Aerial photography, roofing checks, real estate video, weddings, GoPro stunts, just think of all the money you could make if you flew commercially-and without spending the big bucks getting a “real” commercial pilot license! The FAA now allows you to apply for your commercial drone/UAS (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) license, called a Remote Pilot Certificate, by passing a multiple-choice test and paying a small fee. No experience needed.
If you’re flying your drone for fun in your back yard, you do not need a license. If you wish to make money taking pictures, then you must have an FAA 14 CFR part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate.
This 8 hour community education course will help you prepare to take the Remote Pilot/FAA test to receive certification. This course is classroom instruction only. There will not be any drone flying.
You must be at least 16 years old and have a valid government-issued identification. The test center fee is $150 (FAA regulated and NOT included in the price of the class. You will need to pass a TSA background check before receiving your license.
With your paid enrollment all students will receive a discount voucher courtesy of Pacific Skies Aviation at Torrance Airport for a free $100 VIP upgrade discovery flight. Experience the skies from a real airplane and compare it to what your drone sees.
