Our Amazing Students Say It Best

Elliott Francis

Washington, D.C.

“Great course with easy-to-digest videos in each module. The practice tests were invaluable in helping me understand what areas I needed to focus on. Also, the customer service was phenomenal. Any questions I had, including one that was quite detailed, were quickly answered by the instructor. Thank you!”

Bill Holderby


“Drone Pilot Ground School is nothing short of excellent. When I took the real test, I felt super confident (not cocky!) and scored a 93%. This course was well laid out, organized, in slides, audio, print, notes…you could not ask for a better tool.”

Mike Skolnik


“Before I took it, I knew nothing, and I mean nothing, about how to read sectional maps, the different kinds of airspace and how they relate to flying drones, effects of weather on drones and the different kinds of weather patterns etc. I looked around for ways to study and pass the test, which I did on the first try, and your course was by far the best way.”

Scott Fredericksen


“I took three of the five exams on Drone Pilot Ground School and received a 91%, 88%, 88% and got a 90% on the actual FAA Knowledge Test. I completed the FAA Knowledge Test in 30 minutes with the exam proctor confirming that I had the highest score of the day.”

Joey Costanzo

Jefferson Township, PA

“Your dedication to help others proved to be extremely professional, and your passion for helping others succeed is unsurpassed. Everything from the actual course itself to the all the updates you provided throughout. You helped make it possible for me to pursue what I have been waiting for for a long time. Your course was spot on!”

Tom Cowper

DroneShot Aerial Imaging

“I appreciate the course, the way it was laid out and presented and the depth of information you put into it! A great resource and aid. I took the test along with two other guys who both scored lower than me and at least one of them had studied using one of your competitor’s courses. :)”

John Gussman

Sequim, WA

“I wanted to let you know that I think your course is without a doubt the best way to increase your chances to pass the FAA’s Aeronautical Knowledge Test. I could not imagine having to learn and decipher all the information on my own. Your email support is amazing!”

David Balfour

Murfreesboro, TN

“The regulations have “forced” me to have a certification for a part of my business where one was never before needed. I was less than excited to spend the extra time and money to have the permission to add aerial footage to my real estate listings. But, not only has your course already taught me that there is some logic to these regulations, but that I can use my education gained here to actually enhance my value to prospective clients.”

Tim Brown

Fort Lauderdale, FL

“I could not be happier with my decision to choose your company to help study for the Aeronautical Knowledge Test. All of the lectures, course information, slides, supplements, and links to useful resources have been well organized and laid out. Your customer service has been exemplary…the customer care that you and your company provide is above and beyond what would typically be expected.”
