AIRSPACE, SIMPLIFIED

Take the worry out of the scariest part of the test

See why so many students have said that this is the simplest, most efficient airspace explanation they've found, anywhere, in this sample video.


EASY REGULATIONS

Many other videos & courses just read the regulations to you. But isn't that something you can do yourself?
These videos break down what the Part 107 regulations actually mean with examples and help you understand why.
Updated as the regulations change.

LEARN TO READ CHARTS

Chart-reading makes up a good portion of the test, and can be one of the most difficult sections. Let's make it one of the easiest. A bonus video will walk you through actual FAA Part 107 chart questions, and how to answer them.

"This course was awesome and very thorough. It introduced and reinforced topics I didn't even know existed and explained them in a way that was easy to understand. I would highly recommend this course for anyone that needs to get their drone license." - Gavin G

FAQ

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

    Absolutely. I take a lot of pride in the fact that all of my students have passed their test on the first attempt. 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.

  • What's included in the course price? Will I have to pay more later?

    Everything you see in the sections above is included in the course. This includes all videos, the study guide, the quizzes, unlimited practice tests, and 24/7 access as long as you have an Internet connection.
    Extras are available, like airspace training customized to your home area, and a one-on-one video consult.

    The 30-day access gives you access to all of this for a month. The Unlimited price gives you access to all material in perpetuity, as well as automatic, free enrollment in the Recurrent Test Prep Course after you complete this course.

  • Why should I choose this course?

    I think the student testimonials do a better job of explaining this. They all show a common thread - their ability to understand and retain the Part 107 information thanks to the simplicity of the presentation.

    I've focused more on teaching you the material you need to know, rather than wowing you with expensive graphics. This also helps me keep the price low.

    On top of that, many other Part 107 study guides, videos, and courses online were created by drone pilots who have done nothing more than pass the test then put together a guide.
    I have nearly 15 years of flight instructor experience, both in the military and as a civilian. I've spent years learning how to be an instructor and practicing the craft. I've taught Air Force fighter pilots, civilian helicopter pilots, and civilian & first responder drone pilots. I "have the receipts," as they say.

  • 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 June 2020.

  • How many hours of video are included?

    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 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! ”

“This was a great course at an amazing price, compared to all the others. By taking my time, I was able to pass the FAA Airman Knowledge Test on the first try. There were a few questions that weren't covered, but it's like that for just about every online course for every subject. The material covered in this online course was very informative and the key to me passing on my first try. I highly recommend that you download the study guide and fill it in as you take the course. ”

“John's course is an outstanding value and provides a quality Part 107 study experience. Overall, I am very impressed with the instructor’s dedication to provide an outstanding experience for his students. He not only offers a 30-day money back guarantee, but he also guarantees you’ll pass your FAA exam on the first try or he will reimburse you for the testing fee and refund your course tuition. Although, with his students having a 100% pass rate so far it isn’t likely you’ll need to take him up on that offer.

“I'm a burgeoning recreational flyer, but am trying to have improved knowledge of the flying process with my new drone. I worked as a Flight Paramedic in the past and always respected the Pilot in the right seat. As I review more information it's like going back to the old days which I often miss. I've finished another paid course which was great, but felt there were still some gaps. I've taken a half-dozen other practice tests, watched innumerable videos on YouTube, once again great, but gaps. With John's experience in flying, teaching and course preparation I felt I had found someone who provided the right content for me at an affordable price. I now better understand airspace, the legend, aircraft dynamics and so much more. I of course would love to make 100%, but regardless I feel I understand the material better, and wasn't studying just to pass the test.”

Part 107 Test Prep curriculum

What are we learning?

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.

"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
