Aviation Science: General Courses


Unmanned Vehicles and Systems Operations

This course serves as follow-on to the introductory Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) course. It builds on the student's understanding of UAS history, technology, and regulations and builds on those to provide a basis for operating small UAS platforms (<55 pounds). Students will gain additional exposure to a variety of UAS operations, including aerial imaging, and search and rescue operations. Additional flight operations will be conducted in a controlled environment to provide exposure to real-world situations, with the intent of preparing the student for the FAA's (to be published) UAS Operator Certificate.
