PACE Regional Fall Drone Trainings 2019

Fall 2019

As a member of PACE, your district can send one individual to our drone training program at no cost (a $1,500 value).


This one day, 8-hour training covers all topics required to pass the written test for FAA Remote Pilot Certification. The remote pilot certificate is required to act as pilot in command of a small unmanned aircraft system, also known as a drone, for any purpose other than as a hobby. 

No prior aviation knowledge is necessary.

In this class you will receive everything you need to get started including a study book, current aeronautical chart, airport facility directory, sample checklist, and a practice test with actual FAA exam questions. Two weeks prior to the class, attendees will be provided with study materials that will need to be reviewed before attending this training. You will leave the class ready to schedule and pass your FAA Part 107 license exam.

Register here

Due to limited class sizes, only one individual for each member entity can attend this training. Registration will close ten business days prior to each class; if there are less than five registrants, it will be canceled, and registrants will be notified by email.

Registered attendees that are not able to make their scheduled training must provide at least two-weeks' notice of cancelation, or their district will be charged $500 for the cost of materials and the trainer. No shows will also be charged. Since there is a lot of interest for these classes, we appreciate as much notice as possible for cancelations so we can move people off of any waitlists. Please call 800-285-5461 or email  if you need to cancel your registration.
