Drone Cadets brings Drone Flight School to you. Even if your students have never touched a drone in their life, DRONE CADETS will help them learn the skills and techniques necessary to fly with safety and confidence.
Drone Cadets offers Assemblies, Events &
Real-World Training for Schools & Organizations Everywhere.
Tap into the global movement to bring drones, and all the world-changing possibilities they inspire, into the classroom with Drone Cadets; a program powered by DroneTech UAS. We’ve helped teach more than a thousand students worldwide—especially those in underserved communities—to open their minds, develop their skills and become safe, responsible drone pilots.
Students can progress at their own pace with 60-Day Access to this Virtual Learning Management System (LMS). Drone Cadets Online is a robust, fun and challenging interactive learning environment that effectively teaches drone flight, even without a drone!
Emphasis is placed on best practices and keeping safety first along with developing a basic understanding of FAA rules pertaining to the operation of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), or drones. A typical class consists of video instruction, several illustrated lessons or articles; and an interactive puzzle or a quiz. In addition, several lessons are followed by a hands-on coding or free flight, challenge, or mission.
By the end of the course, it is our hope that students will:
Live Help Sessions Included
Virtual learning is supported by two live Help Sessions on Zoom or similar platform. Individuals or small groups can join public Help Sessions by registering on the Drone-Cadets.com website. Groups of 10 – 29 students can schedule their own private Help Sessions with an instructor.
Site License Available
A Site License is available for groups of 30 Students or more at one site. A site is defined as one school or center; not one district or agency. The institution will receive digital files to load onto their own Learning Management System (LMS) Platform. Access will be granted, subject to the terms of the agreement, in perpetuity.
Our certified drone instructors will come to you, bringing all the energy, enthusiasm, and excitement our clients have come to expect. Drone Cadets Flight School can be taught as a 10 or 20-hour course.
Our STEM.org Accredited Curriculum teaches about aerodynamics and how drones achieve lift. This teaching helps them avoid frustration, by overcoming one of the most common reasons a drone pilot might experience a “Failure to Launch.”

Autonomous Drone Flight
Drone Racing is a sport in which pilots wear First Person View (FPV) goggles that stream a live feed from a tiny camera on a drone. Since the pilot sees what the drone sees, the experience is like sitting in the cockpit of a drone as it races around the track. It’s an incredibly fun and exciting sport for pilots and spectators alike.
Learning how to control an FPV drone requires practice. A drone racing track will include many obstacles, usually equipped with lighted hoops, turns, tunnels, ladders, and gates that the pilot must navigate swiftly. It takes practice to develop the control, reflexes, and hand-eye coordination required to fly the course. Pilots test their skills in heart-pounding competitive races where a mere tenth-of-a-second can mean victory or defeat.
Drone Racing Club also teaches the technical elements of setting up, arming, calibrating a drone for flight. There is an art and science to creating just the right conditions for each drone and pilot to reach optimum speed. Since crashes are inevitable, so are repairs. Students are taught how to replace damaged parts in the classroom, and make quick repairs in the field.
Drone Cadets Drone Flight School is a pre-requisite to Drone Racing because a pilot needs to learn the basics of drone aviation before they can develop their racing skills.
All Drone Cadets Drone Racing Clubs fly micro-quads in the Youth Drone Sports Camps (YDSC) League. Membership in the YDSC League allows pilots and teams to compete in events and tournaments world-wide. Drone racing is a fast-growing sport with different drone classifications that make it fun and challenging for all ages.
Host a high-energy multi-media event that includes a drone demonstration, audience participation and, of course lots of learning and fun.
Now we have time to make a huge impact. Host multiple assemblies or allow us to deliver a hands-on drone flight experience to two classrooms of students. Drone Cadets can hold a career talk, coding workshop or drone build workshop. We can provide a real-world training workshop by conducting a roof inspection or a drone delivery. You can even allow us to help spice-up a family engagement event.
The Drone Cadets team is yours all day. Just imagine what we can accomplish. We can hold a mock Search & Rescue event or teach a Part 107 Test Prep Review. License our curriculum and we can help your teachers get started or conduct a professional development program. Tell us what your emphasis is so we can help you achieve your goals.
