FAA UAS Remote Pilot Certificate ground school for the written exam
Hello everyone, My name is Adrian Garcia. Brookhaven College is offering a 3-day workshop to help you prepare to take the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) written exam for your Remote Pilot Certificate. I am one of the instructors along with Richard Parra who has 18 years of flight instruction. Day 1 is the Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs), the FAA waiver process, and Airspace. Day 2 is Weather, Weight and Balance. Day 3 is Flight Operations and Intro to Drone Flying. We provide the textbook and online study material which the students can access even after the class is over. Practice exams are also provided. Hands on drone flying will be provided at the end of the course. Our primary emphasis is to get you to pass the FAA written exam. The workshop tuition is $299 with lunch provided each of the 3 days. So far we instructed the cities of Mesquite, Keller, Grand Prairie, Allen, Frisco, and the North Central Texas Council of Governments. Each have had passing grades of 90 percent. This class is also great to network with different organizations implementing drones.

What we're about

Public Group

This is a group for both amateur and professional drone users committed to promoting the use of UAV's and drones for recreational, professional, search and rescue and educational purposes. We are a community of enthusiasts, business owners and professionals who come together to share tips, experiences, knowledge and to fly our aircraft.

Please read our Standard Operating Procedures and Guidelines (http://www.meetup.com/North-Texas-Drone-User-Group/files/) document if you are new to operating drones, it could save your fingers!

Due to new FAA regulations, it is no longer necessary to register your drone for hobby use. If you still need to register a drone for commercial use, please use the following link:
