Do you want to fly a sUAS (Small Unmanned Aircraft System) for commercial use, or just learn to be a safe and responsible steward while you are having fun with your personal drone? Take an FAA-instructor-taught ground school with Flytcam's experienced commerical drone pilots!
You'll learn a lot about sUAS (commonly called drones) and have a great start on studying to meet the latest requirements from National Airspace (NAS) / Commercial Operations as proposed in the FAR Part 107.
Your facilitators are Luke T. Davis & Shaun P. Stanton, FAA certified AGIs and commercial drone operators.
IMPORTANT: This course will meet every Thursday from 6:00 to 9:00 PM for a total of 8 weeks. Class starts March 3, 2016. This is a fast paced course, and you must attend each class. Any absence must be excused by instructors. Any more than two absences will dis-enroll student. All attendees MUST be 18 or over.
You may join Academy of Model Aeronautics if you would like to fly on optional ‘flight days’—AMA membership is mandatory for flying.
