Time to Take Online Drone Training into the Real World

Even talent needs a good coach and if you’re ready to put tire to the road and propeller to the air, InterDrone’s friends UAV Coach have a brand new offering that might just be for you. In select cities across the Southeast, UAV Coach will be rolling out in-person drone flight training classes. In these 90-minute sessions, you will be matched with an expert instructor and receive hands-on practice with a DJI drone, a walk through of the DJI Go 4 app, and best practices for safe piloting.

The course has been rolled out in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, and Tennessee already with more locations to be added later this year. Pick your location and you’ll be set up with one of the more than a dozen instructors from various professional and drone-related backgrounds.

“We’re proud of the impressive team of instructors we’ve brought on board,” says Lana Axelrod, UAV Coach Chief Operating Officer. “They’re passionate about the industry and excited to share their knowledge with students.”

UAV Coach is a well-established name in the drone community known for providing great updates on regulation in their newsletter, and soup to nuts guides like the Drone Jobs Guide and Master List of Drone Laws (Organized by State & Country). Alan and his team have helped train hundreds of pilots and helped thousands get certified with their online Part 107 Knowledge Test training at Drone Pilot Ground School. The new in-person training is the logical next step for their services.

“Over the last two years, we’ve helped thousands of pilots get certified through our online test prep course,” says Alan Perlman, UAV Coach CEO & Founder. “And while flight proficiency isn’t part of the FAA certification process, enough students expressed interest in learning how to manage their sUAS flight operations that it made sense for us to start offering in-person flight training classes.”

The course can be custom tailored to your needs, so whether you are new to drones entirely or are an enterprise user looking to professionalize your operations with flight operations management and checklists, UAV Coach’s expert instructors teach you the skills you need to fly with confidence.
