His friendly and warm personality made the instruction fun. Elliott shared a lot of information with us and gave us good guidance. I would highly recommend Elliott and will keep an eye out if he will provide future instruction on things like taking pics and videos with your drone, etc. Thank you.

Frequently Asked


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.

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.

Can I bring a friend, colleague, or family member with me?

Yes! A shared experience with a friend or family member is a great way to learn together and have fun. Our instructors will tailor the experience for your group. You can purchase a group session of 2 people for $395 for 2.5 hours (save $97 per person!) or a group session of 3 people for $495 for 3 hours (save $130 per person!)

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.

Lee F

Elliot was our instructor and was amazing. His knowledge around safety was paramount and the hands on drone practice was fun and eye opening. Drones are much more easier to operate today when compared to the drones of old. My son and I have already purchased 2 drones and plan to get certified in order to incorporate drone services with the business that I currently own. Thank you for the instruction.

Flying your Drone In NEVADA

Before your training class, it might be helpful to familiarize yourself with the drone laws in Nevada. If you are flying a drone for fun, you are considered a ‘recreational’ pilot and should be following the Recreational Flyers & Modeler Community-Based Organizations rules. You’ll need to complete The Recreational UAS Safety Test (TRUST), register your drone, and understand where you can and cannot fly. If you are flying a drone for ‘commercial’ purposes, you’ll need to get your FAA drone pilot certificate. This takes about 15-20 hours of studying and requires you to pass a 60-question multiple-choice exam. Here’s more information about how to get your drone pilot license. And for fun, here’s a list of the best places to fly your drone in Las Vegas. Blue skies and safe flying out there!
