Part 107 Drone Training Plus

Many organizations are now realizing the benefits of using drones within their business. Whether they're capturing aerial stills, video, thermal or infrared data they are using data to make business and safety critical decisions quicker and cheaper. Drones are no longer a tool of the future, today they are being actively used by construction, mining, energy, infrastructure and first responders. They are just another tool in the toolbox that an organization can use to make more informed decisions.

Driving Business Change

Drones are a serious tool and have the potential to cause harm if not given the respect they deserve. Complying with FAA Part 107 regulations and insurance requirements can be quite daunting for the typical drone user from a non-aviation background. Perhaps you're the innovative individual who is driving business change in your organization; you're not sure where to start but know you want to do it 'the right way.' Getting it wrong could expose you, your team, or your organization to legal and financial risk.

Drones don't need to be complicated.

Regulators don't need to be feared. As professional aviators we have lived the fundamental principles of being safe over decades and then applied them to drones. We realized that individuals and organizations just need guidance to help them achieve more. Just like using an accountant or attorney, it's better in the long run than trying to do it yourself. Our courses cover everything you need to successfully set you and your team up as safe and responsible drone operators. Whether developing a proof of concept to taking that concept out of R&D and rolling it out across all divisions. Whether you have one drone or a fleet, becoming an FAA Part 107 Certified Drone Pilot is the first legal requirement. Consortiq provides the first step with the FAA Part 107 Plus held at locations across the USA or at your facility.

Our training courses have been developed by professional aviators with current sUAS experience in some of the most complex and high profile drone missions. With former backgrounds in the airlines and military, fixed wing and rotary, including air traffic control operations and engineering, you can be sure we have condensed decades of experience to give you and your team exactly what you need to be a safe and responsible drone pilot. We've trained thousands of pilots and continually refined our course over many years. We've developed standards for the AUVSI TOP (Trusted Operator Program) and delivered our courses globally in the USA, Africa, and the United Kingdom. You'll also get a limited time free access to our award winning drone fleet and mission management software (CQNet) to help you continue to be a safe, professional drone operator.

Industry Leading - #1 Xcellence Award

Consortiq was recognized as #1 in Training and Education by AUVSI Xcellence Awards at the Xponential Conference. The Part 107 Essentials Plus 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.

Two Day 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 to ensure that a good understanding of how they work ‘in the field.’
