Map and Directions

Are you thinking about buying a drone? Do you have a toy drone and want to upgrade to something bigger and better? What is a drone anyway? What can you do with one? This course will answer these questions and more. Designed for hobby drone enthusiasts of all skill levels, this six-session course provides the general knowledge to fly small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS), otherwise known as drones. Learn about the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations for safely operating drones for either hobby or commercial use. In addition, you will learn about the history and application of drones, basics of flight, radios & electronics, aerial photography, first person view (FPV) and helpful smartphone apps. There will also be drone flight demonstrations. This course is a prerequisite for the FAA's Remote Pilot Certification course (date to be determined) to prepare for commercial drone pilot certification. Youth 15+ may register.

Pre-registration required.
