Piedmont Community College (PCC) has recently partnered with CrossFlight Sky Solutions to offer training for the mandatory FFA Part 107 commercial drone pilot exam.

CrossFlight Sky Solutions is based in Bluffton, South Carolina and is recognized as experts in the SUAS/Drone technology field. Together, CrossFlight Sky Solutions and PCC are able to provide curriculum and educational training for local industries, businesses, civil authorities, and community members seeking to become FAA Certified Commercial Drone Pilots.

The 23 hour program is an instructor led class covering FAA rules and regulations, airspace classifications, risk assessment tools, aeronautical decision making, airport operations, weather, and much more. Students will also take part in both a manual and automated hands-on flying segment during the class, although it is not necessary to own your own drone.

CrossFlight CEO Jerry Whittaker stated, “We are ecstatic about our relationship with Piedmont Community College. Through this partnership we desire to create a wave of certified commercial FFA drone pilots, ready to begin and carve their careers in the exciting and fast growing drone technology industry. We feel this partnership fits perfectly with PCC’s commitment to excellence in advanced technology and we could not be more excited.”

For more information on the class scheduled for the week of September 17 at PCC’s Person County Campus, contact Jody Blackwell at (336) 599-6622 or jody.blackwell@piedmontcc.edu or Jeanette Godsey at (336) 322-2156 or Jeanette.godsey@piedmontcc.edu).
