CrossFlight's Mission and Vision is to become the US and Industry leader in delivering premier Aerial Inspections, UAS Training, and Consulting services. We strive to educate and train students to safely and efficiently operate and understand the capabilities and limitations of commercial drones. We desire to introduce a younger generation to drones through industry leading STEM education in High Schools and using drones as a resource for enhancing student learning and exposure to careers in aviation, robotics, communications, and other technical fields. We assembled a world-class team of industry professionals to serve our customers and to enhance the safety of the commercial drone industry.
The growing number of commercial drones have exceeded the number of commercial airplanes in the National Airspace System (NAS). We saw a growing number of non-aviation professionals who were operating drones for recreational and commercial purposes without training and knowledge of the NAS. The drones are the largest fleet of aircraft in the world today, and the professionals from CrossFlight are training the next generation about the important nature of this industry and how to safety operate drones with manned aircraft and other air vehicles. We have a big mission and vision, but with God’s help we can achieve great things.

I took three different online Part 107 classes and failed my FAA exam after each one. It wasn’t until I attended your class at Trident Tech that I finally felt like I was learning. And I passed my exam with a 90%! Thanks!
