Drone Pilot Certification Test Prep

Keep up with changing Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requirements to remain ahead of the curve among commercial drone pilots. This short-term training is specifically focused on preparing prospective drone pilots for the FAA Remote Pilot Certification Test. Successful completion of this test is required for those who plan to operate drones for any commercial or business purpose.

Beyond drone-specific material, participants gain an understanding of much of the ground-school information covered in the FAA’s knowledge test. Topics covered include drone regulations, airspace classification, interpretation of sectional navigation charts, operating requirements, and flight restrictions, aviation weather sources and effects, small unmanned aircraft loading and performance, emergency procedures, aeronautical decision-making and crew resource management, radio communication procedures, physiological effects of drugs and alcohol, airport operations, and maintenance and pre-flight inspection procedures.

The training fee includes a workbook, sectional chart, FAA test supplement, 50 FAA sample test questions, and eight hours of instruction. Actual FAA testing must be administered at an authorized testing center and is NOT included in the training fee.
