AVI 200 Commercial Drone Pilot

3 Credits

This course prepares students to take the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) exam in commercial drone operations. Students explore FAA regulations to operate small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in the National Airspace System (NAS) for purposes other than hobby and recreation. This course examines the FAA Part 107 UAS classification, certification, and operating rules.

AVI 200 is only available to degree seeking undergraduate students. Completion of AVI 200, does not lead to certification. Upon successful completion of AVI 200, students will be prepared to take the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Part 107 Knowledge Test. Once students pass the exam, students are certified as a drone pilot by the Federal Aviation Administration. Ashford University does not grant certification. It is the student’s responsibility to locate an approved PSI Testing Center to sit for the FAA Part 107 Knowledge Test and cover the cost of the exam.
