Our three 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.

“This course was one of, if not the best, aviation training course I have attended in my years as a pilot. The instructors were professional and knowledgeable and made me very well equipped to further my UAS business.”  –Commercial Airline Professional Pilot and 2017 sUAS Commercial Remote Pilot Course participant
