Drone Mastery took some time off as it was pursuing a business relationship with another company to provide more extensive trading in various aspects within the industry, including online training and worldwide workshops. While that relationship was under consideration, all work was suspended pending a need to rework and/or rebrand the training materials, or even shut down Drone Mastery itself. Well, that relationship is still being worked on, but the material still needs to be put out there, so we are ramping out business again!
First up, the FAA Daytime Waiver (aka Night Waiver) training course is nearly complete as reported back in February. All that remains is to record and edit footage for the videos, but everything else is in place. That course should be available online before the end of June 2018 at this point.
The FAA has finally released a new Airmen Certification Standards (ACS) for the Remote Pilot Training, which now includes information on Recurrent Training, so those of you, like myself, that are quickly coming up for their FAR 107 license renewal can start getting prepped. More details will be provided, including a link to the new ACS (which will take effect June 11,2018), in another post shortly.
With the new FAA ACS for Remote Pilots, we will have to review and possibly rework our FAR 107 training course that has been under development. We will also develop a FAR 107 Renewal Course since the ACS shows renewal testing will not cover a couple of areas, such as weather (we know a lot of you are happy about that!), so the course will allow users access only to what they need for retesting.
