Part 107 Drone Training

The Part 107 Essentials drone training course from Consortiq is industry-leading. Our instructors are highly experienced civilian commercial operators, and many were involved in the design and development of the courses. As former military and civilian, rotary and fixed wing, manned and remote pilots and former air traffic controllers, they ensure that the training is up-to-date and relevant, satisfying not just the requirements but also preparing graduates for their first job as a commercial drone operator. This Part 107 course takes place over two days and will fully prepare you to take your Part 107 Aeronautical Exam with the FAA.

Ground School

The Ground School consists of two days of classroom learning. This will be facilitated by two instructors, one with a primary background in manned aviation and one from a drone operational background who is currently working in the industry at the highest levels. This combined experience is unique to Consortiq and ensures you receive the best instruction available to help you gain your Part 107 certificate.

The emphasis during this stage is practical application through case studies and discussion. We will see how the theoretical knowledge is applied to the real-world operations you will be carrying out on a daily basis.

Through a series of Flight Planning exercises, we will bring together all the theoretical elements and ensure that a good understanding of how they work ‘in the field’ has been achieved.

“The UAQ-Media course was extremely detailed and covered everything I needed and wanted to learn in a simple, easy to understand way over a short period of time. From starting out as a complete novice, I now feel very confident in flight planning, knowing my legal limitations and flying safely.”
