Your questions. Our answers.

The DARTdrones Wings are not a “certification”. The Wings are a certificate of completion given by DARTdrones that shows that a drone pilot has completed training on equipment, regulations, flight assessment hazards, risks of flight, and holds an active Remote Pilot Certificate with the FAA.

The DARTdrones Wings do not guarantee that a drone pilot will never have an accident. The DARTdrones Wings do not include an in-person assessment and cannot ensure that the pilot has adequate flight experience.

The DARTdrones Wings expire on the day that your Remote Pilot Certificate expires. To renew your Wings, students must take the assessments again as well as upload their new Remote Pilot Certificate. There is no fee to renew your Wings.

If you have already taken and passed your Part 107 remote pilot certification exam AND have flight experience, you can start at Step 3: Real-World Flight Planning and Execution Program.

Once you receive your Wings, you’re able to take additional drone training courses to add specialized areas of expertise. DARTdrones offers the following Endorsements:

  • Thermal Imaging for Search and Rescue
  • Thermal Imaging for Inspections
  • Broadcast Media
  • Night Operations
  • Disaster Response
  • Aerial Mapping & Modeling
