Come learn about Alta from the source, right here at Freefly headquarters in Woodinville, Washington! We’ll teach you safe operating procedures for the Alta line of drones, from setting up your radio and charging batteries to tuning your system and troubleshooting issues.

We have two class options, depending on what your needs are. Both offer a fantastic instructor to student ratio (max 3 students to 1 instructor) for both classroom and flying field time and the option to use your own Alta, or one of ours (refundable deposit may apply if you fly our aircraft during the class).

Note: To get the most out of this training it is recommended to arrive already comfortable with the ability to takeoff and land in manual mode on a small drone. Nose in flight should also be mastered but we can help!
