Our instructors teach real-world examples for flight patterns, cameras, and provide detailed information on how to make your business a success. Our detailed case examples are covered in the class to provide an experience not available anywhere else in the market today. Our pilots share on-the-job experiences with a range of flights from tower, building and dam inspections to pipelines, and geo-referenced photo stitching and advanced 3D photo imagery.

Become an expert in commercial and engineering applications including agriculture, mapping, surveying, inspections (structure, tower, systems) aerial photography and more! In addition to flight training, you will also learn about business strategy, safety, and FAA regulatory compliance.  Our Commercial UAV Pilot Training School Course is designed for commercial users of UAV systems for inspections, mining operations, geological mapping and aerial video and photography. All students who successfully complete the course will be given a Factory UAV Pilot Training School Certificate. Use your Pilot Training Certificate as a competitive advantage and to obtain insurance, financing, business licensing and more!   

UAS Flight Training & Remote Pilot Certificate Prep Course

The path towards becoming a UAS (or UAV, Drone) pilot begins here.

Register today for our UAS Flight Training & Remote Pilot Certificate Prep Course.

The FAA Certified Flight Instructors (CFI) have developed a 40 hour comprehensive course that combines both UAS flight training and ground school instruction. The UAS flight training module gives students the tools, resources, and experience to confidently launch a professional UAS business for either commercial or public operations. The ground school module focuses on preparing students for the Part 107 Aeronautical Knowledge Test (AKT) by teaching content that directly applies to professional UAS pilots. The instructors are committed to helping you achieve your UAS training and certification goals.

UAS Flight Training 20 hours

Students from all backgrounds and experience levels will gain valuable industry knowledge and hands-on experience learning how to fly professional-grade unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) both manually and autonomously. The instructors incorporate real-world experience to help students conduct search and rescue missions, inspections, data collection, and data processing.


Every student gets to keep an indoor UAS trainer that is used to learn fundamental aircraft control.

Instructors begin teaching basic techniques and progressively introduce more advanced flight maneuvers throughout the week.


The instructors strive to provide students with as much flight experience as possible.

“Flight experience develops flight proficiency.”

Of the 20 hours allotted for flight training, 16+ hours are allocated towards logging flight time.


RDASS Ground Station


The purpose of flying a UAS for commercial or public use is to collect actionable data.

Whether students are perusing careers in UAS inspection, surveying, photogrammetry, geospatial, and⁄or search and rescue, excellent mission planning and execution is critical to a successful outcome. Instructors will present real-world mission scenarios where students and instructors work together to plan and execute the mission.


Data management is often an over looked challenge for many UAS pilots. HSE provides useful techniques to manage and process data into useful and actionable deliverables.
  • Point Cloud
  • Orthomosaic
  • DTM or DMS
  • Contours
  • Volumetric Survey
  • RAW or JPG
  • MP4 Video
  • Logs (TXT)

Students receive a Certificate of Flight Training Completion at the end of the course.

Remote Pilot Certificate Prep 20 hours

Per Title 14 CFR Parts 61, 91, and 107 “A person operating a small UAS must hold a remote pilot airmen certificate with a small UAS rating.” The pilot instructors offer the experience, knowledge, and authority to prepare students for the Aeronautical Knowledge Exam. The ground school module in combination with flight training gives students a thorough perspective of airspace and how to share it responsibly.

Remote Pilot Prep

The National Airspace System (NAS) is the busiest and most complex airspaces in the world. There are many moving parts including a new regulatory environment.

As you continue to read on, education is paramount to becoming certified.


Students learn how to read aeronautical charts to identify airspace classifications, obstructions, restricted airspace, controlled airspace, and other information applicable to UAS operations.

Knowing airspace is the responsibility of those who occupy it.

Communication and Authorization

UAS flight in certain classifications of airspace requires prior authorization from the ATC. Learn about terms, definitions, and resources to communicate with appropriate personal. Additionally, learn about filing NOTAMs and locating TFRs.

Risk Assessment

Part 107 outlines rules that must be followed when flying UAS for both commercial and public missions. Learn about other factors that affect pre-flight planning and mission execution.

The pilot instructors will also provide valuable techniques to assess risk and avoid disaster.


Obvious environmental conditions can affect UAS mission work. Its conditions that aren’t that obvious that commonly put remote pilots at risk. Learn how to assess environmental conditions that give pilots peace of mind.

Take a Ride

Students who attend the Flight Training and UAS Remote Pilot Certificate Prep course are given an opportunity to ride in a manned airplane alongside one of our certified pilots. The experience provides another perspective of the airspace that both manned and unmanned aircraft share.
