Your questions. Our answers.

Is the Real-World Flight Planning and Execution Program too advanced for me?

The Real-World Flight Planning and Execution Program is Step 3 of DARTdrones Wings Program. In order to receive your DARTdrones Wings, you must submit your flight experience and Part 107 Remote Pilot Certification.

How do I get my DARTdrones Wings?

The DARTdrones Wings Program consists of 3 steps: Flight Experience and Assessment, Part 107 Remote Pilot Certification, and the Real-World Flight Planning and Execution Program.

When will I be able to access the 14 courses?

Once you register for the program, you will receive instant access to all 14 online courses. You can access them at any time.

Are the DARTdrones Wings a “certification”?

The DARTdrones Wings are a credential given by DARTdrones that verifies that a drone pilot has basic equipment knowledge, knowledge of Part 107 and related regulations, an active Remote Pilot Certificate from the FAA, and an understanding of flight assessment factors and how to respond to potential hazards and risks.

The DARTdrones Wings do not guarantee that a drone pilot will never have an accident. The DARTdrones Wings do not include an in-person assessment and cannot ensure that the pilot has adequate flight experience.

Do the DARTdrones Wings expire?

The DARTdrones Wings expire on the day that your Remote Pilot Certificate expires. To renew their Wings, students must take the assessments again as well as upload their new Remote Pilot Certificate. There is no fee to renew your Wings.
