Event Description:

This course, Unmanned Aircraft Systems 1, is the first step to becoming a professional UAS (drone) pilot. It is designed to help people prepare to pass their FAA Remote Pilot Certificate Examination (FAA Part 107 Exam). Additionally, those students sponsored by their organization can complete a project based on their sponsor’s needs. This can include thermal roof inspections, modeling or other projects.

Learn unmanned aircraft best practices and the basics of data processing software.  Gain practical proficiency with hands-on flying, and learn about flight weather data interpretation, flight planning, airspace, map reading, and use of platforms to perform video and mapping tasks.

The course is intended for people who want to become more proficient pilots, flying safely and legally.  This includes people interested in using the technology for work or commercial ventures, as well as hobbyists and people who may be interested in becoming aircraft pilots.
