Understand Airspace here & now

Watch a sample video!

"I was passing all the practice tests from 85% to 92% but did not understand the basics of what I was studying. Took ASA Remote Pilot 2020 Test Prep, 2 paid online courses (1 refunded my money), several free online courses --- but none of them could get me past the basics of Airspace. In a few brief sessions of your courses my brain finally went 'WOW'" - Bruce A.


What you'll learn in this Remote Pilot Test Prep Course

There's so much to learn for the Part 107 Remote Pilot Test! 

A lot of other Part 107 courses throw in extra material that's not relevant to the test. How first responders use drones. How to start a business. 

While that's all good, let's just take things one piece at a time and pass that Remote Pilot test first!

Throughout this course you'll learn:

  • Part 107 regulations in plain English and with examples
  • The different classes of airspace with 3D models and how it relates to drone operations
  • How to read a chart with videos that walk you through how to answer actual FAA test questions
  • Night physiology for the new night rules
  • Basic aerodynamics and UAS performance for the math & science-challenged
  • Weather for regular people and how it relates to drones
  • How to read weather reports
  • And more! The full curriculum is below, with links to free previews.


I've taught in military & civil aviation for 15 years. I know the sticking points for students and how to get you past them.


"I have used three different online practice sites and this one by far is the best, in my opinion, for retaining the information." - Chris R


"The Peltier Part 107 Test Prep gave me full confidence in taking my exam. The beauty in this course is its simplicity and direct approach, providing a no-frills primer to ace the test. Highly recommended!" - Christian Y

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will I get a refund if I fail the test?

    Absolutely. If by some misfortune you don't pass, I will refund both the fees you paid for this course and your FAA test center fee.
    You will have had to complete 100% of this course to be eligible for the refund.

    With both pricing options, you will have unlimited, lifetime access to the material. You'll receive updates to the regulations via email as they happen, and be able to come back here to review the changes.

  • How current is the material?

    As current as it can be! The original curriculum is from late 2019 and I make updates as necessary to stay up with current regulations. The latest modifications were made in March 2021.

    There are currently ten hours of training videos included in this course. Most of the videos are less than ten minutes each and get straight to the point, not overwhelming you with longer videos full of "chit-chat".

“There are so many other courses to choose from that it was very hard for me to choose one, and in the end i decided to choose this one because of John's background and price. I have a difficult time learning and was really worried about not being able to retain the info. But in the end the videos were easy to understand and when i needed too they were nicely outlined so i could go straight to the part i needed to relearn without watching the whole video. But where this course really shined was on the Practice test, i took it about 10-15 times and not only was it teaching me what i needed to work on but it gave me the confidence i needed and helped reduce my testing anxiety to the point where i hardly had any. In the end even with my learning disability's i was able to learn what i needed to learn and pass the Part 107 exam at 88% within a week. ”

“This course got straight to the point and covered the required material both clearly and precise. Within 30 days I was up to speed and sailing thru the practice exams. When I took the Small Unmanned System test I really felt confident and was able to easily decipher what was being asked and answer correctly. The course is well laid out and is simple to go over the sections repeatedly until the lesson is clear. Give it a try, you wont be disappointed. Happy tailwinds Kelvin ”

“This Part 107 Training course was succinct and to the point, but at the same time comprehensive and thought provoking. It is obvious that the instructor has taken an understanding-based approach rather than simple rote memorization. I studied regularly for a week and went from knowing almost nothing about drones to passing the Part 107 with only one question wrong. You could use this course to study for 2 days and pass the test. That said, if you are also looking to really understand drone flying, principals of aeronautics and regulations, there is a lot of information here, and it is explained in a way that sinks in. In fact, this course sparked such an interest in aeronautics for me that I left the test center (at a small airport) with their pilot ground school materials. I am currently half way through reading the Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge and I am having a much easier time understanding all the concepts because so much of it was already covered in Peltier's course. The resources that he provides at the beginning are worth at least half the cost of the course alone. Anyway, I was obviously impressed. John's flying background makes him more than qualified to teach this course and in addition, he is readily available to answer questions daily and makes an effort to get back to you asap. Highly recommend! ”

“This program presented by John is an amazing tool for gaining the knowledge needed to understand all concepts in the sUAS knowledge test. It really makes you understand how to find the answers with short, very well put together videos you can learn a lot in no time at all. In 2 weeks I went from knowing absolutely nothing to passing my test with a 90% only learning after work before bed. This course is the best value out there. You won't be disappointed it's just as good if not better than any other training school out there! ”

“John's course layout was great. He uses short videos throughout the lessons to break down the information and explain it thoroughly. In addition to the videos, he has the notes below the videos for reference as well as test taking advice, references for other books, phone/tablet apps, etc. After passing the course, I spent the next few days going back through the videos and re-taking the practice test over and over. I studied in short intervals daily for about a week and scheduled my Part 107 exam and passed on my first attempt with a 90%. You have 2 hours to take the test. I finished early and had time to scan back through each question to ensure all were completed. Highly recommend this course! ”

Part 107 Test Prep curriculum

What are we learning?


"This course made many of those other instructors look pitiful and after taking this study course, I discovered many mistakes other course instructors made in their videos." - Bob B


"Just passed my Part 107 exam today with a 92% and this course adequately prepared me for a pass with this course alone. I had tried pulling together my own free materials and wasn't getting much progress. John is a great presenter and has boiled down all the essential info into an enjoyable short course. Thank you." - Russ N


Veteran-owned & operated

Your instructor

I have a unique background in education that started in the U.S. Air Force, where I flew F-15Es for nearly ten years. I've logged 114 Close Air Support combat missions during two deployments to Afghanistan, flew security for three different presidents and one space shuttle launch, and was an instructor in a training squadron during my final three years. My last job as an instructor was overseeing academic material for all F-15E training squadrons throughout the USAF.

I continued life as a flight instructor after the Air Force, this time in helicopters at home in beautiful Lake Tahoe, where I also flew tours.
I eventually took my professional photography full-time but continued flying as a UAS pilot for Search and Rescue, also teaching sheriff's deputies and SAR volunteers in getting FAA Part 107 certification. I've brought that curriculum - and my military & civilian instructor experience - to these online courses.

I'm here to teach, not dazzle you with expensive graphics, because I know you're here to learn, not waste your time or money.
