Students/Vendor UAS Procedures

Students

Students that wish to use UAS must be FAA Part 107 licensed as Remote Pilots if they receive any type of compensation for the flight. Registration for both the FAA and EH&S is required. Prior to any flights an online request with a flight plan must be submitted. Once the flight request / plan has been reviewed a permit for the flight can be issued. Currently, there are no provisions for recreational flying on our main campus due to the location of nearby hospitals and airports with significant air traffic.

Vendors

Vendors that wish to use UAS on any UF campus or for any UF Department must be FAA Part 107 licensed as Remote Pilots. Registration for both the FAA and EH&S is required. Prior to any flights an online request with a flight plan must be submitted. Once the flight request / plan has been reviewed a permit for the flight can be issued. Requirements also include that the University of Florida be named as an additional insured on the operator’s policy with a limit of 1,000,000.00.
