The FAA confirmed in writing the fines that can be applied for a pilot who is unlicensed. The fine is $1,100 per occurrence/flight where imagery is used commercially. More importantly perhaps, the fine for the the real estate agent/business who hires an unlicensed pilot is $11,000. Of course, if you’re an agent/business who bought a drone and took the photos or video yourself, you will be liable for both fines.
Aerial Imagery of Maine is proud to announce we are Section 107 FAA licensed, fully insured and all drones are registered with the FAA.
