Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) Remote Pilot License Test Prep Course

Why is it cool?

Drones, or small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS), seem to be everywhere these days. While anyone can fly a drone for recreational purposes, those using drones for commercial purposes must obtain a Remote Pilot Certificate.

The sUAS Remote Pilot License Test Prep Course is cool because it will prepare you to pass the FAA’s sUAS initial Aeronautical Knowledge Test, which is required to obtain a Remote Pilot Certificate and operate a commercial drone. The class covers history, some theory of operations and a basic introduction to drone technology.

The 15-hour course consists of pre-read materials, in-class lectures and a practice exam at the end of the course. Students will leave the class not only prepared to pass the Aeronautical Knowledge Test, but with a better understanding of safe and professional drone operation. A certificate of completion will be awarded following the course.

The next course will be held from 6 to 10 p.m. on four consecutive Tuesdays, Sept. 18 to Oct. 9, in Norman at OU Building NC210 (AME Building) - 1st Floor, 1928 Goddard Ave. A maximum of 30 participants will be accepted for the course. The cost is $99 for OU faculty, staff or students and $199 for the general public. Once the course is full, you may be put on a waiting list, or watch for future sessions to become available.

Seats remain available for the OU Department of Aviation’s sUAS Remote Pilot License Test Prep Course.
