3 Truths About Drone Training

Join the drone rush and jumpstart your career in UAVs!




When I first started looking into the drone industry I actually felt quite confused by the new lingo and regulations, but the one thing that I consistently found in my research was the significant growth in the market.  Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs / drones) are the next big thing in technology and society, and it is on us right now!

In February of this year, 2015, there were only 14 approved FAA commercial UAV operators in the entire United States. As of October 22th, less than 8 months later, there are more than 2,000 FAA legally approved UAV Operators with over 5,000 petitions and no slow down in sight!

The industry is soaring and when the market will be satisfied is unknown, but the drone market is rapidly growing and there is no slowing it down.

The initial opportunity rush in the drone industry is as a professional UAV operator. Proper training is one of the initial steps to launch a career in this exciting industry. As such, UAV Training programs can be a smart investment that will provide you with the necessary knowledge and resources you will need to become a professional UAV pilot.

When my friend, Oscar, learned about drone training and decided to enroll in training, he was pretty overwhelmed and wasn’t sure what he should be looking for in a training program.

So, let me tell you 3 popular distortions of the truth that you need to know about drone training before you sign up for training courses:


Truth #1:

No 1, 3 or 5-Day “certification” training course will land you a drone career earning a six-figure salary, unless:

• You meet these four specific criteria as currently specified by FAA regulations.

Truth #2:

No drone training course can certify you as an FAA UAV operator, but:

• The FAA is in the process of defining what that certification is and it won’t be available until sometime in 2016.

Truth #3:

No certification training course will qualify you to fly commercially, unless:

• You as an individual or your company holds an FAA approved 333 Exemption and meet all 28 conditions of their 333 approval as well as restrictions on their Certificate of Authority (COA).
