Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our learners say:
I was very happy to find GRADD training and that it was free to military veterans. I had no idea what to expect and when I received the course material links I was surprised a little.
There were not lesson videos led by anyone, however there were videos in the lessons. Not what I was expecting but I liked the different approach from what was being marketed by other companies.
Everything you need to know was there perfectly organized. The online experience of having the coffee and drone chats along with the lesson highlights added a different dimension than a normal training.
You actually get to know Reza and the other members of the trainers. This showed me the expanse of their actual knowledge of operating drones commercially which makes you feel very comfortable knowing you are learning from experienced pilots.
The weekly Kahoots quiz is very fun and a great training aid. The chatter from Reza and others provides a bit of distraction but it helps with your concentration. Kind of double training. This paid off during the actual exam. In fact, the exam was almost too quiet and they offered ear plugs.
Reza does a great job presenting the content. He is clearly passionate about aviation and training students to prepare and pass the Part 107 exam not by memorizing questions but actually understanding the material.
MIKE A. – USCG & US ARMY IDAHO NATIONAL GUARD ► 95% SCORE ON THE FAA PART 107 EXAM
This course is a top best resource for truly learning and understanding the materials and information needed to be a knowledgeable and professional Part 107 pilot. The study materials, tests and review sessions are well formulated and structured, easy to use, and give the trainee everything needed to successfully and legally operate in the Part 107 sUAS world, and to keep up with ongoing changes to Part 107 flight rules. Not to mention that Reza keeps things light and adds a lot of fun to the process and experience! Take the time to immerse yourself in this course and you will do very well on the FAA Part 107 exam and have all the tools you need to go forward with whatever type of flying you want to do both under Part 107 and recreationally. Highly, highly recommended!!
This class is incredibly complete. It is extremely easy to navigate through the reference documents. Also, there is an incredible number of documents. The class material is certainly a thorough synopsis of the documents. The class leader – Reza – is so knowledgeable as to be almost unbelievable and there is a large number of knowledgeable long term participants that make the classes interesting with their knowledge and experiences.
The course is well worth the investment. I had looked at several other training options and can honestly say, none came close to the content, amount of content, delivery of content and quality of this courses content. I learned far more than I anticipated and could have imagined in this course and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it to anyone who wants to be a safe well educated pilot and learn the material more in-depth than any other course offers. Other courses available offer “just enough to pass the Part 107”.
This was an excellent course to prepare for the FAA Part 107 Exam! I would recommend this course to anyone thinking about getting their Part 107 license! Great course!
This course was very well put together and Reza is very knowledgeable, very easy to communicate with and always willing to answer questions. I had a great time, it was a lot of fun!
I absolutely loved the course. Every week I would look forward to my training session on Saturdays. You guys were absolutely wonderful.
I’d worked on airfields for 8 years and never understood how to read an aeronautical chart. Though painstaking, this course’s knowledge tests helped me to make sense of nearly all the colored circles, lines, symbols, and numbers… Somehow the 107 test still found a way to ask two questions I had no clue on. Other than those, I felt fully prepared by this course. Already recommended it to a coworker.
This class was very informative and helpful. I gained knowledge that is helping prepare to take my part 107 test. Some of this course was quite challenging for me due to my lack of experience as a pilot. I was motivated by the instructors to keep working hard to improve my skill set. I appreciate the hard work of the instructors to help educators spread knowledge and information regarding drones and opportunities available. I know it take extra preparation and your personal time to teach this course. For that I say thank you!
Using NVBAA as a source of learning, for the Part 107 license, was the best choice that I could have made. Prompt responses per email, to clarify any questions, is the professionalism you will receive. The weekly online classes improve greatly the chances of passing the Part 107 exam.
