UAS Professional Pilots was established to help drone pilots be successful in business.

At the end of August 2016, the FAA released their new rules for commercial drone operations. These new rules changed everything, and opened up the industry to just about anyone that had the desire to make money flying a drone. However, the desire, the certification, and the ability to fly a drone is not enough to succeed in the drone business.

UAS Professional Pilots was formed to address the business of drones and help it’s members succeed. It is not a big corporation with high powered CEOs and lots of employees. It’s the vision of Ken Hanes who is a drone pilot, private pilot, and an career entrepreneur who currently runs his own drone company. Ken started his business operating under a 333 exemption. Like most in a new industry, Ken had to figure out how to be successful in the drone business. Ken formed UAS Professional Pilots to share expertise, and experience, to provide a short cut to success for other drone pilots.

Many companies offer test preparation services and flight training. There are countless online job sourcing companies that provide leads to pilots. And there is a never ending stream of advice that comes from social media. We think we provide something unique, because of the information we offer, benefits we provide, and our focus on running a drone business.

We look forward to having you on the team.
