Your Future is Back On!
Socially Distanced Drone Pilot License Training
From temperature taking to touchless delivery of food and emergency medical supplies, drones have continued to prove their value during the COVID-19 pandemic. Everyday uses for drones continue to grow around the globe. In the US, the FAA continues to evolve the rules and monitor test projects. This brings us closer to drones being a part of our daily lives and a viable career for licensed drone pilots, as employees and entrepreneurs.
Time to Take Your Goals off Hold
For many, goals for 2020 were put on hold as the world responded to the COVID-19 pandemic. Suddenly it’s August! State by state rules are in place to allow for safe, socially distanced return to some former activities. And that includes training to prepare to take your FAA Part 107 Commercial Drone Pilot License, a prerequisite for flying a drone commercially and earning money.
RBS Drone Technologies courses teach you everything you will need to know to prepare for the test for a Remote Pilot Certificate with a Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems Rating of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 107, section 107.73(a).
RBS Drone Technologies Launches New FAA Part 107 In-person Training Protocols
In light of social distancing with COVID-19, we are now accommodating two people per training in a 20-person classroom, at B. Coleman Aviation at the Gary/Chicago International Airport. That gives us plenty of space to be 6 feet apart, while learning this important content.
The two-hour outdoor hands-on training that is included in your registration is scheduled between the student and the instructor at a mutually convenient time. Hands-on training takes place at Midlothian Meadows in Midlothian, IL. The separate, full day hands-on training, recommended to hone your skills after you get your license, also takes place in Midlothian Meadows.
However, if you have an appropriate space (classroom for test prep training, open area or hangar for hands-on training) in the Chicagoland/Northwest Indiana area, we may be able to come to you.
Sponsor a Teen to Get their FAA Part 107 Drone Pilot License
While adults are training for professional drone careers now, training to get a Commercial Drone Pilot License is also a wonderful goal for a teen—especially since you only need to be 16 to take the exam. Our instructors work closely with youth to prepare them for the FAA Part 107 test. We make sure they have what they need for the exam and train them to fly a drone. Teens love seeing a practical application for their expert video game playing skills. Our program for teens provides structure, goal setting and mentorship from long-time pilots, teachers, air force and law enforcement veterans.
Training is offered year-round. Give us a call at 888.316.8889 or contact us to check on training to fit your availability, for yourself or to jump start a teen’s future.
