UAV Coach has announced new in-person drone flight training classes, which are available across the Southeast.
UAV Coach created the 90-minute class for drone pilots to gain hands-on flight time with an instructor, practice with intelligent flight modes, and build knowledge about small unmanned aircraft system (sUAS) compliance and safety. Custom training is also available for companies looking to train their teams, says UAV Coach.
The $199 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, the company has been operating Drone Pilot Ground School, an online test prep course for the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Aeronautical Knowledge Test for receiving 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’s founder and CEO. “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.”
