Course Summary

The class consists of three days of intensive scenario-based, hands-on, and precision flight training designed to increase piloting skills and to provide students with the ability to operate in all sUAS environments.  Students will be exposed to the equipment, tools, and techniques necessary to make their sUAS program fulfill the desired mission sets.

We begin by helping students fully realize the potential applications of unmanned aircraft and how they may fit their respective agencies.  This provides a clear understanding of the UAS agency objectives so that all efforts directly support effectively implementing the identified mission sets.  The remainder of the curriculum is precision flight and scenario-based exercises. Students fly inside and outside on multiple aircraft types, using infrared, thermal, and self-illumination views.  Guest speakers and prototype UAS equipment are regular additions to this very popular class.  Students leave operationally ready with a deep understanding of UAS applications and capabilities.

Students will:

  • Demonstrate the skills needed to fly BVLOS or FPV (first-person view)
  • Understand and apply techniques for interior operations
  • Operate as direct support for tactical team operations
  • Examine UAS platforms for Interior, Exterior-high, Exterior-tight, Exterior- persistent, including ground robot integration
  • Demonstrate precision UAS operation for confined spaces and evidence recovery
  • Demonstrate UAS operational proficiency in advanced public safety mission-sets
  • Demonstrate proficiency in sUAS NIST Obstructed and Confined testing
