Today’s episode is about gauging piloting skills. Is the FAA successful in accurately gauging the skill level of a drone pilot? What are some tricks for determining that a drone pilot knows his stuff?
Our caller has come up with a great question today. How do you determine if a drone pilot is really good at what he does? Does getting a Part 107 certification validate a pilot’s skills? We discuss some Tips and Tricks which can help you answer this question. You will also learn how Drone U can help you improve your piloting skills. Thanks to the caller for the question. Fly safe!
