Hands-On Drone Flight Training - Basic Quadcopter Flight Skills
Our unique indoor flight training methodology uses model quadcopters (currently the Syma X5C without FPV) flying indoors. By flying indoors, students do not need to contend with wind or other weather conditions and allows them to focus solely on controlling the aircraft. Our course will bring students through a series of increasingly difficult exercises and having them flying through an obstacle course by the end of the day. This approach develops three primary skill proficiencies:
1. Identifying flight system orientation
2. Accounting for issues related to depth perception
3. Flying without dependency on GPS
We’ve found these are the essential skills needed to create the safest, most proficient remote pilots anywhere! We’ve recognized that these basic skills are easily transferred into and prepare students for more advanced drone flight systems. This course creates much safer, more capable pilots who can confidently fly the aircraft in the event of a mission or situational requirement for manual flight control. The cost of this course includes a training quadcopter with a radio controller.
Students who are new to using drones for commercial use should also take the Intro To Drones for Commercial Users and Part 107 Test Prep courses. These courses provide a comprehensive overview of the information your organization needs to start using drones safely and legally and prepare operators to successfully pass the FAA certification test. A bundle discount is available to students that register to take all three courses.
