Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS a.k.a. Drones) are a dynamic, emerging technology that is transforming industries and is projected to have an economic impact of over $100 billion over the next four years. Our specialized training courses take you from learning to fly drones all the way through to preparing for your FAA certification.
Commercial use of drones does require pilots to have FAA remote pilot certification, received upon successfully passing the certification test administered at an FAA-approved facility. Mid's Drone Training is designed to teach drone piloting skills, address the various types of drone systems on the market, identify the potential uses and industry applications for drones, and prepare students to successfully pass the remote pilot knowledge test, required for FAA certification.
Remote Pilot Knowledge Test Prep
Keep up with changing Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requirements to remain ahead of the curve among commercial drone pilots. Anyone operating a drone for any commercial or business purpose must obtain an FAA remote pilot certification. This highly focused course prepares you for the test to receive this certification.
