"LW, You might try contacting other companies that offer this service, and subcontract through them. This is the approach I'm taking in some cases. They get to explore the technology and get a piece of the pie, and you don't have to worry…"

Hi LW,

My business partner has his commercial pilot's license, one of our "contributors" has his sport license, one of our volunteers at the FD is renewing his private license and our chief's is still current, and I plan on kidnapping my younger sister during her college breaks to use hers as well. If there is one thing we're not short on, it's licensed pilots. 

I filed the exemption for the company, not myself.
