Learn to fly your drone like a pro

Learning all of the ins-and-outs of legally flying a DJI Phantom or Inspire can be complex, confusing, and intimidating. Let our experts guide you through the processes in our 8 hour Phantom and Inspire course designed to walk you through everything you need to know. Learn everything from FAA rules and regulations to the various settings and features to your drone, and finish the day with our expert pilot as they take you outside for some hands on, one-on-one flight instruction. You are welcome to bring your own equipment, but don't worry if you don't have yours already. We will provide a Phantom for the class.

Drone Pilot Flight Training FAQs

I am new to drones. Is this package too advanced?

Many people that take the Drone Flight Training course are brand new to drones and flying for the first time in the class. The course starts with the basics for beginners, but also gets great reviews from advanced drone pilots. 

Do I need to bring a drone? What kind of drone is available?

You do not need to bring a drone. Our instructor provides a drone in the course, typically a Phantom 3 or 4. If you do have a drone, we recommend that you bring it and begin your training on your own drone so that you feel more comfortable. Although our class covers the Mavic and Inspire, our instructors usually only have a Phantom.

Does the course include outdoor flight time?

Yes! The course rotates from indoor to outdoor training. Learn in the comfort of a classroom and then head outside to fly in 3 one hour flight sessions.

What is the typical class size?

We keep our courses small and limit the course to 8 students.

What if the class isn't offered in my city? What if my city is sold out?

In preparation for Shark Tank, our instructors made the schedule available at capacity. The current classes offered are the only ones that we have available. If your city is completely sold out, we recommend checking a nearby city, organizing a private group lesson (priced for 8 participants), or submitting a contact form as we do often have last minute cancellations.

Will the class be rescheduled due to inclement weather?

We truly care about the safety of our students. If travel becomes dangerous, we will postpone the course to a later date and you can always select a date that works for you. If travel is not dangerous, we will still hold the indoor portion of the class and will reschedule only the outdoor flying portion to a later date.
