Drone Pilot Certification and FAA 107 Test Prep - Wheeling Campus


with Nolan Rawlings

Calendar Sep 23, 2024 at 5:30 pm, runs for 2 weeks

This course provides all the basics regarding drones: how they function and fly, flight training to teach students to fly effectively without GPS, discussion of uses and applications, and a thorough review of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rules. Students use indoor flight training methodology with small model quadcopters and Ryze Tello kits. We initially train indoors without wind/weather using obstacle courses. This approach develops three primary skill proficiencies: 1. Dealing with a flight system orientation 2. Depth perception 3. Flying without dependency on GPS.

The course consists of 15 hours of in-person instruction and 60 hours of online education.
