Combat Tested training

Over A Decade In Unmanned Aviation

Don’t get fooled by ‘experts’ who just got their first drone a year ago!  The Drone Academy team has been flying unmanned systems all over the world for more than a decade.  We’ve flown in combat zones and trained members of the U.S. and Foreign Militaries.  With a combined 35 years in aviation and over 15 years in unmanned systems, our instructors know what it takes to get you flying!
