Drone Pilot Ground School – Limited Availability

We offer comprehensive online training as a test prep course for the FAA’s drone licensing exam. Once you’ve gone through our course and you’re scoring well on the practice tests, you will schedule an appointment at an official test center in your area and take the exam in person. Our students use drones to conduct a wide variety of missions, from real estate marketing and insurance adjustments to construction site progress monitoring and utility tower inspections.

Here are a set of prerequisites that is essential for students to successfully complete the online Drone Pilot Ground School:

  1.  Age Requirement: The student should be at least 16 years old, in line with the minimum age set by the FAA for obtaining a drone pilot license.
  2. English Proficiency: Since the course material, regulations, and communication are usually in English, proficiency in reading, writing, and understanding English is essential.
  3. Basic Technical Knowledge: Understanding of basic electronics and mechanics would be advantageous, as drones are complex pieces of technology. A familiarity with concepts such as basic physics (gravity, lift, drag, thrust, etc.) can also be helpful.
  4. Computer Literacy: As this is an online course, students must have basic computer skills and reliable access to a computer and the internet. They should be able to navigate the online learning platform, download and upload documents, participate in online discussions, and communicate via email.
  5. Drone Ownership or Access: Although not necessary for the theoretical aspects of the course, having access to a drone can greatly aid in understanding practical applications and concepts. If this isn’t feasible, a good alternative might be for the student to use drone simulator software.
  6. Mathematical Skills: Basic knowledge of mathematics (particularly algebra and geometry) is beneficial in navigation, understanding drone specifications, and flight planning.
  7. Spatial Awareness and Visualization: The ability to understand and interpret maps, charts, and 3D space is critical for drone navigation and safety.
  8. Physical Health: For the future, when students might apply for an actual drone license, FAA requires a basic health check, mainly related to vision and ability to make sound judgements.
  9. Interest in Drones and Aerial Technology: A genuine interest in drones and aerial technology would definitely be a plus, ensuring students are motivated and engaged throughout the course.
  10. Adherence to Safety and Ethical Guidelines: A willingness to follow safety procedures and adhere to ethical guidelines related to drone use is crucial. This is not just for the successful completion of the course, but also for future responsible drone operation.
  11. Knowledge of the FAA’s Part 107: While this isn’t necessarily a prerequisite, it would certainly help students to have a basic understanding of the FAA’s Part 107 rules, which govern the use of drones for commercial purposes in the U.S. Some of these rules could be integrated into the curriculum of your ground school, but it could also be helpful for students to familiarize themselves with these regulations ahead of time.

Most of our students have full-time jobs and take 2-3 weeks to get through each of our lessons and full-length practice tests. It ends up being about 15-20 hours of total in-seat computer based study time. Since you get lifetime access to the course materials, you can work through them at your own pace.
