UAS Pilot Training

Learn to fly Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)
Enroll in our FAA Part 107 remote pilot training program and get certified to fly unmanned aerial systems (UAS) commercially.

Flying a drone is a great hobby, but also a great business opportunity. Realtors, videographers, insurance adjusters and more have benefited from adding UAS services to their business model. But are you operating legally?

Flying for business?
If you are flying, or plan to fly UAS for commercial reasons, then you must obtain a FAA Remote Pilot Certificate. This consists of passing an FAA Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Drone Knowledge Test.

Flying for fun?
If you are flying as a hobby, then you aren’t required to have a Remote Pilot Certificate to operate your aircraft. However, recreational pilots can still benefit from this course to ensure they are operating safely and legally. 

Have you registered your drone?
Regardless of if your UAS is used for fun or business, registration is mandatory for equipment weighing between 0.55 pounds and 55 pounds. Register your aircraft here.
