Every Business Startup Requires Some Investment
Passing the Part 107 means you've learned what the FAA wants you to know about UAV flight. It's like getting a driver's license. You know the rules of the road, and you're allowed to pilot your UAV, but what are you going to do with it? Become an Uber driver? Just enjoy driving around? Your true learning curve starts now if you want to enter the world of commercial drone use.
In this class series we'll be talking about the additional equipment you'll need to build a successful drone business. Of course a drone will be needed, but what else will you need to deliver quality drone flight products to your clients? In this series of talks we'll cover some of what you'll need to get up and running.
