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.
