Courses

Most new students start with the Part 107 Exam Prep course.  This will give you everything you need to successfully pass the FAA’s Remote Pilot Certificate Exam and get your Part 107 drone license.

Well, that depends on how you want to pay.  Memberships start at just $8.33/mo (if paid annually) and include all training and content for as long as you’re a member.  If memberships aren’t your thing, you can purchase the course outright and access it forever.

If you successfully complete all required portions of the training and pass the quizzes, you will receive a Certificate of Completion!

If you have a question about the course material or something drone related, you have four options:

General

If you plan to fly your drone commercially, you do need a Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate.  If you want to fly strictly for fun, you just need to register your drone with the FAA. 

Probably.  If your drone is between 0.55lb and 55lb. you will need to register your drone with the FAA.  This includes most publicly available drones from companies like DJI, Yuneec, Parrot, and others.  If you’re flying as a hobbyist (Section 336) you only need to register once for all your drones.  If you are flying under Part 107, then you need to register and mark each drone individually.  You can do this through the FAA’s Drone Zone website.

This question is pretty complicated and depends on whether you are flying Section 336 (hobby) or Part 107 (non-hobby).  In general, you can fly up to 400ft. in Class G airspace.  You might be altitude limited in Controlled Airspace and will need prior approval before flying there.   We recommend getting an app like Kittyhawk.io to help show you where you can fly. 

Drones are pretty safe but accidents can happen. Liability Insurance will cover any damage caused by your drone and Hull Insurance will cover the costs of repairing or replacing the aircraft itself.  Check out SkyWatch.ai for great rates for on demand and monthly insurance policies.
