Flying the Mil Mi-24, crash safety progress, attacking the Thomas Fire, Germany’s ADAC, and more!
Drone pilots who want to fly their drones in furtherance of a business, have a fun and quick way to prepare to pass the required Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate written test with Version 2.0 of the King Schools Drone Pilot License Test Prep Course. The course can be purchased at an introductory price of $99 until July 1, 2017, from KingSchools.com.
“Since it was released in January of 2017, over 1,000 drone operators have passed the test using version 1.0 of our course,” said John King, co-chairman of King Schools. “We have more than 70 reviews for this course and almost all of them have a five-star rating. One drone course taker, Jennifer U., commented that, ‘The course was so much more enjoyable than reading the manual. It helped me remember the information through acronyms and other fun educational measures.’ Version 2.0 will be even more of what they tell us worked so well for them. We’ve added more humor, video and graphics to make things clearer and more fun.”
“Probably the most difficult subject on the knowledge test for the remote pilot certificate is airspace,” said Martha King, the other co-chairman of King Schools. “That’s where our 33 years of experience in teaching with video really pay off. Learning drone pilots will see a 3D recreation of airspace, so when they see it on a 2D sectional chart, they will be able to visualize it in the air.”
“We are thrilled to bring techniques that we have developed over the past decades of simplifying and clarifying these concepts to help drone pilots truly understand and safely participate as partners in our national airspace system,” said John. “New users and current owners of our course will also enjoy all new HD video in the regulations lesson, interactive FAA-style [Federal Aviation Administration-style] questions and extended content throughout the course.”
“This new version of our course is a reflection of our policy of continually updating all of our courses,” added Martha. “We expect the drone course will be updated frequently since the drone industry is in such a state of flux and the FAA is scrambling fast to keep up.”
Current course users need not worry about information expiring since King has a policy of automatically updating the courses of all current customers. This course includes the KING guarantee that if a customer fails their FAA test within one year of purchase, they get their money back and keep the course.
The King course gets drone pilots ready to pass the FAA test and gives them the tools they need to both safely integrate into the National Airspace System and stay out of trouble with the FAA. The course is the result of collaboration between King Schools and the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI).
