Great Information

by Craig Little
After completing this course on 8/19/16 it seems like this is all the knowledge I would need to pursue my Section 333 Exemption, BUT it looks like something similar needs to be covered for 8/29/16 preparation for the Part 107 registration and exam.

Great but needs updated through out.

by michael mason
It was easy to follow and well documented. Because of the updated regulations I started processes that had changed. I would update the videos and the step by step document as these where the ones I jumped to first. But overall it was great and well documented.

Absolutely essential!!!

by Brandon Hammon
There are so few of us out there and we need all the information we can get to ensure that this new industry does not get bogged down with public fear, misinformation and over legislation due to careless operation. I highly recommend this course and I wish the best to all my fellow pilots!

Money well spent!

I would like to start by saying that Aeroworks is way ahead of many other businesses. Not only is the information relevant and well layout, but they have a website that actually works and is easy to navigate! Going through the 333 exemption course I found it easy to follow the step by step instructions. I also received regular emails encouraging me to complete course, my current % of completion and a link that took me right to where I left off. The video tutorials walk you through the entire process, making what would otherwise be an daunting and difficult task very manageable. With the help of this course I was able to file my own 333 exemption and am confident the FAA will find my petition complete and containing all relevant information.
