Get Your Wings

What are the Drone Pilot Wings, anyway? When a pilot or astronaut finishes flight training, they get their pilot wings. Astronauts get astronaut wings. You worked hard to fly your first drone, but where are your wings? Well, we have the only authorized Drone Pilot Wings, and they’re exclusive to DronePilotWings.com! We designed them, and we had them made:
Actual size: 2" wide, wing-tip to wing-tip.
Actual size: 2″ wide, wing-tip to wing-tip. Click to see larger.

OK, but Why?

We are promoting safe and responsible use of Drones as a legitimate hobby, as well as useful tools for business, emergencies (such as Search and Rescue support), and photography. Safe and responsible use by the majority reduces the chance of onerous regulation. The wings are a lot classier, more subtle, and frankly cheaper than an “I Are a Drone Pilot” t-shirt. We want drone pilots to be proud of what they do, since it will help prompt them to be better, and more responsible, pilots. Thus, no plastic crap! These wings are custom-made exclusively for us from metal, and then nickel plated for a gorgeous, long-lasting shine. The rear features two butterfly clutches so that when you put them on, they stay straight:

At 2″ wide, they’re large enough to be seen, but not so large that they stick out and dominate your shirt or jacket (or cap) — and the quality is obvious.

And it’s obvious that these are a great gift for your Drone Pilot friends, right?! 🙂

With or Without First Flight Certificate

They come with a color First Flight Certificate to commemorate your First Flight. It’s all mailed in a tube so that the certificate isn’t folded, and can go right into an 8.5×11″ frame. And yes, you can get extra wings so you can have one for your shirt, hat, jacket, or equipment case, and you can also get wings without ordering a First Flight Certificate, if you prefer.

Common Questions

Q: Can I order and specify an anticipated future date for the First Flight?
A: Absolutely! It's great to have the wings in-hand to give to a new pilot right after their first flight -- especially kids!

Q: What if I don't know the exact date?
A: A month/year is fine too.

Q: How much extra is shipping?
A: Shipping is included — that's why prices are slightly higher to Canada and Overseas. The price you see is the full price: no hidden charges!

Q: I need to buy these for more than one pilot. How?
A: You can change the quantity after you click the Buy Now button. Be sure to give us instructions with the pilot names and first flight dates with, or right after, your order.

Q: I'd like to get quite a few for our team/department. Are there bigger quantity discounts?
A: For bulk quantities (more than 10, wings only, not certificates), see our shopping cart.

Q: Are the wings available in gold/brass/other finish?
A: Nope: if they were, they'd of course be shown here. Check with a local jeweler to see if they can help you plate the nickel wings we offer.

Q: I already have (or don't need) a First Flight Certificate. Can I just get the wings and save a little?
A: Sure! See this page.

Q: Can my certificate note my 14 CFR part 107 FAA certification?
A: Yes! When you send the certificate personalization info, note the pilot is certified under the FAA rules (Note: False representation of certification may be a federal crime.) Here's what that looks like:

FAA Certification can be noted on your First Flight Certificate. No other printing alterations are available.
