Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

If you are unsure about what you need to know to pass the test, Sean is your guy. Great job, fun class!

Megan Solus

Awesome experience got the knowledge to feel comfortable taking the test and passed with ease thanks!!!

Geoff Rosenberger

If you need or want a drone license this is the place to get it! Awesome crew and they will help you make your dreams come true! Ed and Sean are the best in the business! don’t put it off any longer! PDX Drone Academy will help you make it happen!!

Chris Bilbao

Need to pass the Part 107? These guys can make it happen – along with a lot of studying. Getting instruction from actual manned aircraft pilots is a step up from getting tips from drone pilots. Ed and Sean were able to answer every question and help plan for the inevitable FAA trick question. Worth the investment!!

Bill Roberson

There are not words to describe what an amazing experience this was. I came into this experience confident in my ability to fly and complete the mission at hand…but taking tests terrified me and that was the hurdle.
Seans teaching methodology and his passion for the learning environment and for the students under his instruction was incredible.
I learned charting, map reading, a greater understanding of air space and weather. I learned how my little tiny drone fit and influenced the air space in its entirety and made some great friends along the way. Oh yeah, I crushed my test! I could not have done this without Sean or the PDX Drone Academy and I will forever be grateful.
If you are wondering if you should or if you shouldn’t than the answer is you should. Even as a hobbyist, you will gain insight that will prepare you far beyond your wildest imagination.
Sean, you are the best and I thank you, Sir!

Chris Jacobsen

Just finished up the UAS Remote Pilot Class (FAA Part 107) this weekend. Sean has a great approach to teaching and explaining the information needed to pass the test. His class helps you build your knowledge base while you gain an appreciation of the importance of the material presented. Its a lot of material in a short time period but presented in a way you can comprehend.

When I came into the class I really didn’t know anything about aviation and was able to pass the FAA test on the first try. Sean is not only an excellent instructor but he made it a fun experience as well. I highly recommend the class and PDX Drone Academy.
