Meet the Drone Pilot
Hello and welcome,
My name is Mark. I began my career as a Drone pilot in May 2017. As of December 2023, I have ~130 hours of flight experience and I own a DJI Mavic 2 Pro and a DJI Mavic 2 Zoom. Here is a recent video I recorded with my Mavic 2 Pro
How did I get into drones ? While one day shopping at BEST BUY, I was passing by the drone aisle and then spontaneously purchased a Yuneec Q500 drone. After I opened up the packaging, there was some documentation that led me to the FAA website. There I found information about how to become a drone pilot.
I began to study for the Part 107 test using the resources on this page. I took my first Part 107 test in April of 2017 at Norwood Airport Norwood, Massachusetts. To learn how to schedule your exam CLICK HERE.
I continue to learn every time I fly and recommend that you do as well. It is also important to learn about the Rules, Aviation, Weather, and how your drone operates and what its limitations are.
If you are new to drones, I encourage you to check out the links(click on #1) on THIS PAGE.
I enjoy routine practice flights to be sure I maintain and build on the skills of my flying. Feel free to contact me here if you have any comments, questions.
I strongly recommend every drone pilot to fly safely and responsibly. Click here for some fun drone stuff to learn about.
Remember..A Good pilot is always learning.
