Can I book a group of 4 or more?
At this time, we can not accommodate groups of 4 or more students in our classes. This is to ensure each student gets ample hands-on flight training time — if you have a larger group, consider splitting into smaller groups when booking. Thank you!
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.
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 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.
Is this a test prep class for the FAA Part 107 drone exam?
No — this is a hands-on drone flight class. If you want to get FAA-certified, check out our industry-leading Part 107 online test prep and training course.
