with David Young from Drone Launch Academy to break down this topic. They dive into the FAA rules, discussing what's allowed and what's not when it comes to commercial drone photography.

David explains that while some people think it's okay for a non-licensed person to use a licensed pilot's credentials, it's crucial to follow the actual FAA regulations to avoid legal issues.

He walks us through the specific rules in Part 107.12, which outline when a non-licensed operator can legally fly a drone for commercial purposes under a licensed pilot's supervision.

Using real-life examples, David shows how these rules work in practice. He stresses the importance of the licensed pilot being directly involved and in control during the drone operation to stay compliant with FAA standards.

Throughout the conversation, John and David clear up common misunderstandings and provide practical advice for drone operators, whether experienced or new to the field.
