From our Students Here is what they are saying about the courses
Greg is precise and steady with the lectures. He's easy to comprehend. Not too fast or slow. Just right for me. Just about everything one needs is provided in order to follow and understand. From the lecture notes and cheat sheets to the links to the FAA books and manuals.
I'm loving this course. I take all types of online courses and I have to say that the instruction for each chapter is smooth, makes all necessary points, and the physical examples and diagrams really help the concepts sink in. I definitely feel as if I am learning the concepts very easily so far.
I tried learning just on my own and I was having trouble with some of the more advanced material and I just couldn't get my questions answered off Youtube and books alone this course breaks everything down and lets me ask questions if I don't understand

This course is a bundle and contains both the 'Part 107 Made Easy' course and the 'Drone Business Made Easy' course.
Yes, you get the same guarantee as the standalone 'Part 107 Made Easy' course.
Anyone who flies a drone for commercial purposes anywhere in the United States must have a Part 107 license from the FAA. The FAA has a broad definition of what commercial means and you should be certified if you make money from drones (including monetization from ads on YouTube, etc). Real estate professionals, roofers, photographers, mappers, influencers, and first responders are all using drones to increase their results.
The 'Part 107 Made Easy' course is 12.5 hours long and can be completed with our 2-weeks challenge. Most students finish in a month or two. The 'Drone Business Made Easy' course is 7 hours long and contains a lot of assignments so plan on completing it in 2 weeks.
Yes, absolutely. The recurrent exam only covers certain topics from the original course and we highlighted those for you. You also still have access to the initial videos. Helpful if you need a quick refresher.
The Part 107 exam costs roughly $160 to take and it's administered by an FAA authorized center. We don't get any of your testing fee. The testing fee is non-refundable, so make sure you study before taking it. If you fail the exam, you will need to wait 2 full weeks before you can retake it.
The FAA maintains a list of authorized testing facilities. There are testing centers in most metropolitan centers in all 50 states. Some people find it helpful to signup for a test date in advance to motivate themselves to buckle down and study.
Part 107 Made Easy
When you first come across Part 107 it probably seems like a foreign language to you. There are airspace classifications, NOTAM, regulations, and diagrams that you need to understand. We put this course together to make it all easy.
You won’t feel overwhelmed – once you finish this course passing a test will never have been easier for you. Many people who take this course haven’t taken an exam in 30 years or more.
This is not an overview course, this is a comprehensive class that encompasses everything you need to know to become a confident Remote Pilot.
We keep videos clear and concise and this course is mobile and user-friendly.
You will be able to spot the trick questions on the test and answer them right. You don’t need any prior aviation experience.
This is the only resource that you will need to pass the test. Having everything in one structured place is efficient and it will take you less time to pass. If you need help, it’s easy to get in contact with us.

Drone Business Made Easy
You love flying your drone and you think it would be great to take it to the next level by starting a drone business. But the idea might overwhelm you. Where do I start? How do I find customers? How much should I charge? Do I need a business plan? How much money will I make? This course will help you answer all these questions and many more.
Start a drone business on a solid foundation rather than on a whim. You will learn from someone who has created and managed successful businesses. In this course, you will:
- learn how to successfully research potential drone business opportunities,
- answer questions you should ask yourself before starting a drone business,
- create a successful business plan,
- learn the legalese involved in creating a business,
- learn how to successfully market your business,
- create important financial documents,
- learn how to run the day-to-day operation of your business,
- discover how to find customers and keep them,
- complete assignments throughout the entire course so this is not passive learning.
This course is a realistic approach to building a drone business, we promise NOT to give you a rosy and unrealistic picture of the aviation industry in general. We will NOT make you a millionaire or promise that you will make $100, $200, $300 per hour flying your drone. We are NOT selling you a dream. This is designed to be a realistic drone business course.
Note that this course does NOT teach how to take better pictures, better videos, how to edit in Premiere, how to do roof inspections, etc… We assume you already have those skills if you are going to make money from it.
The Easiest Way to Pass the Exam and Start a Profitable Business Some courses teach to the test. This leaves you with surface-level knowledge and it makes it harder to pass the test. We have a fresh approach. We also show you how to start a profitable business on a strong foundation.
- Designed for visual, auditory, and reading learners.
- Our course is built on strong foundations, not surface level knowledge.
- Lifetime Access - Go at your own pace.
- Become an FAA Certified Drone Pilot in no time.
