Course Details

This course is the result of a collaboration between the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) and King Schools. AUVSI is the world's largest unmanned systems nonprofit organization. Serving more than 7,500 members from government organizations, industry and academia, AUVSI is committed to fostering, developing, and promoting unmanned systems and robotics technologies. The key word when it comes to being a drone pilot is pilot when flying drones, you need to know a significant amount of the same core subjects pilots flying airplanes need to know and fully understand. Those subject areas include:

 ■ FAA Part 107 Regulations

 ■ Aerodynamics

 ■ Sectional Charts

 ■ Airspace

 ■ Weather

 ■ Communications
