ABOUT 400,000 JOBS ARE BEING CREATED BY THE DRONE INDUSTRY IN JUST A FEW YEARS

Personal hobbyists, police, fire and rescue personnel, engineers, real estate agents, photographers, roofers and other professionals are using unmanned aerial systems (UAS) for tasks ranging from racing and photography to surveillance and damage assessment. During this intensive two-day class, highly qualified UAS experts provide industry-leading classroom training and prepare drone pilots for the Part 107 Drone License exam. Topics include regulations, airspace, weather, loading and performance, and operations.

To obtain a remote pilot certificate, a drone pilot must pass the FAA’s airman knowledge test (conducted at an FAA-certified testing center). The Federal Aviation Administration needs to make sure that all commercial drone pilots have the ability to act responsibly, coordinate with Air Traffic Control in case of an emergencies, read aeronautical maps, and abide by all general aviation regulations and specific regulations pertaining to UAS. (Note: This is a test prep program. The examination is not administered as part of the program.)
