UAV Coach today announced new, in-person drone flight training classes, which are available across the Southeast United States. UAV Coach created the 90-minute, in-person class for drone pilots to gain hands-on flight time with an instructor, practice with intelligent flight modes, and build knowledge about unmanned aerial vehicle compliance and safety. Custom training is also available for companies looking to train their teams.
Classes are available in select cities throughout Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. More locations are expected to be added later this year.
The class is a new addition to UAV Coach’s existing drone training curriculum. Since 2016, they have been operating Drone Pilot Ground School, an online test prep course that prepares U.S. drone pilots to pass the FAA Aeronautical Knowledge Test and receive a Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate.
“Over the last two years, we’ve helped thousands of pilots get certified through our online test prep course,” says Alan Perlman, UAV Coach CEO & Founder. “And while flight proficiency isn’t part of the FAA certification process, enough students expressed interest in learning how to manage their sUAS flight operations that it made sense for us to start offering in-person flight training classes.”
UAV Coach has assembled a highly vetted team of instructors, many with drone pilot experience in industries such as real estate, construction, and public safety.
“We’re proud of the impressive team of instructors we’ve brought on board,” says Lana Axelrod, UAV Coach COO. “They’re passionate about the industry and excited to share their knowledge with students.”
For $199, students can register for the class, during which they can expect to:
- Meet with an expert instructor
- Learn on a popular DJI drone provided by the instructor
- Walk through the DJI Go 4 app
- Have hands-on flying time
- Learn to handle obstacles
- Practice flying under intelligent flight modes
- Capture photo and video
- Understand best practices
- Ask questions
