With expert advice from Gold Seal instructor Meg Godlewski, the material features detailed instructions on how to earn your Part 107 certificate to fly drones for commercial operations. 

107 School has launched its first book, “Launching Your Aviation Career,” from certificated flight instructor Meg Godlewski, as an introduction on how to start, or transition to a career in aviation. “Launching Your Aviation Career” is available from Amazon for $9.99.

Godlewski is a career flight instructor with more than 20 years experience training pilots, and she has conducted more than 5,700 hours of dual instruction. 

There are many career options besides that of a pilot—but the author covers becoming one in detail. The 85-page print edition also features detailed instructions on earning a Part 107 certificate to fly drones in commercial operations, whether the person is new to flying or adding the 107 privileges to a certificate.

Godlewski has been recognized as a Gold Seal Instructor from the FAA and as a Master Instructor from both the National Association of Flight Instructors (NAFI) and the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE). She has written for multiple aviation publications, including FLYING magazine, and she’s an expert in creating scenario-based simulator training. 

107 School offers training to pass the FAA's Part 107 knowledge exam—the test pilots need to pass in order to fly small unmanned aircraft commercially in the United States. It’s a great introduction into the processes and procedures of becoming a pilot, and an inexpensive first aviation certificate to earn. In the book readers will learn the differences between Part 61 and Part 141 flight schools, for example, and how to decide which is best for them, among other key tips for completing the certificate. 

They will also learn about different drone uses, and how to save money during flight training. There are many more jobs in aviation other than that of a pilot: Aviation is a huge industry with almost countless career positions available, in every discipline. 

There are also a tremendous number of industries that use remotely piloted aircraft, and this book discusses some of their use cases. “Pilots who don’t understand how unmanned aircraft are useful may not see how remotely piloted aircraft expand our capabilities,” said John Ellis, co-founder of 107 School.

“Low altitude unmanned missions are an important part of the future.”
