FEEDBACK FROM OUR AMAZING STUDENTS
I have to admit that I was reluctant to purchase your course. I found several sites offering quick study and practice exams, but based on previous flying lessons from years ago, I found most of their content was inaccurate and sometimes very misleading. I finally took the plunge and enrolled this morning knowing that you offered a 30-day money back guarantee and I must say that I'm glad I did. The videos are very clear and content is very informative. I am impressed.
I just want to thank you for making this course. Admittedly, I was skeptical about spending several hundred dollars on an online course due to so many scams out there. Your course is VERY informative, and very well delivered. I like the speed at which the content is delivered, and the slides that go with everything. I’m only about 21% into it, but I’m really enjoying it. Looks like I'm going to have to go back and take some more notes!
I just wanted to tell you that I think you have put together an absolutely phenomenal course. The regulations have “forced” me to have a certification for a part of my business where one was never before needed. I was less than excited to spend the extra time and money to have the permission to add aerial footage to my real estate listings. But, not only has your course already taught me that there is some logic to these regulations, but that I can use my education gained here to actually enhance my value to prospective clients.
I wanted to let you know that I think your course is without a doubt the best way to increase your chances to pass the FAA's Aeronautical Knowledge Test. I could not imagine having to learn and decipher all the information on my own. Your email support is amazing!

Do you administer the FAA exam?
We are a test prep course for the FAA’s drone licensing exam. Once you’ve gone through our course and you’re scoring well on the practice tests, you will schedule an appointment at an official test center in your area and take the exam in person.
How long will it take me to go through this course?
Most of our students have full-time jobs and take 2-3 weeks to get through each of our lessons and full-length practice tests. It ends up being about 10-20 hours of total butt-in-seat study time. Since you get lifetime access to the course materials, you can work through them at your own pace.
What if I need help or have questions?
Our support staff is here to help you study. There are several ways to contact us: email us at [email protected], call us at 888-626-1490, or click the “Ask a Question by Voicemail” button within the course. Plus, you can go to our Learning/Help Center to see questions that others asked, along with our answers.
Do you offer training in my city?
Yes, we offer hands-on drone flight training classes throughout the U.S. — when it comes to Part 107 test prep, our online-based course works to your advantage — you can view the video lessons at your own pace as many times as you need. You also get lifetime access to the course, which becomes important if you’d like to maintain your certification every 24 months.
Can I study for the FAA test by using free resources instead of paying for your course?
Yes, if you’re simply interested in ‘passing the test,’ there are free videos and study guides out there. But you won’t find the same level of instruction, real-world focus on flight operations, 1:1 support, dynamically updated training materials, or passing guarantee. We put together this course to help our students both save time and also to understand not just how to ‘pass the test’ but how to think like a pilot and to enter the sUAS industry safely and professionally.
Do you guarantee I’ll pass?
Yes, we’ll cover your testing fee (normally $150) AND will refund you our course fee if you don’t pass the FAA Aeronautical Knowledge Test after taking our course (and scoring at least 85% on one of our practice tests). With our 99%+ success rate, this rarely happens, but we have your back in case it does.
Is this certification valid outside of the U.S.?
The FAA Aeronautical Knowledge Test is a United States exam for drone pilots looking to fly for commercial use in the U.S., and our course prepares you for this exam. Please check your country’s drone laws for your local rules and regulations.
