FAA 107 is the drone license needed for commercial drone pilots to fly legally. UAV Pilot Ground School has helped over 20,000 drone pilots pass the FAA Part 107 Aeronautical Knowledge Test, and over 99% of their students pass the test on the first try. With that being said WISPr Systems is proud to announce we are now partnered with UAV Pilot Ground School and are excited to offer their online classes through our channels.

Inside a Typical Lecture

People learn and absorb information differently. That’s why most of our lectures allow you to:

  • Watch or listen to the video. Each lecture begins with a dynamic, instructor-led video with illustrations.
  • Read the lesson. If you prefer to read, below each video is a detailed text lecture that includes the full video transcript plus additional information and resources.
  • Quiz yourself. At the end of each lecture, take a quiz that immediately tests your understanding of the content.
  • If you prefer, work offline and take notes. Use our downloadable, printable PDFs to read offline or print out, highlight and mark up as you wish.
  • Access 24/7 at home, work or on the go. View the course materials on your desktop, tablet and phone.
