Our five day Part 107 course is designed to prepare professionals for the written FAA exam. 14 CFR Part 107 is the new FAA Regulation governing commercial Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems, or sUAS. This new requirement requires Remote Pilot in Command (RPIC) operators to take an FAA written exam if they do not hold a manned pilot certificate.


Upon completion of the sUAS Commercial Remote Pilot Training participants will be prepared to complete the FAA written exam to receive a Remote Pilot in Command (RPIC) certificate from the FAA. Attendees will be able to:

  • Adhere to FAA rules and regulations pertinent to small unmanned aircraft operations
  • Complete the FAA written examination
  • Set up small unmanned aircraft operations within FAA regulations
  • Apply safety practices during flight of small unmanned aircraft
  • Demonstrate proficient knowledge of UAV flight
NEW Course Add-Ons!

Attendees may add additional training opportunities to their registration. Both or either option may be selected on the registration form for the sUAS Commercial Pilot Training course.

This additional course offering provides training specific to UAS night operations. Students will complete 2 hours of classroom instruction covering flight basics at night, necessary waivers and exemptions for night flight, and how to setup a night operation.
