Drone Waivers - Part 107

A waiver is an official document issued by the FAA which approves certain operations of aircraft outside the limitations of a regulation. You may request to fly specific drone operations not allowed under part 107 by requesting an operational waiver. These waivers allow drone pilots to deviate from certain rules under part 107 by demonstrating they can still fly safely using alternative methods.

Here is the part 107 waiver application.

Here is the FAA part 107 fact sheet

Why might you need a waiver?

Here is a chart from the FAA federal aviation website.  There is great information on their site.

A few reasons that jump out are:

  • You want to fly over people (ex. a concert)
  • You want to go higher than 400 feet
  • You plan to fly your drone beyond the line of sight
  • You plan on throwing a drone light show
  • You want to fly your drone on a moving boat
  • Other
