San Diego-based Kings Schools has launched a new version of a course for those looking to become commercial drone pilots.
The aviation educator says it collaborated with the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International to create the course, which is designed to prep aspiring remote pilots for the Federal Aviation Administration’s Part 107 written exam.
“Since it was released in January of 2017, over a thousand drone operators have passed the test using version 1.0 of our course,” says John King, co-chairman of King Schools.
He notes that the latest version incorporates more “humor, video and graphics to make things clearer and more fun.”
Martha King, the other co-chairman of King Schools, adds, “Probably the most difficult subject on the knowledge test for the Remote Pilot Certificate is airspace. That’s where our 33 years of experience in teaching with video really pay off. Learning drone pilots will see a 3D recreation of airspace so when they see it on a 2D sectional chart, they will be able to visualize it in the air.”
“We are thrilled to bring techniques that we have developed over the past decades of simplifying and clarifying these concepts,” continued King, “to help drone pilots truly understand and safely participate as partners in our National Airspace System. New users and current owners of our course will also enjoy all-new HD video in the regulations lesson, interactive FAA-style questions and extended content throughout the course.”
Version 2.0 of the King Schools Drone Pilot License Test Prep Course can be purchased at an introductory price of $99 until July 1.
