Flight schools are in the perfect position to create opportunity for those interested in becoming drone (remote) pilots. By hosting a free drone seminar, you can help welcome these new pilots to the general aviation community.
Starting summer 2017, AOPA will make it easier than ever to host a drone seminar and help prepare attendees for their FAA Part 107 Knowledge Test. At no cost to you, AOPA will provide an engaging multi-media presentation. We’ll also provide take-home materials for each participant. PLUS, we’ll help market your seminar to those in the local area.
Here’s what to expect as you prepare to host an AOPA drone seminar called “Drones, From the Ground Up”:

Next to nothing! All you have to provide is an instructor, ensure you have a facility to host a seminar, tables and chairs for participants, and a screen and speakers for the presentation. We recommend that you also offer refreshments. AOPA will provide the engaging presentation and all the materials.
No written material is required on your part; however, you may want to supplement our slides and handouts with information about your school.
You are responsible for providing the instructor. AOPA has created a fun and engaging presentation along with an Instructor Guide to help your flight instructors or staff prepare to deliver and engage the attendees.
The presentation is designed to be completed in 4 ½ hours, but we encourage you to spend some time before and after the seminar to get to know your attendees.
