Our goal for DroneBase Pilots is twofold: to generate more Missions for DroneBase Pilots, and to ensure that every Pilot receives adequate training – beyond their Part 107 certification.
Enter: DroneBase Training, our newest offering that ensures all Pilots are prepared and trained on the specifications of various Mission types. We have specialized courses for Insurance, Telecom, Real Estate and Construction Missions, and completing these courses will significantly increase the likelihood of guaranteed payout work!
If you’re a new pilot with DroneBase, the best way to get started is to opt in for DroneBase Training upon sign-up – but we strongly recommend all Pilots partake in training.
According to DroneBase’s Operations Manager Nick Ferranti, “We recommend that all pilots complete our various online training courses, as they provide more insight to specific client missions and the processes that need to be followed. From a variety of shot lists, approved drone systems, and standard onsite procedures, our online training courses help our pilots complete client missions successfully.”
On the value of DroneBase Training, Ferranti notes that “[they] are valuable because they provide our pilots with live missions they can fly and practice on without the pressure of an actual client mission. Our variety of training missions prepare our Pilots for multiple client missions and help our pilots understand different shot lists and our standard upload procedure.”
The end result? “Pilots are now ready to earn money doing what they love”!

Where and how to access DroneBase Training
First, be sure to have your Pilot Profile fully completed with drone system information, Part 107 license number, and correct address. Once you’ve saved your fully-completed Pilot Profile, you can opt in to DroneBase Training from within the “Client Mission” tab in your DroneBase App or on our site.
How does DroneBase Training Work?
Once you opt in to receive DroneBase Training, you’ll receive an email from our partners at Mindflash, a platform that helps us deliver our online training course materials to you.
All Training options have a Mindflash component, and these online courses typically take about an hour to complete. In certain cases, upon completion of our online training, Pilots are then sent a Training Mission request, which requires Pilots to shoot and fly a Mission in their own space.
Is DroneBase Training Mandatory?
While DroneBase Training isn’t mandatory, completing our trainings significantly increases your chance of receiving relevant Client Missions in your area. Upon completion of a Training Mission, DroneBase provides feedback to Pilots and will add a specific badge to their Pilot Profile qualifying them for Client Missions.
When we’re identifying Pilots to fly Client Missions, we look to those who have completed their trainings first!
