The term certified is a general term currently used by AV-Network to indicate that people and companies listed in our drone operator directory have section 333 approval from the FAA to fly drones legally. AV-Network is currently developing a “Best Practices” whitepaper that offers a framework to promote safety and proficiency. We encourage pilots that are interested in promoting safety and professionalism to contact us and join the effort. We are fortunate to have the FAA’s main “UAS” research and development department also located in New Jersey. AV-Network is happy to work with the FAA as well as Rutgers, NJIT and Stockton University in developing standards that may influence new rules expected this year from the Federal Aviation Administration.
