Are you already thinking like a drone trailblazer? Are you following the stories on the new and compelling uses of drones that are providing valuable new services to many industries, safely and cost-effectively?

Have you considered how valuable a commercial drone license with actual flight experience would be? Here's the key: anyone who operates a drone for a commercial enterprise (their own or any other) must have a personal Remote Pilot Certificate.

This may be your new opportunity. Get ready now, and we'll help! Our mission: get you to pass your commercial drone pilot test without moving that test day out over and over!

WHAT YOU GET with the Part 107 Academy class registration:

--Online Part 107 Prep Course: 10 modules; about 14 hours of study (access: 1 year)
--Part 107 Regulations and Theory Review Class - 8 hours

We present the 4 1/2 day Part 107 Academy course in the "Tech Center" area of Denver, Colorado. (About half of our students are from the Denver area. We hold the classes near a variety of hotels for out-of-town students.) There are two days of classroom instruction, two days of flight instruction, and a morning dedicated to taking the 107 test. Students finish around 1 PM on Friday. More details will be sent upon registration.

Employers and public agencies: Are you developing your own UAS "Unmanned Aviation Systems" program? In your program you will need knowledgeable and licensed UAS pilots. One third of our Academy students are sponsored by their employers. We are happy to welcome employees to the class who will lead you into the drone era.

Can you think of a better career-enhancing investment than earning a Remote Pilot Certificate in about two week of study for under $1500? (For comparison: earning a private pilot license takes about $10,000 and six months!).

Unmanned Experts, a Denver-based UAV services enterprise, has been offering the Part 107 Academy in Denver for a year. ALL of our students from the U.S., four countries and three continents have passed the Part 107 exam. Our graduates say:

“The training from Unmanned Experts exceeded my expectations as a new drone pilot. I highly recommend their week-long hands-on program if you are pursuing the FAA Part 107 certification. Good combination of classroom instruction, online coursework, and indoor and outdoor flight training. Well done, UMEX!”  – J. K., March 2017

“I spent a week with an Unmanned Experts instructor that culminated in the receipt of my FAA Part 107 license to operate my drone commercially. Both the classroom time to master the FAA requirements and time spent learning to fly a drone were invaluable. My instructor is an experienced aircraft and drone pilot who is well versed in all the factors that one needs to know to legally fly a small unmanned aerial vehicle.” – S. B., July 2017

Join the drone trailblazers: the entrepreneurs and forward-thinkers who will lead the adoption of unmanned aircraft technology!
