In August, DJI announced two of their drones would get C1 certificates. All the updates and paperwork are done, and you can get your Mavic 3 / 3 Cine C1 certificate.
DJI states in their press release:
The C1 certificate for the Mavic 3 and Mavic 3 Cine brings a number of advantages. Users can fly in the new A1 Open Category and will no longer have to pass the complex and costly A2 “Remote Piloting License” exam. They will have more freedom to fly in environments they have been restricted from without the C1 certificate – unless obtaining special permission after an additional lengthy administrative process.
Here’s a quick guide to get you going. I updated my drone and applied for my certificate yesterday, and it took me about 10 minutes. Now I have to wait about 20 days to get my C1 labels.
