Today, we talk about Certified Flight Instructors. Is it mandatory for a drone school to have Certified Flight Instructors (CFI’s)? Is there any value at all in getting trained from a Certified Flight Instructor?
A certification does not guarantee good training skills. Wouldn’t you rather learn from someone who has some real world flying experience? We also talk about Drone U Elite. Because our vetting process is based on real world parameters such as experience and revenue earned, Drone U Elite trainers are among the best in the industry. We thank Ken for the question. Stay tuned and fly safe!
