Drone/UAS Flight School - Hands-on Flying Experience


During this one-day workshop you will operate a drone/UAS first-hand, under the instruction and guidance of an FAA Certified Remote Pilot in Command.

You can feel safe and confident during flight by operating within a controlled and set geofence, utilizing a secondary controller, with the primary controller in the hands of the instructor. You will also have an opportunity to wear First Person View Goggles.

Please Note: You will be required to sign a Safety Waiver prior to flight.
