Drone Classes

Our partners, Butler Drone Solutions’ support our goal to educate & provide the pathway for our youth to obtain a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) part 107 license, to operate Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)/Commercial Drones.


As a result of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) part 107, to allow companies to operate Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) in the US, the diverse application portfolio of drones is no longer minimized to aerial video and photography. Drones give added value to the healthcare industry for public service missions, organ transplant deliveries, agriculture, surveying lands, wildlife documentation, law enforcement as a first responder, disaster recovery, and more. This diverse application portfolio has encouraged a compound annual growth rate of (CAGR) of 57.5% within seven years (ref. Grandview Research). The drone services market expects to grow to $63.6 Billion by 2025, per Insider Intelligence. Our partnership will provide youth with qualified commercial drone pilot training, FAA-approved, Part 107 certification, and an opportunity to be amongst the first in the market to one of the fastest-growing industries in the world.

What does S.T.E.A.M stand for?

STEAM – Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, & Math

Often there are other variations of the STEAM acronym:

  • STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math.
  • STREAM – Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, & Math
Why is STEAM education important?

As a world leader in industry and economy, STEAM, STEM and STREAM advocates cannot meet the demands of the technical industry in the 21st Century workforce. Over 1 million computer programming and now airline jobs are currently unfilled. Approximately 50% of our engineering workforce is comprised of the H-1B Visa.

What is Eclipsing Innovations?

Eclipsing Innovations is the partnership arm of the organization that foster relationships with community leaders, government officials and educational organizations to support the STEAM programs. 

What is D.A.D.I.E.S.R.I.M.S?

D.A.D.I.E.S.R.I.M.S stands for Danny, Antonio and Donnel Eclipsing Innovations’ Resources and Management Services. It is the partnership arm of the organization that manage secured opportunity resources. 

What is STEM and why does that appear as a US initiative?

The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) is a worldwide study by OECD in nearly 80 nations of 15-year-old students’ scholastic performance on mathematics, science and reading. the United States consistently ranks in the mid to bottom in both math and science.

What skills will I obtain as a volunteer?

Our dedicated volunteers gain leadership, teamwork, problem-solving, communication, and confidence. They are a part of a distinctive S.T.E.A.M team that continues to adapt to the always-growing fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.
