The first week of December 2017, the FAA confirmed in writing the fines that can be applied as follows:
For a pilot who is unlicensed, the fine is $1,100 per occurrence/flight where imagery is used commercially.
The fine for the the real estate agent who hires an unlicensed pilot is $11,000.
An agent who bought a drone and took the photos or video themselves would be liable for both fines.
ALWAYS USE A LICENSED DRONE PILOT
