Drones are here to stay.
They are complex robots and require skillsets from numerous disciplines.
We recognize this. The same size does not fit all. Our program choices are designed to suit every need.
Drones are an undoubtedly an emerging technology, but a drone is only a tool and a tool works best when someone skilled is handling it. Our STEM-based programs teach how these machines operate, which parts do what, and how to service your machine on site. Critical skills for any pilot and is required by most aviation certifications. Both mechanical and intellectual aptitudes are honed to a fine skill.
Understanding the mechanics is one thing, but developing the skill to recover from an unforeseen circumstance is paramount. Many professional drone pilots developed their skills with mini and microdrones. These drones do not have any backup systems ie GPS or compass that the advanced units use for safe flight. These systems are great, but knowing what to do when something goes wrong is the difference between a successful flight and a catastrophic failure.
