FEEDBACK FROM OUR AMAZING STUDENTS

Common Questions

More questions can be found on our FAQ page over here.

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?

We’re known in the industry for our 1:1 student support, the depth of our training materials, and how we keep our students informed of the latest drone industry happenings and opportunities for commercial sUAS operations. You can always call us at (888) 382-8053 or send us an email at support@dronepilotgroundschool.com.

Do you offer training in my city?

We only offer online training. This is to your advantage — you can view the lectures at your own pace as many times as you need. Call or email us if you have questions. You’ll also have lifetime access to the course, which becomes important if you’d like to maintain your certification under the FAA’s Part 107 regulations 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) if you don’t pass the FAA Aeronautical Knowledge Test after taking our course. With our 99%+ success rate, this rarely happens, but we have your back in case it does.
