Undergraduate Catalog 2016-2017 [Archived Catalog] [Archived Catalog]
THIS COURSE IS OFFERED RESIDENTIALLY ONLY
This course is designed to provide the training required to operate a medium UAS in the national airspace system and overseas. Normal procedures will be the emphasis of this course. This course will build upon the training acquired in AVIA 335, Command and Control of UAS. Those fundamentals will then be applied to actual flying of a medium class 2 or 3 UAS. Classroom instruction will be followed by simulators each day to reinforce the learning. Once the operator demonstrates proficiency through academic tests and flights in the simulator, they will move to flying operations of the UAS in national airspace approved by the Federal Aviation Administration.
