Prepare for an exciting career as a Commercial Drone Pilot. This training prepares you to earn the FAA Remote Pilot in Command Certificate. Gain hands-on experience flying a variety of drones, including the DJI Inspire, in real-world scenarios. You will also train on software and applications to manipulate photos, video and data captured by the drones.

UAS (Drone) use has boomed across a wide range of commercial and industrial applications for which the technology has provided a number of advantages including data collection, workforce safety and cost benefits. This implementation has created a need for trained pilots. The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) predicts more than 100,000 drone-related jobs will be created by 2025.
