The Drone Pilot Boot Camp is different from every other drone course because it combines several key experiences you need to really do the job. Here’s what happens in the course:
Get your FAA Part 107 license
Did you know that it’s possible to pass the FAA Part 107 Exam without ever seeing a drone in real life? Yep. Kind of scary. Even so, having that license is super important so we don’t take chances. Passing a test and getting a credential is something you’ve probably done before, so this is the least original part of the course. The first section of the course is built with lots of instruction, exam tips, and practice tests to help you confidently pass the exam.
Fly in the drone flight simulator (the fun part)
There’s no substitute for experience, so picking the right drone flight simulator was really important to us. We chose Zephyr because it’s a great tool, plus Keven can build assignments into the program. So everyone has the same experience and Keven can track how you’re doing and offer specific feedback. You’re basically playing a video game that is going to help you in your job. We include a custom controller in the cost of the course because this flying piece is so important for new pilots.
Lots of interaction with Keven Gambold (so it feels ‘real’)
Access to a great instructor is the foundation of all HeatSpring courses, but this drone course goes above and beyond in this regard. Keven makes himself available whenever you need him.
About HeatSpring Membership
HeatSpring Membership is a bundle of learning opportunities that would otherwise cost a lot more. Here’s what you get:
- Extended access to paid courses. Wll of our courses come with 1-year of unlimited access. Sometimes people get busy and don’t finish, but they don’t want to pay for the class again. This is original reason we created HeatSpring membership. Now you can pay the small monthly fee for as long as you need to finish the class and get your certificate of completion.
- Certificates of completion for all free courses. We have lots of teams that use our free courses for learning and professional development. If earning certificates of completion help with tracking and motivation, then membership is a really affordable tool to get better results for your team.
- Member access to premium courses. With membership you get access to a bunch of premium courses that you would normally have to pay a lot more to take. Sometimes they carry CEUs. We try to add a new course every month to keep it fresh. Like all of our premium courses, once you’re enrolled you have a full year to take the course.
Membership is intended to lower the barrier to learning so you can make professional development a regular habit.
Membership is also available to Teams. Team discounts are applied automatically and team memberships have all of the same benefits as the individual memberships.
