We offer both one and two-day programs. The one-day includes a 1/2 day of classroom and a 1/2 day hands-on flight training. The two-day program builds on the first day, adding more advanced techniques, camera operations and more. Lunch is provided for both days (click over to see more).


Atlanta Hobby, along with sister/ partner companies UAV Experts and UAV Ground School, are the nation's leader in UAV operations and training for flight operations. Companies from around the country such as Fox News, Cox Media, CBS, Ally Insurance, as well as real estate agents, both police and fire departments, and other countless individuals have enrolled in our various programs. They have experienced first-hand the benefits of our comprehensive flight training and professional development.

We offer two distinct programs:

1. Hands-On Systems and Flight Training

There's nothing better than getting your hands on the latest UAV equipment and learning to fly with an expert. Our one and two-day programs feature small classes, limited to only 15 students per class. We offer extensive hands-on flight training with ample classroom time, giving students a better understanding of the various flight, software, and hardware systems. Our curriculum is extensive and includes all equipment.

If you have not yet participated in our hands-on program then you are missing out. Our facility is second to none. There is something about the atmosphere of people learning and sharing their knowledge that is just fantastic. You're going to pick up a lot of tips on filming, flying, FAA and legal issues, and even running a UAV-based business efficiently.

2. Gold Seal UAV Ground School

This program is taught by FAA-certified instructors, using FAA compliant materials in an online, interactive, multimedia format allowing you to learn at your own pace.

Built-in testing, with real FAA test questions, an extensive documentation library, and flash card quizzes complement the program. The UAV program was created specifically for those wanting to increase their knowledge, pass the FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot written test and become a professional UAV/ drone operator with full FAA certification.

UAV Ground School graduates may sit for the FAA Remote Operator Knowledge Test at any FAA testing center in the United States. Passing the FAA Knowledge Test and becoming a safe and legal operator gives graduates a major leg up as commercial UAV uses explode.
