Student Testimonials

"Dann was extremely helpful for me to gain my FAA part 107 certification. I feel Dann is a great candidate to teach students on drone principles. I gained the necessary knowledge to advance my career through the use of flight simulations, hands on flight experience with nano drones, reviewing practice exam questions, discovering different applications of drone technology, and learning how to properly conduct flights through examples."
