Announcing: $500 Scholarships for the Drone License Course!

Posted by Greg DePrez on Feb 20, 2019 10:48:22 AM

For over two years, we at Aeon Unmanned have enjoyed helping dedicated students get started in a new drone career by welcoming them to our Part 107 Drone Test Prep and Flight Intro course! 
For many, the drone license course and the FAA exam are a big investment.   To make it easier for committed folks to earn their Remote Pilot licenses, we are awarding a $500 tuition scholarship every month for three months to a student taking our Test Prep and Flight course!

Aeon Academy is pleased to announce that we will award a $500 scholarship to an attendee of each of our next three Part 107 Test Prep and Flight Intro courses. This can be applied to course tuition. We will name the scholarship recipient before each month's class.

Then send your email to us at "" with this subject: "Drone Course Scholarship Application."  Send it by the deadline listed below for your preferred course date.
