    Do you think that our dispatcher license will qualify us to fly drones?

    While the FAA has no clue about how to license drone pilots and guys taking hot air balloon courses to hopefully qualify as a drone pilot do you think that the FAA will allow dispatchers to use their license to become drone pilots?
    Hope for the best plan for the worst

    What kind of drones? For the largest kind I suspect they piggy back on how the air force qualifies their drone pilots. In that case I don't think a dx license will cut it.

    Since the dispatcher certificate has nothing to do with piloting anything, I doubt it.
