As the name suggests, this fully online course provides comprehensive instruction on the essential aspects of operating a UAS in the national airspace. The course starts with the same curriculum and content as the Part 107 Exam Prep course. You will then move into flight training with our cutting-edge simulator. You will fly over 50 unique missions to learn stick control and how to operate a UAS.
There are 14 drones in our library simulating how different aircraft navigate real-world environments. The software and USB-connected controller are provided with the course. Finally, you will learn to collect drone images and turn them into 3D maps, models, and surveys.
You will also learn to determine quantities from the data and share digital 3D as-builts with clients and customers. The course is not robo-graded.
