The training class was a great experience! Joey instilled confidence in me and provided encouragement during my entire training! The instructor had a wealth of knowledge and experience which made the class that much more enjoyable!

The class was super-informative. Adam was very friendly, knowledgeable, patient, eager to answer questions and was very committed to our understanding of material, topics and issues related to drone operation. Our instruction experience exceeded our expectations. As a former teacher (M.Ed.) it was clear that there was significant thought put into what was covered, in what order and how to present the material in ways that newbies to drone operation such as myself could “get” what was being discussed and tackle flying modules with confidence and enjoyment. It was WELL worth the money/investment and would strongly recommend such instruction to prospective drone pilots.

I really enjoyed the personal drone training class. It was the first time I’d actually flew a drone. I learned way more than I thought I would in such a short time. Thank you George. I’m hooked.

Fantastic! Great class! So glad I did it. I would have spent months getting as proficient as I did in 2 hours with the class. Instructor Tom was awesome!

It was a great experience! My instructor, Brad Pierce, provided a lot of information in a very digestible way. He shared a lot of anecdotal examples to reinforce what he was teaching. It was a very cold, blustery day, but he was able to teach me the fundamentals of flying the drone successfully. I would highly recommend him.

Henry M

Erik is great….friendly, warm & really did a great job of communicating the complexities of flying a drone to a very simple & easy to understand method. I’ve watched hours of YouTube videos but learned more in two hours with Erik!!

Frequently Asked

Questions

Can I book a group of 4 or more?

Yes — we’re happy to chat with your group about training options.  Email training@uavcoach.com or call us at (888) 626-9052  

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. If you have questions about the best professional drone models, we’re happy to help.

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.

Are you insured?

Yes — we hold an insurance policy that covers up to $1 million in liability during the course of your training class. If you bring your own drone to the training, while we would not insure any damage to the drone itself, our liability policy still covers you.

Is this training class right for me?

Our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and industries. If you’re looking to go deep into the DJI Go 4 or DJI Fly 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.

What's your cancellation policy?

Your flight training is 100% refundable if you cancel at least 3 days before your training date and 50% refundable if you cancel 2 days or less prior to your training date.
