From our Students Here is what they are saying about the courses
Easily passed the test with your help... very very good course!
Finally, I'm getting a handle on reading charts. Greg's explanations were the right pace, and very clear - much better than the two other courses I took for the same purpose.

No, you don't. All the videos in this course are available in the full test prep course.
YouTube is great if you want to learn a single task: how to fix a flat, how to delete images from my iPhone, etc... YouTube is NOT a great platform to learn skills that could lead to fines. Our courses are taught by aviation professionals who hold credentials issued by the FAA. Videos on YouTube also can't be updated so the information could be outdated or even incorrect. We keep up with the new regulation and update our courses accordingly. Our courses are also designed for more than just passing the test (as opposed to most YT videos).
No. All the information can be found for free digitally. We will provide you with links to various websites and apps.
Yes, it is. This course was initially designed for pilots studying for the Remote Pilot written exam. In May 2019, the FAA implemented new regulation for recreational pilots (also called hobbyists), making this course extremely relevant to understand how the airspace works.
This course is designed to help Recreational drone pilots and Remote Pilots (certified or currently studying) acquire a better understand of the National Airspace System and how to read information on Sectional Charts and Chart Supplements. This course is comprehensive and helps pilots accomplish the following:
- (1) Identify which airspace your mission takes place in
- (2) Determine if the airspace requires permission
- (3) Become proficient at reading FAA chart and chart supplement to gather the maximum amount of data before a mission.
This course is updated with the latest regulation from the 2018 FAA Reauthorization Act, including changes to the Recreational Pilot regulation requiring authorization to fly in controlled airspace.
These lessons are part of my Part 107 Made Easy course, which can be found on this website. There, you will find additional information about regulation, aviation weather, crew resource management, emergency procedures, aeronautical decision-making, physiology, and maintenance.
More Than Just the Test 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.
- Designed for visual, auditory, and reading learners.
- Our course is built on strong foundations, not short-term cramming.
- Go at your own pace.
