Next to nothing! All you have to provide is an instructor, ensure you have a facility to host a seminar, tables and chairs for participants, and a screen and speakers for the presentation. We recommend that you also offer refreshments. AOPA will provide the engaging presentation and all the materials.
No written material is required on your part; however, you may want to supplement our slides and handouts with information about your school.
You are responsible for providing a Certificated Flight Instructor or Ground Instructor with either a FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate or the equivalent drone experience. AOPA has created a fun and engaging presentation along with a Presenter Guide to help your flight instructors prepare to deliver and engage the attendees.
The presentation is designed to be completed in 5 ½ hours, but we encourage you to spend some time before and after the seminar to get to know your attendees.
