Just to fly drones for hire, for a company.

The FAA requires you to have a Certificate of Authorization. These all vary depending on the type of operations you’d be doing, what location, and the company doing these operations. But initially, they usually require first and foremost a Sport or Private Pilot certificate. It’s hard to pin point exactly what you’d need, which is why the FAA link is a pretty good area to start http://www.faa.gov/uas

Ok, can King Schools issue some-type of certificate required for this? I’m already a private pilot. I just need a small pointer.

Well, no we don’t issue drone certificates, per se. We don’t actually have any drone related courses either. Best bet would to look deeper into what UAS Operations you’re trying to get into and see what they require from you as a pilot. Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help 🙂
