What kind of drone will I get to fly?

Our coaches train with DJI equipment — you’ll be flying either a DJI Mavic, DJI Phantom, or DJI Inspire model.

Can I bring my own drone?

Yes — many of our students prefer to fly with their own equipment. We’ll ask you to make sure that your firmware is up-to-date, to fully charge your transmitter, phone/tablet and to bring extra batteries. We’ll also ask that you’ve registered your drone through the FAADroneZone portal.

Do I need to be FAA Part 107 certified?

No — our instructors are certified and insured under our company policy, so you don’t have to be. If you’re interested in becoming a certified drone pilot, check out our FAA certification guide. We’d love to help you study!

What about inclement weather?

We won’t make you fly in the rain! We’ll work with you and your local flight instructor to reschedule.

Our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and industries. If you’re looking to go deep into the DJI Go 4 app, explore intelligent flight modes and fail-safe settings and to really understand what to do before, during, and after your flight to not only fly safely but to comply with the regulations, then yes, we’d love to see you book time with us.
