What is the FAA 333 exemption?

Long story short, the Section 333 exemption was what drone pilots used to operate drones commercially from 2014 to 2016. It’s a process that no longer exists and is no longer required for the commercial operation of drones.

In August 2016, the FAA’s new Part 107 regulatory framework went into effect to replace the Section 333 exemption.
