The class was fun and informative. Martin taught me things about the drone I wouldn’t have thought about as a novice operator – he was also able to answer all of my questions. I had lots of flying time which was great!

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.

The training was much more fun and easy than I expected. Andy is very much a gifted instructor. I have no doubts that I chose the correct school for my drone training.

Flying Your Drone in Tennessee
Before your training class, it might be helpful to familiarize yourself with the drone laws in Tennessee.
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 register your drone and to 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 Nashville. Blue skies and safe flying out there!
