There are two pathways in attaining a remote pilot license with the FAA: One for a person who has never had a pilot’s license before (airplane/helicopter/balloon), and another for those who already have an FAA pilot’s license.
The differences in the pathways have to do with the level of knowledge that the FAA wants applicants for remote pilot to have. The FAA gives credit to already licensed pilots, yet still requires that they pass a knowledge test that pertains specifically to UAS/UAV operations. We can fast-track pilots to completing their application and taking the exam. You'll be a licensed UAV pilot in no time!
For those who have never held a pilot’s license, the FAA wants you to understand several key knowledge areas that relate to piloting a UAV/UAS in the airspace system. The subject areas range from and touch on topics that are covered in your ground schooling study to be a licensed airplane, helicopter, glider, or balloon pilot. Such topics include Federal Aviation Regulations, national airspace system, weight and balance or loading of the aircraft, maintenance, weather and other detailed items.
We are here to help you and want the airspace above us to be as safe as possible. We have taken the subject topics and broken them down into concise easy-to-learn blocks that will help you to easily pass your knowledge test. Our drone classes can range from the Part 107 prep course, that should be able to be completed within one to two days; as well as outdoor flying courses that provide hands-on flight training where you will implement the various topics of the Part107 knowledge course that you should already know. You will be able to read an FAA sectional map or terminal area chart to determine where you can legally fly. You can come to us or we can go to you. We have trained pilots all over Florida. We can come to your company and present the courses to several employees at a time at discounted rates for multiple students. Whatever works best for you! We like to stress that we want to keep YOU, as well as the public at large, SAFE with regard to any flying activity. We want to be responsible participants in the airspace system. As our industry is in its infancy, now is the perfect time to create responsible, professional drone pilots. You can be one of them.
