I went through the training program before the FAA test was released on August 29, 2016. The training was thorough, and although the class time, in and of itself, would not be enough to pass the exam, it did give me all of the tools and direction needed to study in order to pass the test on the first go around.

Be prepared for a difficult exam, and remember that you need to retain this information for safe flying and re-certification every two years. Tim and the team were knowledgeable and helpful how to navigate the pain in the back procedures to get your license and to get your drone correctly registered.

I would highly recommend the school for anyone seeking a commercial license to fly a drone for a living or even for a real estate agent looking to improve the marketing of their properties.

The investment was well worth the money, and it will move your career forward for a small expense.

In 2016, the FAA issued Part 107 Drone Operations Regulations. The FAA now requires an aeronautical knowledge test for those people who do not hold an FAA Pilot Certificate.
