FAA Remote Pilot Knowledge Test Class

In-Person FAA Remote Pilot Certification Airman Knowledge Test Course

Per website, there are certain requirements to becoming a Drone Pilot.  At Aero Drone Resources, we offer training courses that will help you pass the FAA Knowledge Exam by offering either One day UAS Ground School or Two day program that includes Hands-On Scenario based Training as well.

As our Trainers are also Airplane Certified Flight Instructors, we can assist you with filling out the FAA’s IACRA system so that you can obtain your temporary remote pilot certificate sooner.

In-Person UAS Ground School will provide you with all information needed to successfully pass FAA Airman Knowledge Test which is required for any Commercial UAS operation.

FAA expects you to know all regulations and other information needed to make a Go/No-Go decision for safe operation of UAS.

This One Day classroom is held monthly at various locations and is limited to 10 students per class.  In-Person UAS Ground School is priced at $395 per student not including testing fees which are paid separately to authorized testing providers.
