  • It was one of the most informative and effective training I have been to in my 10 years of law enforcement.  The instructors should be commended for taking the amount of information and condensing into relevant easily applied content for the certification and implementation of an sUAS program. Again thanks for the chance to attend. ~Stephen Hellman

  • After calling other vendors, CompassDrone was the only one that focused on what I needed to be successful in drone mapping.  They helped me get trained and licensed and then helped me get the drone that I needed for my projects.  I felt they were more concerned with our success than a sale. ~Destry Dearden


  • CompassDrone training was excellent.  The material was well-organized and augmented by the knowledge of an exceptional instructor. Dynamic class participation brought the material to life. ~Karen Brandt

  • After signing up for part 107 training I was not sure what to expect, I knew it was to help pass the FAA part 107 test but did not know the full depth of it. The class was well organized and the instructors really knew their stuff. Cayce Batterson and Donald Schlatter (the instructors) went above and beyond just reading slides of information that will assist us with passing the test even providing sample questions. They shared personal stores and real-life scenarios that they have faced and that we could potentially face. Both men being Airlife Denver pilots gave insight into how sUAS systems can affect their safety on the job. Even if you are just a hobbyist and are not planning to fly commercially I would still highly recommend taking this course so you are aware of what is going on around you in the sky and how to properly operate your drone. ~Talon Matthews, CSU Student
