Congratulations!  You are on your way to becoming a certified drone pilot.  Taking ground school and exam prep courses are an essential part of obtaining your Basic or Advanced pilot certification. 

The next step:  Do you need BASIC or ADVANCED courses?  

Find out below!

Kate at Coastal Drone made the entire drone pilot certification simple… Previously, I attempted the advanced exam twice without a course and did not pass. After the course and exam prep, I passed the advanced exam on my first try. Clearly it works!  If you are serious about flying a drone legally, you owe it to yourself to check out Coastal Drone.
