Today, we’re so excited to release another Part 107 Pilot Feature. Meet Aquilino Cabrias, Jr.!
Aquilino is a licensed civil and structural engineer. But he’s not all work — he loves to play by riding around on his mountain bike. He thought it would be pretty cool to be able to record himself while riding his bike. Action cameras like GoPros are great, but there’s only so much you can do with them.
And thus, Aquilino’s interest in drones bloomed.
Then he got thinking: It’s possible to use drones in relation to engineering work, too. But if you’re going to use drones for work, you need to be Part 107 certified, and there are a lot of things you need to know before you take that FAA knowledge test.
So Aquilino contacted us here at 2cofly, and he got access to our very own Part 107 online course. When he logged on, most of the topics were completely new to him. And even some topics that are familiar to us, like weather, were pretty difficult.
But our course is mostly in video format, and it is structured in a way to help anyone — even a total beginner to drones — to be able to follow along easy. As Aquilino said, our online course “presented the topics in a very well-organized manner that made me understood the lessons quickly and easily.”
Aquilino has 3 tips for any future test-taker of the Part 107 test
Stick to the topics covered in the online course.
Prepare enough time to study each topic, and create a schedule to make sure you follow through.
Study, focus, and master the lessons you scheduled.
Now Aquilino not only continues to fly his drone as a hobby, but he is also ready to use it for his engineering work as the need arises.
It's so great to have you in the Guam drone community, Aquilino!
