onGEO, RS&GIS Partner on New Professional Course

We are pleased to announce the newest addition to our professional courses. onGEO has worked with MSU’s RS&GIS to develop: FAA Part 107 Drone Test Prep & Beyond. This course is aimed to prepare registrants for the FAA aeronautical exam that is required to fly non-recreational drones (unmanned aerial vehicles, UAVs).

Flying drones legally for non-recreational applications requires operators to obtain a Remote Pilot Certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The process for obtaining a certificate includes a background check and a passing score on the unmanned aircraft system (UAS) aeronautical exam (part 107).

This course was developed by experienced remote pilots who are also certified GIS professionals. This combination of drone deployment and mapping expertise resulted in a course that is informative and, more importantly, applicable.

This course can be used as a specialization for our GIS Certificate or can be taken individually. It is NOT a required course for the Certificate.

We are now taking registrations for this course.

Please contact Dr. Yi Shi, onGEO @Michigan State University ( for more information.
