Part 107 Drone Pilot Certification Training

This course is a prerequisite for flying a drone commercially and earning money.

RBS Drone Tech courses teach 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).

In other words, we train you to pass the test to get your FAA drone pilot’s license to commercially operate a SUAS—a small unmanned aircraft system—or drone.

Expect to set aside approximately 4 weeks of time and invest $500 (money well-spent); in return, you can charge high-market rates for your commercial drone services.
