Remote Pilot

Flying drones is fun! It also includes the responsibility to be safe and know the current FAA regulations. Learn the basics to fly as a hobbyist and/or prepare to pass the FAA Part 107 Exam required for certification for remote pilots who want to fly for profit.

Additional classes are under development and various classes will be offered throughout the year.

This program is made possible in part by funding from the Schoolcraft College Foundation.
