Frequently Asked Questions:
How long is this course?
The course is over 4 hours of video.
After I finish the course, can I go back later and review the materials, retake quizzes, etc.?
Does your course cover all the material I need to pass the remote pilot knowledge test?
This course was designed specifically for the airspace, chart reading, and requirements section portion which makes up 15-25% of the initial knowledge exam. It also includes many other things that are not included on the knowledge test but are extremely useful for everyday life.
Will we be able to use one course to train and retrain the entire staff?
No, here’s why. (1) Each person would be quizzed which forces retention of the material and (2) each completion certificate has their name on it. The certificate acts as a documentation of training in case of an FAA audit. The student has access to the course for a year. If you have more than 4 people going through the course, contact us and we can arrange a discount.
Do you offer group pricing for 10 or more students?
Yes, email us the details. (rpic at rupprechtdrones.com)
Can we pay via one purchase order for our group?
Yes, email us the details. We can do one purchase order to get started. (rpic at rupprechtdrones.com)
I downloaded a free study guide from the internet to study for the exam. How is this course any different?
This course was designed to teach you the knowledge you need to know so you can fly confidently in the United States PLUS many other things not covered by many other study guides. Why? Most study guides train people to pass just the test. Great effort was put into this course to point out things rarely talked about that are of great importance. For example, we talk about some of the criminal laws applicable to drone flying. Furthermore, I know of no other study guides that have over 100 + quiz questions designed by a current flight instructor who is also a practicing aviation attorney.
