The drone industry continues to have a positive impact on many industries like photography, construction, public safety, delivery, inspection and more. There are endless opportunities and careers that are created in this rapidly growing field. Flying drones has a bit steeper learning curve compared to driving a car for instance since there are more degrees of freedom and you controlling the drone remotely. The goal of this course is to bridge that gap by providing the hands-on flight experience needed to fly drones proficiently and safely. After this course, students will have the fundamental skills and knowledge to safely pilot drones.
