The classroom portion starts at 9am, with the flight portion starting at around 1pm. The course usually concludes around 3pm.
The classroom portion of the class is conducted at:
11550 Aviation Blvd., Suite 1, West Palm Beach, FL 33412
After the classroom portion, we head to the flight field, about a 10 minute drive away.
We limit our class sizes to three people to ensure everyone gets ample flight time. If you have a larger party you’d like to put through the course, we can arrange a custom schedule for you.
Yes, all you need to do is show up! We have all the equipment necessary to complete the course.
Absolutely! Especially if it differs in type to the DJI Phantoms we use. We’re more than happy to help get your machine up and running for its first flight. It’s best if you can complete all the preliminary setup (such as registering it and downloading any required firmware updates) before the day of the course.
Each person usually gets a little over an hour of actual flight time on the course. We have found this to be more than enough time to feel comfortable and confident with it in the air, even in emergency situations.
Don’t worry—we know no one can control the weather. If the weather is looking bad for your course date, we’ll try to let you know in plenty of time. Typically we’ll complete the classroom portion, and arrange an alternate date for the flight session.
