Today’s episode is about dealing with unlicensed pilots. How do you convince these illegal pilots to get their Part 107 certification? And, will you run into serious trouble if you fly unlicensed?
Our caller, Michael is prospecting new customers. And he is running into folks who are flying without Part 107 certification. What is a smooth but effective way of convincing these people to get their Part 107 certification?
We discuss the repercussions of operating as an unlicensed pilot. Learn how FAA is becoming stricter with enforcement’s. And, how you are foolishly running a huge risk by operating without a Part 107 license. Thanks to Michael for the question. Fly Safe!
