Learning how to operate a drone commercially is not a simple prospect; with so many laws, rules and regulations to navigate, and so many different training providers, it can be confusing and intimidating.
At Drone Universities, we’ve addressed the problem; our proprietary curriculum was designed to simplify and streamline the process. We understand what it takes to succeed as a commercial drone operator, and we focus on building a strong foundation of skills to support this success.
Our comprehensive Introduction to Drones course is taught over two days and trains you beyond just passing the FAA Part 107 exam, making this the perfect course for aspiring professionals and employees in both the private and commercial sectors.
While enrolled, our students receive hands-on training from our FAA Certified Flight Instructors, UAS Experts and Commercial Pilots. Flying commercially requires extensive knowledge of both the ground and the air, and our expert trainers will guide you through each step of your education; stepping through FAA Part 107 and well beyond. At Drone Universities, our students are not only prepared for the FAA Part 107 exam, we guarantee they will pass*.

About FAA Part 107
FAA Part 107 is the latest FAA commercial drone regulation; Part 107 allows drone pilots to fly drones commercially or for business purposes. To fly under Part 107, you need to pass the FAA drone pilot test called the Airman Knowledge Test. This is a two hour, 60 question test, which requires training and extensive studying. Introduction to Drones, from Drone Universities, doesn’t just teach you everything you need to know to pass the Airman Knowledge Test, it guarantees* you’ll pass.
