Leptron’s FAA Certified Flight Instructors (CFI) have developed a 40 hour comprehensive course that combines both UAS flight training and ground school instruction. The UAS flight training module gives students the tools, resources, and experience to confidently launch a professional UAS business for either commercial or public operations. The ground school module focuses on preparing students for the Part 107 Aeronautical Knowledge Test (AKT) by teaching content that directly applies to professional UAS pilots. Leptron instructors are committed to helping you achieve your UAS training and certification goals.
Students from all backgrounds and experience levels will gain valuable industry knowledge and hands-on experience learning how to fly professional-grade unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) both manually and autonomously. Leptron instructors incorporate real-world experience to help students conduct search and rescue missions, inspections, data collection, and data processing.
PHASE 1: INDOOR FLIGHT TRAINING
Every student gets to keep an indoor UAS trainer that is used to learn fundamental aircraft control. Instructors begin teaching basic techniques and progressively introduce more advanced flight maneuvers throughout the week.
PHASE 2: OUTDOOR FLIGHT TRAINING
Leptron instructors strive to provide students with as much flight experience as possible. “Flight experience develops flight proficiency.” Of the 20 hours allotted for flight training, 16+ hours are allocated towards logging flight time.
PHASE 3: AERIAL DATA COLLECTION
The purpose of flying a UAS for commercial or public use is to collect actionable data.
Whether students are perusing careers in UAS inspection, surveying, photogrammetry, geospatial, and ⁄ or search and rescue, excellent mission planning and execution is critical to a successful outcome. Instructors will present real-world mission scenarios where students and instructors work together to plan and execute the mission.
PHASE 4: POST DATA PROCESSING
Data management is often an over looked challenge for many UAS pilots. Leptron provides useful techniques to manage and process data into useful and actionable deliverables.
Students receive a Certificate of Flight Training Completion at the end of the course.
Per Title 14 CFR Parts 61, 91, and 107 “A person operating a small UAS must hold a remote pilot airmen certificate with a small UAS rating.” Leptron pilot instructors offer the experience, knowledge, and authority to prepare students for the Aeronautical Knowledge Exam. The ground school module in combination with flight training gives students a thorough perspective of airspace and how to share it responsibly.
Remote Pilot Prep
The National Airspace System (NAS) is the busiest and most complex airspaces in the world. There are many moving parts including a new regulatory environment.
As you continue to read on, education is paramount to becoming certified.
Students learn how to read aeronautical charts to identify airspace classifications, obstructions, restricted airspace, controlled airspace, and other information applicable to UAS operations.
Knowing airspace is the responsibility of those who occupy it.
Communication and Authorization
UAS flight in certain classifications of airspace requires prior authorization from the ATC. Learn about terms, definitions, and resources to communicate with appropriate personal. Additionally, learn about filing NOTAMs and locating TFRs.
Part 107 outlines rules that must be followed when flying UAS for both commercial and public missions. Learn about other factors that affect pre-flight planning and mission execution.
Leptron pilot instructors will also provide valuable techniques to assess risk and avoid disaster.
Obvious environmental conditions can affect UAS mission work. Its conditions that aren’t that obvious that commonly put remote pilots at risk. Learn how to assess environmental conditions that give pilots peace of mind.
Take a Ride
Students who attend Leptron’s Flight Training and UAS Remote Pilot Certificate Prep course are given an opportunity to ride in a manned airplane alongside one of our certified pilots. The experience provides another perspective of the airspace that both manned and unmanned aircraft share.
Where is Leptron UAS Flight Training held?
The Leptron UAS training facility is located in Denver, Colorado. Training is held where Leptron’s UAS are designed, manufactured, and supported.

What is the course duration?
Leptron understands that your time is valuable. Leptron’s flight instructors have consolidated UAS Flight Training and Remote Pilot Prep content into a comprehensive 5-day course.
Classes are scheduled for the second full week of each month.
Course work is conducted Monday – Friday 8 am – 5:00 pm.
How much flight experience will I receive?
Leptron instructors strive to provide the most flight time possible. You will be flying basic maneuvers by day-one. The course is progressive, so as you become comfortable with piloting the UAV, more advanced maneuvers will be introduced. The course includes a pilot-log book where you can begin tracking UAS pilot flight time.
What experience is recommended to attend?
Leptron caters to students from all experience levels and backgrounds. Leptron instructors will work with you one-on-one through interactive discussion, flight training, and exam preparation.
