  1. Recently, I've been inspired to relaunch my website ( as a remote pilot resource hub. I'm going to curate online drone training content and organize it into free courses as well as provide guides, reviews, and comparisons of formal training for drone-based businesses. The initial focus is going to be on training and education, but I'm hoping to expand into other areas like resources for running a small drone business.I'd consider the site in a "soft launch" phase right now while I sort out some of the SEO, formatting, and look and feel of things. I'm open to constructive criticism if you take the time to check it out. What kinds of articles or resources would you like to see at Drone Outlook? Disclosure - I am a Drone Pilot Ground School affiliate.
  2. Hi, to be able to use a drone for a course that I teach my district is requiring me to be certified. Question 1: Does the study course come with certificate? And if yes, does it indicate the number of hours it takes to complete, or could you provide a letter. Thank you and looking forward to a favorable reply.
  3. Hoping to connect with/gather up a group of K12 Educators who are currently running or about to create a drone program in their school. Hopefully we can get a community title/site for "K12 Education" Thank you!
  4. I apologize, as I am sure this topic has been covered many times before. After my searches in the blog, I haven't really found a good answer. So I am starting this topic in hopes to get some great articles that are very informative but not "hire me because I'm certified" approach. I currently have a Real Estate Broker that is using a non-licensed pilot for their aerial photography. I just want to begin educating this potential customer of the risks and possible penalties of hiring a non-licensed pilot. I understand the risk and possible penalties...just don't know how to get the word out with being rude or to blunt and forward. Do you any of you have some articles that you send to your customers? How to you all approach this?
  5. OK, so I have my Part 107 certificate and I have the Drone Pilot Ground School certificate, I must be finished with UAV Coach, right? Not so fast. I just finished the last of the BONUS interviews that are provided as part of the Drone Pilot Ground School. The information there is really incredible! There is a goldmine of knowledge and information in those interviews. So, for anyone who is taking this course or has completed the course and obtained their Part 107 certification, I think it is very important that you finish the course and listen to each one of the interviews. I've listed them here even though they are clearly marked at the end of the course lecture listings. Ask a Drone Lawyer: Key Legal Considerations for Starting a Drone Business (32:26) Using Drones To Do Real Estate Marketing Understanding Drone Liability & Hull Insurance (22:27) Transitioning From Part-TIme to Full-Time Professional Aerial Services Running a Commercial Drone Program With Skyward (38:49) These are an important part of any drone pilot's education. Take advantage of them. The resources chosen to participate are top-notch indviduals as well. They know their business and they know what you will encounter in yours. Stan Nickel
  6. Hi. I work at a museum and we teach students about careers. We want to add working with drones as a career and would like companies to send information about how you do it. Thanks, Tony Butterfield
  7. Hello, I haven't purchased a drone yet. I am looking for information and advice on different drones. Barrie
  8. Broadcast announcement - if anyone lives in the Sacramento region, there is an important evening event on Wednesday, October 12th, 2016.

  9. Hello, I am Jose (Joe) here to learn about the hobby and what I find that I may like. I am from Alamosa, Colorado. Just got the P4.
  10. Hello everyone, I am a teacher educator in Winnipeg, Canada with a new drone! I am looking to connect to other educators at all/any levels of education to explore innovative uses of drones for teaching and learning. Drones are termed as 'disruptive technologies' in education that provide opportunities for creativity and innovation. I'm looking forward to connecting and sharing. I am lucky to have a son who is an acrobatic pilot and aircraft engineer who can help me study certifications such as CARS and other requirements as I am looking to become a certified drone pilot in Canada. #eyeshigh Eva

  12. Hello all, I'm currently working with VA Vocational Rehab to get some UAS training and certification, but I don't want to be limited to quadcopters and photography. What would you recommend for a civilian to train in fixed wing drones with a focus towards law enforcement? I am pushing for them to send me to UND Fargo but I would like to know if there are other options. Thanks in Advance!
  13. Hi all, Just got an email from Ben Blackwell, a high school student in Gastonia, North Carolina. He wants to start a drone club at his high school, and he launched an Indiegogo campaign to help fund it. Thought this was a nice project, and I felt good about sharing it with the UAV Coach community. Here's the link: #dronesforgood #stemeducation #giddyup
  14. Here's my first complete video. Every year, our two high schools combine to build a low cost home and make it available for needy families to purchase at a low cost. This year, the home will be sold to a disabled vet. The bathroom is designed with handicap rails and showers. All exterior construction and interior woodwork is done by students. All stills and interior video were shot with Phantom 3 Advanced. Notified Airport tower and hospital heliport. Got permission from neighbors to fly over property. Point of Interest mode for circular flights. Lucked out with soft over-cast lighting at 5 pm. Great colors without using filters. Interior shots done hand-held with Phantom. The gimbal cam makes a very good steady-cam! Edited in Adobe Premiere CS6
  15. Hi all, my name is Bill Kaiser. I am a technology teacher for two high schools in Helena, Montana. I went to a workshop a couple of months ago and got excited about using drone technology with high school students. We are now dealing with the 333 issues and are hoping the FAA drops some love on us this June so we don't have to deal with the licensed pilot issue. We have a licensed pilot in our district, but the idea is to get kids learning and flying the drones, not the adults. Anyway, it sounds like the FAA will probably fix this, but not before school gets out this summer. I've been in contact with my local FAA operations drone expert and, if I understood him correctly, he believes that the new regs will only require passing a written test. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this. We have already purchased two P3 Advanced with all the extras so we are pretty well invested right now. I'm negotiating with the PE instructors at my schools to fly drones indoors in the practice gym so we don't violate any FAA rules. Looking forward to the day when we can get outside and have some fun! If anyone is interested in sharing high school curriculum materials, I would be very interested. I am currently patching together a OneNote classroom notebook to share with my teachers. It is a composed of all different sources on the internet and anything I can find that is relevant to high school student drone flight. Bill
  16. As a high school teacher, I am very excited about the May 4 Memorandum from the FAA regarding Educational Use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems. Unfortunately, my jail-house lawyer skills are lacking, so I am curious to see what others get from reading it. My take-away is: If I am a public school and The course using the UAS is not specifically a course on UAS, but uses the UAS only as a part of the curriculum. Students involved are enrolled in the class. Students or staff are not directly compensated. The instructor doesn't fly the UAS, except to avoid calamity then, : Students fly as hobbyists Staff only flies in event student loses control. (not sure how I save the UAS, if I never get to practice) The program can be compensated as long as student and staff are not. Still hazy on whether I need come type of FAA certificate or does the memorandum say I am good to go based on the memorandum? I registered my UAS as "Public Entity" instead of "hobbyist" as per advice of FAA UAS hotline. What is your take-away? PS. at some point, it might be nice to have and "education" category.
