New training opportunity for commercial drone pilots

With the release of the new FAA Part 107 regulations, the commercial drone industry is buzzing with new opportunities. One such opportunity has come in the form of a partnership between industry leaders, Soaring Sky and Remote Pilot 101. Soaring Sky, a Florida-based commercial drone company, and Remote Pilot 101, an online educator focussed in pilot certification, have teamed up to provide a discounted rate on a Part 107 preparation course. Upon successful completion of the Part 107 exam, drone pilots are eligible to operate for hire.

“After extensive research into the types of tools available to drone pilots seeking certification, there was no doubt that Remote Pilot 101 set the industry standard.” said Soaring Sky Co-Founder, Ryan Cowell. “They are constantly seeking ways to update and improve their material, which speaks to their level of professionalism and dedication.”

Prospective drone pilots can expect the highest quality content from Remote Pilot 101 with lessons focussed in subject areas specific to sUAS certification. Lessons include instruction on airspace, crew resource management, emergency procedures, and more. Further, future pilots will have the opportunity to see and practice real FAA exam questions. This one-time purchase will include any later updates in regulations published by the FAA.

“As Remote Pilot 101 continues to grow, Soaring Sky will work closely with their leadership to provide industry expertise and insight. As a partnership, we are committed to being the best.” said Cowell.
