Press Release July 27, 2017 AirVenture – Oshkosh, WI
King Schools Co-Founder John King commented, “AOPA’s recent creation of a Drone Pilot Membership welcomes people who fly, or desire to fly, drones. Many will be hoping to acquire a Remote Pilot Certificate and this discount will make it easier for them to reach that goal.” Co-Founder Martha King continued, “We want to help those pilots with courses that not only get them past their FAA Part 107 test, but also teach smart and safe operations. Of course, we make sure that they have fun along the way!”
AOPA Senior Director of UAS Programs Kathleen ‘Kat’ Swain said, “We are happy to add another great benefit for our members. I’ve taken quite a few King Schools courses and have always found them to be informative, fun and easy to understand. Adding their Part 107 drone pilot course is another step in expanding options for AOPA members to receive high quality training and test preparation at a nice discount.”
AOPA members can purchase the King Schools Drone Pilot License Test Prep Course for $108 (retail $129) through the members section of the AOPA website.
