sUAS Intro, Drone Piloting

DCB 2164

This course is comprehensive, hands-on training that gives you all the vital skills and information you need to start piloting drones safely and legally. This emerging technology will transform industries and have a substantial economic impact. This course also covers the types of flight systems available, their capabilities and which one would be best for your use; how drones can be used in business and industry applications, how to apply drone technology to bring efficiencies to business as well as reviewing drone photography and videography skills. Topics covered include flying multi-rotor and fixed-wing drones, indoor flight training, diverse flight systems, maintenance, registration and certification requirements, safety, insurance, industry applications, featured systems (DJI, Yuneec, etc.), emerging technologies, and the latest FAA policies. Our unique indoor flight training methodology uses model quadcopters (currently the Syma X5C without FPV) flying indoors without wind/weather through obstacle courses. This approach develops three primary skill proficiencies: dealing with flight system orientation, depth perception and flying without dependency on GPS (lost GPS signal is a key factor in many drone crashes). SkyOp has found these are the essential skills needed to create the safest, most proficient remote pilots and are easily transferred into more advanced drone flight systems. You will receive a workbook, a training quadcopter with a camera, and a computer flight simulator with a radio controller and a training certificate of completion.
