    I have been watching all the news about the new 107 rules and classes, etc. Classes are popping up on/ for the test. I don't know about other places but there is information at the FAA site for approved training/testing businesses. I have clients wanting me to fly but I want the official license first so:

    While the rule doesn't officially go into affect until 8/29 I think, I found a school that is offering 2 day classes, with all study materials (and lunch) included for $150 and I can get in a couple days (8/25-26) before the rule even starts. They will handle the testing and subsequent app with the FAA also (they said the FAA fee for the commercial 107 license will be about $175).

    If interested, PM me and I'll send all the info.

    You can see the list for the whole U.S. at:
    http://www.faa.gov/training_testing/testing/media/test_centers.pdf

    There are 2 places in AQ that are going to offer the class which are:

    BODE AVIATION DOUBLE EAGLE II AIRPORT, 7401 PASEO DEL VOLCAN NW (505) 884- 4530
    or
    DEL SOL AVIATION 2501 CLARK CARR LOOP S.E. (505) 242- 2701

    Bode is less than 10 min from my house so I contacted them. The guy at Bode told me they are offering a class in August and one in September. I paid for the one in August though I haven't actually been told yet that I got in that one. If you want to try to get in one of those, call Bode and ask to speak to Ellis about the drone/quad/FAA 107 school.

    For the 107 requirements see:

    and, if you want to get a book early to start learning this stuff see:

    Hope that helps.
