As of April 6th, 2021, you no longer need to apply for the Part 107.29 Daylight Operations waiver to fly your drone at night.
You’ll still need to have anti-collision lights on your drone and will need to be tested to understand how flying your drone at night presents unique challenges.
Night operations questions will make their way into both the initial Part 107 drone certification exam and the new recurrent online training.
Here’s more information on how to take the new recurrent online training to renew your Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate.
NOTE: The FAA has started rolling out instant airspace authorizations to fly at night in controlled airspace via LAANC (Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability). Click here to learn more about night LAANC authorizations.
