Tue 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

The use of Drones for commercial purposes is growing at a phenomenal rate. Just a few of the uses are:

  • Aerial photography for journalism and film
  • Express shipping and delivery
  • Gathering information or supplying essentials for disaster management
  • Thermal sensor drones for search and rescue operations
  • Geographic mapping of inaccessible terrain and locations
  • Building safety and maintenance inspections
  • Precision crop & livestock monitoring
  • Law enforcement and border control surveillance

Anyone who wants to start a drone business and take advantage of this growing industry, needs to be prepared to do it the right way. This four part workshop (3 hrs. each) will present participants with the required information needed to obtain the FAA-Part 107 'Commercial Drone Pilot' license. This course will be presented over four (4) live webinar sessions, supplemented by approximately sixteen (16) hours of video tutorial lessons, and student homework assignments.
