OUr Drone Pilot School is reaching new heights across north america.

Why learn to fly drones with us?

Due to a shortage of qualified drone pilots in North America for our Mephobia Media workforce, we felt the only way we could continue our trajectory and deliver for our clients in the automotive and film industries, was to bring together our experience, knowledge and unique flair to start Mephobia Media’s Drone Pilot School. 

In order for our students to pass the FAA or TC exams with an extremely high degree of success, we’ve aimed to deliver our material in a fun, interactive environment.

It is our goal to create an experience that will be one of many highlights as you begin your drone journey, and help launch you into a professional career as a licensed drone pilot.


drones are the future across multiple sectors.

From a military innovation, to an exciting hobby, to a technology that’s transforming commercial industries, the use of drones has rapidly changed over the past years — and future opportunities in the field are limitless.

Also known as unmanned aircrafts, drones are already breaking barriers in the way companies do business. Huge corporations like Amazon and Google are testing ways to deliver packages with drones. Facebook is using drones to provide Internet connections in remote locations. And there’s even a start-up that’s using unmanned aircraft to deliver tacos to your door. In short, the drone industry is booming.

Drones are becoming commonplace in both the commercial and non-profits sectors. In the near future their use will be even more widespread.

Here are some of the many ways unmanned aircraft can revolutionize how we get things done. It’s easy to see why drone diploma programs like Mephobia Media’s are more relevant than ever.

  • Agriculture: The Environmental Protection Agency already utilizes drones technology to manage livestock and survey crops. In the future farmers and ranchers could use unmanned aircraft to strategically monitor and spray their crops.
  • Conservation: Unmanned aircraft are being used to monitor endangered species and map the changes in various ecosystems around the globe. As drone technology advances, the use and impact of unmanned aircraft in conservation efforts will expand.
  • Delivery/fulfillment: Anything the postman can carry can also be delivered by drone. Food, prescriptions, that last-minute birthday gift for your dad—in the near future, there will be big changes in the way packages arrive to our doors.
  • Disaster mitigation and relief: Drones can go places that humans can’t access, so they are an ideal solution for dangerous search and rescue efforts, as well as for delivering emergency supplies to remote locations and disaster areas.
  • Logistics: Heavy-duty drones can replace trucks for inventory management and moving goods between warehouses. This is likely to decrease the number of semis you see on the road.
  • Filmmaking and photography: Low-budget filmmakers are already using drones to capture the aerial shots and Hollywood will soon be hiring full crews of drone operators. Unmanned aircraft are also gaining ground with photojournalists who want to capture breaking news from above.
  • ISPs: Big tech companies like Facebook and Google are experimenting with solar powered drone technology to beam Internet to remote locals. This could transform connectivity as we know it.
  • Law enforcement: In Seattle and Miami, police forces have already applied for permits to use drones, and we’ll likely begin to see unmanned aircraft supplementing police presence at large public events.
  • Real Estate: Real Estate listings are poised to change completely with high-definition videos capture by drones that fly through neighborhoods, and into every room in a listed house.

Program Summary

The Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Pilot Course is an on demand program of instruction designed to provide prospective sUAS pilots with the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully challenge and pass the FAA UAG Part 107 or TC TP15623 examination. More importantly the material learned will help foster and grow the newly certified sUAS pilot into a safe, legal, and highly effective member of the UAS industry.

Congratulations, you passed the exam!

You should feel confident challenging the Part 107 or TP15623 Drone Pilot examination after the successful completion of Mephobia Media’s Drone Pilot Course. 

After completion, our successful students will be able to do the following:

  • Have a detailed understanding of the FAA or TC Small Unmanned Aviation Systems (sUAS) requirements for attaining a Remote Pilot License, and be prepared to take the exam at an FAA or TC designated testing center.
  • Understand the current Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations or Transport Canada (TC) requirements that govern, and define, safe and lawful Unmanned Aviation operations within the United States or Canada.
  • Assess the factors that have the potential to introduce risk to UAS operations (e.g., weather, human factors, systems, etc.) and describe how you would mitigate those identified risks.
  • Have an understanding of the working components, systems, procedures and the physics under which unmanned aircraft operate.
  • Assess the airworthiness of your aircraft prior to, during, and upon completion of the flight operation.
  • Access and analyze aeronautical charts and flight publications for the purposes of conducting a site-survey, ATC coordination, property permission, and pre-flight activities.
  • Retrieve weather and NOTAM information and assess the impact on flight operations.
  • Design, implement and exercise standard operating procedures.
