Student Testimonials

I am so glad that I took the course with Drone Universities. It opened my eyes to so many potential things that I had never even thought of. I had so many questions before taking the course and would spend countless hours online trying to find the answers but there was so much misinformation out there. Drone Universities answered all of my questions in an informative and comprehensive manner. The instructors were very knowledgeable and personable. I enjoyed the classroom instruction as well as the hands on experience. When I first started the course I could barely fly a drone. By the end of the second day I was confident enough to take my new drone home and fly solo. I think that anyone interested in flying drones, even as a hobbyist, should take this course to learn the safe practices and regulations. Safety is the key to success!

I received a DJI Phantom 3 this past Christmas and as a new drone owner, I had no idea where to start. I knew I needed to register my drone, but that’s about it. That’s why I enrolled in Drone Universities drone safety course. Not only did I learn how to fly my drone safely, I now understand basic drone law. Thanks to Drone Universities, I’m now registered/compliant with the FAA and I’m confident when I fly my DJI Phantom.

I’d had a great experience and strongly recommend Drone Universities.

Isaac E, New Drone Owner/Drone Hobbyist
I had the opportunity to attend the 2-day training of Introduction to Drones at Drone Universities, after attending a single day training from another drone school. I can vouch for the good quality of training provided by their team. The training was highly ethical and the trainers were flexible with our needs. I recommend them for 3 reasons:

  1. They focus on making you a good pilot with deeper theoretical and practical knowledge
  2. They are real pilots. Each instructor taught course content with insights from personal experiences
  3. They teach with passion and want you to be successful

I plan to attend their advanced level courses in the near future.  They may not be cheapest but the quality speaks for itself. I admire their passion and sincerely wish them success.

Having taken Drone Universities course Intro to Drones, I realize it was the best investment I made. Not only do you learn the basics of this industry, you are also given a chance to learn to fly them! Not many programs out there that I have taken give you this option; I’ve tried others. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I strongly recommend them!
Jess G, Aspiring Drone Operator
I recently attended “Introduction to drones” offered by Drone Universities. The class was taught by several instructors who were experts in their domains. Their knowledge, experience and expertise spoke for itself. The focus of the class was on how to be a good pilot by having the best ethics, related knowledge and professionalism. One thing that impressed me the most was the emphasis on actually learning how to fly a drone without, and without always needing technology as an aid.

The class overall was an excellent experience and I am planning to attend more classes from Drone Universities.
