How is a DroneTogether territory defined?
We define a territory by grouping or gathering Zip Codes. Once a franchisee buys the rights to a territory, it is protected. DroneTogether will not award another franchise in your protected territory.

DroneTogether offers a 30% discount on the Franchise Fee for all veterans who have served in the US military. In addition, veterans will also receive a $1000 commission for all franchisee referrals upon purchase of a territory. Up to 50% of the franchise fee is able to be financed and DroneTogether can connect you with a 3rd party financing organization to assist you.
Where do I conduct DroneTogether activities?
DroneTogether classes can be offered and conducted in any indoor or covered outdoor space. We do not offer activities outside in the open air due to regulations and liabilities. Most often, our classes are conducted at schools, day care centers, businesses, gymnasiums, houses or recreation/community centers.
Do I need a drone license or drone experience to buy a DroneTogether franchise?
Experience with drone flying would be beneficial, but is not required to own a DroneTogether franchise.

Once you sign your franchise agreement and become a DroneTogether franchise owner, you can start building your foundation for success.
