These rules are specified in 14 CFR part 107 and address sUAS classification, certification, and operating rules.

References to part 61 pilot certificate holders specifically refer to holders of pilot certificates other than student pilot certificates. Part 61 pilot certificates include sport pilot, recreational pilot, private pilot, commercial pilot and air transport pilot certificates.
