Part 107 Drone Pilot

Zing - Brooklyn, NY

Contract

Zing is looking for drone pilots to make deliveries using DJI drones. Make a flexible income with your DJI drone by making deliveries from local businesses. Think of it like Uber Eats, but the drivers on our platform are drone pilots.

Unmanned aircraft, such as drones, are increasing in popularity and have a range of applications. They can be used to gather weather data, to collect intelligence information or to produce aerial photographs. A drone pilot is someone who is capable of effectively operating a drone. This involves the ability to have a drone safely take off and land. Drone pilots must also keep drones on course and ensure they are operated safely and avoid collisions.

Drone pilots' duties include checking the drones before they are flown to ensure that they are operating properly and monitoring the drone while it is being handled. They plan routes for drones to fly and then navigate the drones along those paths. Some drone operators work for the military and are responsible for gathering information on enemy troops or for maps; others may be involved with producing aerial photographs for other purposes.

Drone pilots on our platform are required to hold a Part 107 license in the United States. If you do not have your Part 107 license yet but are planning on getting one, please still consider applying to Zing while you complete the process.
