It seems that Alon Sicherman has found a loop-hole of sorts, for getting a pilot’s license to fly a UAS. It costs 1/2 to 1/3 of a pilot’s license, and just like flying a plane, has very little to do with flying a multi-rotor for photography purposes. The article does point out that Alon has learned a lot of background information about flight, that will help him with his UAS flying. I would think Balloons (and possibly gliders) would be the closest to flying a UAV since they are greatly affected by the weather and small changes in the atmosphere.
