Do I need to hold an aviation licence?

March 26, 2020 /

Short Answer: No. We do not require a licence of any kind.

Long Answer: SkyStock is based on aerial photos which can be taken by a number of different methods including poles, hang gliders, drones, ultralights, helicopters, fixed wing aircraft and satellites. If you are doing the flying yourself you may require a licence depending on the rules of your local aviation authority. SkyStock will leave the regulating to the regulators, as we would rather spend our time admiring the great aerial photos that our contributors produce.

Note: We do appreciate the extra professionalism shown by licenced operations and we offer a greater commission rate to those who are licenced.
