Who are the 333?

The333 are the pioneers in the commercial use of small UAS operations. The name comes from the section of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 where the FAA is authorized to exempt operators from rules that would prevent you from operating your small UAS in the aerial commercial space.
On the forums, you can share business and marketing tips with other members. Flight and equipment tips and reviews. When Part 107 rules become finalized, we can help each other to transition into becoming Part 107 Commercial UAS Operators.
