Public Agency Operations and Part 107

After consulting with a UAV lawyer and an FAA representative, I believe that:

  • Public Agencies (PAs) still have to operate under a COA
  • PAs can also operate non-Public Agency Operations (PAOs) under Part 107.

See pages 61-68 of the Rule for details

If a PA wishes to examine the roof of the court house for hail damage, a Part 107 operator working for the PA can perform the task.

If a PA wishes to conduct a SAR mission, or fly a UAV in support of fire fighting operations, they need a COA or to contract with a 333 exempt operator with the appropriate COA.
