The FAA has published the Part 107 rules light drone use for commercial purposes including photography and video.  Treetop Academy will help you prepare to take the FAA written examination to obtain your Remote Pilot Airman Certificate with a Small UAS Rating.

Treetop Academy will prepare you with the training that you will need to satisfy the FAA requirements for light drone flight.
You don't have to be a photographer or videographer to use drone aircraft as a camera platform. Real estate agents, farmers, miners, law enforcement... the possible uses for aerial imaging are many. New technology is making aerial photography and videography more accessible than ever, but it's important to know the laws, rules, and best practices to ensure your success.

Your Treetop Academy instructors are experienced  flight instructors.
