Drone Training Courses

 

If you are looking for the latest information on the best drone training courses and online drone courses, you’ve come to the right place. As a flying drone enthusiast, I look forward to the day when drones get approved for commercial use by the U.S. FAA.

When that happens, that is likely to open the floodgates, as far as drone pilots are concerned. Indeed, according to the drone report published by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International the legalization of commercial drones will create more than an economic impact worth $80 billion in revenue and job creation between 2015 and 2025. That is massive!

I have talked about the best drone job opportunities in [this article]. Do take a look and find out if there are any you like. To have a successful career as a drone pilot in large companies such as Amazon or in the government, you should do a B.S. in Aeronautics, with a Major in Unmanned Aircraft Systems Operations.

    I had no idea that you could go to school and learn how to fly one of these machines, fascinating post.

    I have been reading up recently about how popular drones are now becoming and the wide variety of uses they are now being designed to complete.

    Do you need to have passed one of these courses to fly a drone right now or just in a commercial capacity sometime in the future?

    I am from the UK and I have only heard of people using them as a recreational pastime over here.

      Hi Gordon, I´m glad that you liked my post.

      If you have a drone, and only use it for recreational purposes, it is not necessary to take a course.

      But if you want to work with drones in the commercial area (in the near future) you will have to take a course without a doubt. That way you will be more prepared for the job market, which is expected to grow.

      There are also some online drone courses that you may try, about how to take great photos from a drone, or even, how to make our own drone, and more.

      Thanks for your comment.

      As for the import taxes for Brazil, I am not aware of them, but maybe this post will help you find some website that has what you are looking for.
