The Alpha Aviation Drone Certification Course will help students earn their FAA Remote Pilot (Drone/UAS) Certification. Our 15-day course will prepare students to take and pass the aeronautical knowledge exam.
The course is still 15 days, but modified to fit our current situation. The in-person sessions will now be hosted as a Zoom meeting. Please email us if you have any questions.
The 15-day syllabus for a morning session course:
(The evening session begins at 4pm on Day 1)
Day 1, 8am to 12pm:
Check-In and meet your designated course instructor. Meet your classmates. Together as a group, Day 1 will introduce you to the course material and how to effectively study. If you follow the course instructions as designed, statistics show you will have a 99.8% chance of passing the exam on the first attempt. You will also be meeting students from the previous class before you and be able to solicit feedback from them as they prepare to take and pass the aeronautical knowledge exam.
At your own pace, complete the online Self-Study kit. Each evening from 7pm-11pm, an Alpha Aviation drone course instructor will be available via phone, text, video conference and private group chat to help assist with conceptual understanding of the material.
Day 14, 11:30am to 4pm:
Return to Class, Finish Up!
This day will wrap up the course as you make final preparation for the aeronautical knowledge exam. Bring all of your course material with you to class.
The last two hours of class will offer hands-on drone operator training. Additional drone operator flight training is available for an additional fee.
(Tutoring is available after the completion of Day 14 for an additional fee upon request.)
Your Drone Instructor will complete the course by making a professional recommendation to either take the exam or not take the exam. Course Certificate will be provided to students who have demonstrated readiness to take and pass the exam.
FAA Aeronautical Knowledge Exam
Take the exam at the scheduled FAA Computerized Assisted Testing Service (CATS) Testing Center.
In the unlikely event of exam failure (scoring less than the passing score of 70%) or not feeling confident to pass the exam, the student may take one additional Alpha Aviation Drone Certification Course (AADCC) for free.
