The Fort Bend County Office of Emergency Management is hosting a Part 107 training class at the Fort Bend County Fairgrounds on December 3-7. The class will cover all the materials on the FAA’s Part 107 exam (and includes the testing and licensing fees and all test-taking logistics) and is offered by world-class disaster-response professionals who do not just teach to the test. Each agency and department will need to fund the cost the class participants at $1200 per person.
Similar classes have been offered in the past and our staff enjoyed the hands-on approach, the time spent on complicated topics like airport operations and sectional charts, and the real-world emergency management experience of the instructors.
This class is being offered by the Center for Robot-Assisted Search and Rescue and the Florida State University’s Center for Disaster Risk Policy.
Thursday and Friday are reserved for FAA testing and hands-on flight training, and on Thursday the Drone Operators Group will join the class at the fairgrounds for flight practice. You will complete the course with valuable knowledge, experience, and a FAA sUAS pilot’s license.

This class is capped at 16 participants and we have some per-registered; the remaining seats will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
