“I would highly recommend Dronitek to any Public Safety agency who is entering into the realm of UAS as well as to anyone who is considering drone piloting as a career. Their well-trained and professional staff were a wealth of information and their curriculum for the First Responder Basic class was structured and easy to follow both in the classroom as well as out in the field. Our fire department, Los Angeles COUNTY Fire Department is one of the largest departments in the world and it is very important for us to train with the best because our reputation depends on it. I believe we have found the best training available out there with Dronitek!”

Craig Little, Captain LA County Fire Department

“I signed up for classes with Dronitek with 1 hour of flight time under my belt. Two weekends later I was making a high definition professional quality video with my own drone footage! Barry and the crew were so encouraging, positive, and patient with me while I was learning the basics alongside seasoned professionals. The classes moved at a great pace, were very organized, and kept us tuned in the entire time by rotating between the classroom and actually flying the drones. This could not have been a more professional experience and for what I have learned, it is easily the best investment I have ever made in myself. The knowledge and skills of the staff and management is nothing short of amazing. You will learn from the best and walk out of there feeling confident and motivated to succeed. I am forever grateful for this experience!”

Michael Thompson, San Lorenzo, CA, Commercial UAS/Remote Pilot Certification Course, Advanced UAS Cinematography Production Certification Course & UAS/Drone Maintenance and Repair Certification Course Graduate

Angela Snider, Sacramento, CA, Commercial UAS/Remote Pilot Certification Course Graduate

“Thanks to everyone at Dronitek!!! Been flying for a while but never realized the rules and regulations behind our flying. After taking this course with Barry as our instructor and don’t forget lots of studying, I passed my test today! Can’t thank you all enough had a blast and you are truly one amazing school! Look forward to coming back and sitting in on your refresher course and yes you renew your license every two years. Keep that knowledge flowing it only makes for a better pilot!”

Dante Faraone, San Diego, CA, Commercial UAS/Remote Pilot Certification Course Graduate

“I just wanted to write you with thanks and gratitude for this past weekend’s experience. I want to express that I appreciate you and your staff’s time and effort in sharing the wealth of information with us. I believe it really opened my eyes in taking sUAS operations way more seriously than I could imagine and will continue to learn, practice and adapt. I don’t believe there is any reason why any drone operator would NOT take your course.”

Billy Graham, San Francisco, CA, Commercial UAS/Remote Pilot Certification Course Graduate, PG&E Contractor

“If you are considering a job in the hot Drone industry this is a MUST HAVE course to have under your belt. Not only does the course add credibility to your resume, but the folks at Dronitek pack loads of information and fun into a weekend. Their instructors have years of experience in aviation and they take you through every aspect of FAA Drone regulations as well as FAA airspace, weather, weight & balance and more…. Plus, they provide ample time to practice your drone flying skills. A top-notch drone course with top notch instructors.”

Jim McKay, Sacramento, CA, Commercial UAS/Remote Pilot Certification Course Graduate, UAS Precision Agriculture Pilot

“I purchased a drone for our city to be used for emergency responses and quickly figured out that there was way more to using a drone than just making a purchase and placing it into service. In search of answers on how we could best utilize our drone and follow FAA rules, I reached out to Dronitek. Barry took the time to explain what we needed to do before we could properly start our operations. I signed up and attended the two-day Commercial UAS/Remote Pilot Certification Course. The fast-paced training is loaded with information and well organized and we rotated between the classroom and a flight area where we were taught to operate and fly drones. The instructors were patient and professional throughout the training and the course gave me the knowledge I needed to develop our drone program and gave me the resources a pilot will need before flying.”

Scott Hafdell, Battalion Chief, Manhattan Beach CA Fire Department, Commercial UAS/Remote Pilot Certification Course & UAS/Drone Maintenance and Repair Certification Course Graduate

“I think your curriculum is spot-on, and what I just went through (and score I received) is a positive affirmation of that opinion. I know I said it at the end of the weekend, but it bears repeating: You and your staff are absolutely professional in every sense of the word. The training you offer is worth every penny, and there was a TON of information provided in just two days. I cannot commend you enough on the excellent product you are providing.”

Matt Cunningham, Sacramento, CA, Commercial UAS/Remote Pilot Certification Course Graduate

“On behalf of my sons and I, we would like to extend our appreciation to Dronitek for your outstanding training program. You and your staff are very professional and the program you offer is excellent. The program puts a good focus on safety and knowing airspace and other regulations to avoid conflicts with civil aviation and the public. This is an exciting industry and we appreciate your commitment to insuring we can all live together, thanks again.”

“As a commercial photographer serving corporate clients for over 10 years, I saw the opportunity to offer drone videography as a new service to my clients. I arrived at this course with some experience, but the instructors took me to the next level. We spent most of the first day in small groups flying under direct 1:1 instructor supervision. They taught all the essential aerial shots and how to execute them safely with the drone. Since the course was taught at a gorgeous winery and vineyard, we had great scenery to use for portfolio shots. We spent much of the second day learning how to edit our clips into a powerful portfolio piece. I highly recommend this course.”

Craig Sherod, Sacramento, CA, Commercial UAS/Remote Pilot Certification Course & Advanced UAS Cinematography Production Certification Course Graduate, Professional Photographer

“Great instructors that know the industries. The FAA 107 course was fantastic… I passed the test the following day. I also took the Agriculture class which was very informative and left class with confidence to fly AG missions.”

Robert Henley, Arkansas, Commercial UAS/Remote Pilot Certification Course & UAS/Drone Precision Agriculture Certification Graduate, UAS AV Quantix Pilot

“To all of the staff at Dronitek, thank you for putting together a great set of classes. The information was more than I anticipated, and the material was outstanding. I passed the FAA Part 107 exam with no problem. To anyone considering taking the class, it is well worth it. Don’t bother highlighting important parts of the workbook. I started to and I shortly realized I was highlighting whole pages. There isn’t any “fluff” it is all relevant. I attended most of the classes that Dronitek offers and I was not disappointed. The staff is always happy to answer any questions you may have. I’ve flown RC fixed wing for many years and considered myself above average. In the “hands on” flying portion of the class I learned a lot more. You are never too old or too good to learn. Thanks again for the fun and information packed classes.”
