My instructor Andrew was fantastic – very knowledgeable, very patient and an overall great person. He took the time to help me understand the safety, FAA regulations, pre-flight checks and most importantly, provided valued instruction. I was nervous because my job just tapped me on the shoulder to learn how to fly a drone and Andrew gave me the confidence to fly by myself within 45 minutes.

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.

Unbelievable value. Tom Peden was an incredible instructor and I can’t think of a way to improve his course. I went in with a minimal amount of knowledge and was very unsure of my drone and it’s operation. I feel very comfortable with the operation of the drone now and have a much better understanding of the laws, regulations and where I can/can’t fly. I can’t recommend this course enough.

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.

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.

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!

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

I had a wonderful class with Jeff Keller. He was super knowledgeable and patient with me as I got the feel for the drone for the first time. He did amazing at explaining all of the basics, as well as a bit in depth, given how I’d like to use my drone. I was well listened to with questions and concerns and as an excellent teacher should – he challenged me, but made me build confidence with my very first flight. I am totally impressed!! I am excited to build on what I have learned and would recommend Jeff to anyone who wants to learn how to use a drone. Thank you, again for all that you have provided me and the confidence to keep going!

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!!

Roger was absolutely awesome! He’s professional, courteous, safe, came prepared with what I requested to learn, and went above and beyond to give me a fantastic training experience. He helped me with specific drone settings I was curious about, improved my flying confidence, & taught me some safety techniques. 5 out of 5 stars for Roger no doubt!
