I saw a Christmas tree go up this year before Halloween. And this year, Black Friday sales are here long before Black Friday actually hits. Just look to the team at Drone Pilot Ground School, which is offering their online Part 107 test prep course for $107 as part of their early Black Friday 2023 sale which starts, yes, now.
But we’re not complaining. After all, Drone Pilot Ground School is one of the best Part 107 drone test prep courses. It’s the course Drone Girl herself, Sally French, took and passed the Federal Aviation Administration’s Aeronautical Knowledge Test on her first try.
And Drone Pilot Ground School’s top-rated test prep courses are on sale, starting today.
Drone Pilot Ground School’s Black Friday sale, or Fly-Day sale, begins Thursday, Nov. 9th, and runs until Friday, Nov. 24th.
The Fly-Day sale provides $107 off all three packages. Drone Pilot Ground School doesn’t typically discount the Guided Study + Flight Training package since it’s already discounted, so this is huge!
For the Fly-Day sale, the online course starts at $299, and with $107 off it moves to $192, which amounts to 36% off.
Use this link and the Drone Pilot Ground School sale price will automatically apply (for purchases made before the close of the sale on Nov. 24th).
A closer look into Drone Pilot Ground School’s programs
The Drone Pilot Ground School offers three different test-prep package levels to choose from, each $107 off.
- Self Study: Usually $299, now $192
- Guided Study: Usually $339, now $232
- Guided Study + Flight training: Usually $525, now $418
The Self Study package includes video lectures, and quizzes with about 300 practice questions including FAA questions, a 12-page crame sheet, and 1:1 customer support.
The Guided Study package is the most popular and includes all the components of the Study Study package and more. Some additions include unlimited practice exams, a live weekly Zoom webinar for acing the FAA part 107 exam, top 15 drone training exercises, and more.
The Guided Study + Flight Training includes everything the Guided Study entails, plus 1:1 hands-on training with an expert drone instructor. Quick note, make sure you are near an instructor before you purchase this package.
All three programs have a pass or don’t pay 30-day money-back, and the most up-to-date content guarantee.
Because of its reputation, it holds some major players in the industry as student customers including Sykdio, NYPD, John Deere, and journalists from news organizations including USA Today, and The Wall Street Journal.
Why you need to take the Part 107 test
The FAA’s Part 107 rules say that if you want to fly a drone for business, you need a drone pilot license. They used to call it a “remote pilot certificate with a small UAS rating.” To get it, you just have to pass the in-person written exam, often referred to as the Part 107 test.
The test has 60 multiple-choice questions, and you’ve got to pick the right answer for each one. You can take the test at one of the 700 testing centers across the US. If you pass, they’ll give you a physical license, which you should keep on you when you’re using your drone.
And because the test is far tricker than a common sense test (you’ll need to know how to read a sectional chart, and what stratiform clouds are, among other topics), you’ll likely want to take a training course.
If you haven’t taken your Part 107 test yet, now is the time to purchase the Drone Ground School’s test prep course. You won’t see a deal like this often.
Or perhaps you have a friend or family member who is recently into drones, and you want to support their career endeavors, this makes for a perfect and thoughtful gift.
One note about combining coupon codes to double dip on this sale though: you can’t. Drone Girl is usually able to offer you, our readers, a promo code for $50 off the standalone Drone Pilot Ground School Part 107 online course using discount code DRONEGIRL50. However, that promo code is temporarily going on pause through the sale’s end. The $107 off is a much better deal anyway.
