An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), commonly known as a drone, is piloted remotely by a human operator or (semi)-autonomously. These devices are used in more and more areas of our lives. According to the Drone Industry Insights 2020 report, the worldwide drone industry is predicted to increase at a 13.8 percent CAGR to $42.8 billion by 2025.
In order to meet this increase in demand for drone operators, MCC is offering in-person foundational non-credit drone pilot training courses. You do not need to have a drone to take this or any of our drone technology classes.

The Part 107 Remote Pilot Training (and exam preparation) Course is the first step. In order to fly a drone under the FAA’s Small UAS Rule (Part 107), you must obtain a Remote Pilot Certificate from the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration).

This course prepares participants for the FAA Certification test. The instructor will provide information regarding where the certification can be taken at an additional cost.
