One of our goals at Drone U is to be your one-stop resource for UAV training, information and expertise so you can take your piloting skills to the next level, and turn your passion into profit (should you desire).  We do have some resources for you, both member and non-member.  We are not a drone store, so we don’t include links of where to buy drones (there are too many options). But we do have the following for your benefit:


The following are documents you can download, print, read, burn…whatever floats your boat (or fly’s your drone).  If you have any questions regarding “things” you may (or may not) find in these documents, you can visit the Ask DroneU page to leave a question for us to answer live on one of our podcast shows. This first one may be one of the most important things for you to read through first.  The FAA has conveniently removed this document and language from just about anywhere they had it.  So it’s very difficult to find.  We just happen to have a copy of it for that very reason.  It contains an excerpt from a document from Charles Raley, who is/was the FAA’s Chief Counsel on Enforcement.  Check it out here because you’ll find it very interesting.


Drone U does NOT provide any legal advice and, therefore, you should consult with your own Attorney for legal advice. We are not a law firm and our employees are not acting as your attorney.

Any use of the Site does NOT create or constitute a solicitor-client relationship between Drone U or any employee of or other person associated with Drone U and you (or any other member/user of the Site). As the law differs in each legal jurisdiction and may be interpreted or applied differently depending on your location or situation, the information or use of documents on the Site is not a substitute for the advice of an Attorney.

For the most part, our Terms and Conditions specify that there is no guarantee or warranty and that we are not responsible for any loss, injury, claim, liability, or damage (“damages”) related to your use of the Site and the documents here-in, whether from errors or omissions in the content of the Site or any other linked sites/information/documentation. This includes, but is not limited to, your actual flying skills and any resulting crashes, injuries, damages, etc. that are a direct result of you flying.
