What you'll do

Learn the basics of flying a drone & leave w/ amazing photos

Experience what it feels like to have wings! If you've been thinking about flying a drone, but you're not quite convinced, this is the experience for you! You will get a chance to experience flight without having to purchase a drone of your own. I will provide the drone and teach you the basics of flying. By the end of our session, you will walk away with a few photos and videos as well as a basic understanding of how to fly a drone. Perhaps, you'll like it so much, you will end up getting your own. NOTE: This experience may be taught by myself (Elena) OR Sophia, one of our Certified Drone Pilots.

Hi! Elena and Ella here with Women Who Drone. We spark creativity in women and girls with drone technology and a part of this is teaching people how to fly drones to fund our mission! We are both Certified Drone pilots and we both have a passion for capturing the world from above with our drones. For every lesson you book with us, a portion of the funds go back into our educational programming for young girls.

Where you'll be

We will meet at our office in Greenpoint Brooklyn and briefly go over setting up the drone, remote control features, basic flight rules, drone features and finally how to fly.

As gift for my wife, this experience left her retuning home with childlike enthusiasm plus genuine delight. Awe struck and inspired, she immediately started her plans to re-book with Elena and take my daughter along with her. We can't thank you enough Elena.

This is a great experience if you’re into trying new stuff, or if you like taking photos and explore outdoors, I had a great time, I wish I was a little longer playing with the drone but overall I loved it.

This experience made me more confident to fly (after crashing & burning) during my first solo try. Ella is very knowledgeable and is very thorough in giving information. See you in the air!🐧
