STEVENSVILLE — Chesapeake Sport Pilot is offering an exciting ground school class starting in November: “Drone School.” This two-day class runs Sunday, Nov. 3, and Sunday, Nov. 10, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The class will cover all of the knowledge a drone operator needs to know to both fly safely and legally in the national airspace system and pass the remote aircraft operator’s exam.
“While the remote aircraft operators exam and certificate are primarily required for anyone wishing to operate their drone for business, this class is designed to be a great help to the hobbyist as well as the professional,” said Chief Flight Instructor Helen Woods. “Anyone who takes this class will learn about the national airspace system and the rules for safely and legally operating drones in the United States. Hobbyists who take this class and then pass their remote aircraft operator’s exam will also earn expanded privileges and be able to use their drones for things that might make them few dollars, like photographing someone’s house or boat.”
Drone School starts on Nov. 3 and concludes Nov. 10. Both classes run from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and will be held at the Bay Bridge Airport. This test prep class is $299 with a discount available for those who register early. To register, call 410-604-1717. Gift certificates for the class are also available. Chesapeake Sport Pilot also is willing to bring this class to area businesses and government agencies who have multiple employees they need trained.
