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.

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).
* All "hands-on" drone pilot flight courses include managing equipment resources, mastering remote control operating systems, obtaining authorizations, working with crew members, and reinforcement of applicable piloting policies
