Great Lakes Air Operations offers training for the FAA's Part 107 test. Those who pass the FAA's Part 107 test will receive a Remote Pilot License with a small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) rating and can fly for non-recreation purposes. In-person Drone System and Flight Training courses are also offered.
Special courses are routinely held for law enforcement officers and firefighters, and are geared toward public safety professionals. Since mid-2018, Great Lakes Air Operations has proudly trained hundreds of professionals from 94 agencies (federal, state, county, local, tribal, and college/university) and companies in Alabama, Florida, Michigan, and Ohio. For Michigan agencies, these courses are registered with the Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards (MCOLES) for the use of PA 302 Law Enforcement Distribution funds.
