The UAV Ground School program is taught by FAA certified instructors and uses FAA-compliant materials that are presented in an online interactive multimedia format, allowing students to learn at their own pace. Built-in testing with real FAA test questions, an extensive documentation library, and flash card quizzes complement the program. UAV Ground School is produced by the nation's pilot education leader Gold Seal, who has prepared over 45,000 private pilots for their FAA Knowledge Test. The program is created specifically for the person who wants to be a professional UAV operator and wishes to gain full FAA certification.

UAV Ground School graduates may sit for the FAA Remote Operator Knowledge Test at any FAA testing center in the United States. Passing the FAA Knowledge Test and becoming a legal and safe operator gives graduates a major leg up as commercial UAV uses continue to explode. Recreational users will also benefit from the knowledge and confidence gained from successful completion of the UAV Ground School program.

Cliff Whitney, President, recently stated, "I am happy to say that on the first day of official FAA part 107 testing, UAV Ground School students reported a 100% pass rate. As an aircraft pilot and longtime UAV remote operator, I am dedicated to proper training and safe operations. Our program provides students a way to learn the in-depth FAA Part 107 regulations in an easy and fun manner. We also have a wholesale program that has been adopted by companies who offer training and use our curriculum as a means to enhance their own programs. By the end of September, there should be over 5,000 approved Remote Pilot Operators in the USA and I am proud that a large majority of them are our graduates."
