Introduction to Aircraft (Drone 1) course is now one semester. Drone 2 is a separate course which strives to help pilots master both photography and videography, as well as expose them to 3D imaging and modeling techniques being used with drones today. Drone 2 is also a one semester course.
Most drone pilots have been working as independent contractors although some corporations hire them for year-round jobs rather than having to contract out their inspection work. Jobs pay from $150-$750 on average, depending on the time involved. Real estate sales businesses are large users of drone pilot expertise. It is very common now for home buyers to go to a realtor's website, choose a home for sale, and be able to view aerial photographs or videography of the real estate they are interested in. Farms and ranches are now including aerial 3D models of the land for sale, showing potential buyers the lay of the land which they would be hard pressed to even see when driving through the land.
