. . . Seeking a highly-skilled Drone Master as the Dean of Whirlyversity . . . Tremendous career opportunity to develop an educational and training program for new and advancing pilots throughout the droning industry!! . . .

Considering operating your own commercial drone business?

Introducing drones into your current business operations?

If so, where do you start?

It all starts with ...
... Certification!

In order to pilot a small Unmanned Aerial System (sUAS) for ANY commercial purpose, the pilot must first pass the FAA Part 107 Aeronautical Knowledge Test and then obtain their FAA Remote Pilot Certificate.

At this time, there are no certification requirements to operate an aquatic drone, or ROV (remotely operated vehicle); however, it is highly recommended that new aquatic drone pilots attend our “hands-on” training courses to get the most out of their aquatic drones.

Drone Pilot Ground School
(FAA Part 107)

To ensure your success in passing the FAA Part 107 Aeronautical Knowledge Test the first time around, Whirlyversity offers one of the industry’s leading test preparation and training courses available for aerial drone pilots. While there are a number of online educational resources available, our drone pilot ground school course was selected, not just because of its 99%+ success rate, though more importantly, because of its “easy-to-follow” in-depth content, near-to “hands-on” training topics, and lifetime access to the course and other extremely valuable content and materials.

Drone Pilot Flight School
(Aerial & Aquatic Drones)

Whirlyversity offers a number of “hands-on” flight courses to help get you operating your drone like a professional as quickly as possible. Our courses are offered individually or in groups or company teams of up to five (5) aerial or aquatic drone pilots, and are held at a nearby Whirlyversity campus (park, school, open field, pool, marina, etc.) or at your place of business, conditions permitting. In order to participate in our flight courses, each pilot must have first obtained their FAA Remote Pilot Certificate (aerial drone pilot only) and then provide their own properly-functioning drone for the flight course ( WV does not provide drones for any “hand-on” flight courses).
