Three companies – HeatSpring, Little Arms, and Unmanned Experts – joined forces to create a “Drone Pilot Boot Camp + FAA Part 107 Exam Prep.” This new offering is an unmanned aircraft commercial operations course designed specifically for engineering, construction and renewable energy firms. The course has been developed over the past few years by a former combat pilot for the British Royal Air Force in tandem with leaders in drone technology and software.

One of the keys to this new course offering is logging flight time. The course includes training on Zephyr drone simulation software, which works across any platform and allows the instructors to review student progress and provide coaching to each individual student pilot. The idea behind the course is that the unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) industry is a constantly changing place, which requires effective and standardized training to help drive the industry forward.

While the course has a focus on engineering, construction and renewable energy firms, it is available for anyone who wants to become a drone pilot. The next course begins in April 2020. Check it out:
