DJI New Pilot Experience 2015

newpilot banner

Feel the thrill of flight with a DJI Phantom! Register for the DJI New Pilot Experience today.

In 2014, DJI held events in 40 cities around the globe and we are excited to be visiting even more cities in 2015. These free events serve as an introduction to the DJI Phantom and are designed to expose first-time pilots to the techniques needed to become a safe and capable pilot. 

Following a 1-hour classroom session, participants will head outdoors to get some hands-on flight experience with a Phantom, under the guidance of an experienced instructor. At the end of the event, attendees will have a chance to win a special offer on a new Phantom 3 Professional. 

After seeing the world from above and becoming a more skilled pilot, you can share your aerial artwork on SkyPixel, a vibrant online community featuring the best aerial photography and videography.

Register today and learn what it’s like to be a DJI pilot!


The Key Takeaways from this event are:

  • - Brief introduction to DJI
  • - Explanation of the Phantom’s outstanding features 
  • - Introduction to the pre-flight checklist and safe operation procedures
  • - Basic flight control and maneuvers
  • - Post-flight debrief
