Paper Airplane Pilot Granted FAA License for Commercial Flight

Here is an interesting article in Forbes regarding the FAA’s granting a commercial license to a paper airplane pilot, called a Section 333.  As ridiculous as this article is, I agree some kind of regulation is necessary for many operators of flying vehicles of all types, not just drones.

The technology is advancing so fast I can’t help but think that the FAA and any other federal agencies are and will continue to be 1-2 years behind. States are taking matters into their own hands and quite often putting into place laws which are completely outrageous and over-the-top, which will generally be ignored by drone pilots.

I’m looking into getting my own Section 333 license for commercial flying. I do plan to fly for money at some point, though so far I have yet to bill that first client.
