Residential Program

Our Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) program is the most recent addition to the degree concentrations offered by the School of Aeronautics. You will receive a private license with Instrument certificate just like the other concentrations; however, in addition to this, you have the opportunity to become a certified UAS operator.

With this program, you will be qualified to operate two different UAS aircraft using the most common command and control system currently used in UAS worldwide today. 

AVIA 230 Unmanned Aerial Systems is a hybrid between an academic and a flight line class. It covers many aspects of UAS. Training is provided in the Dragon Eye with academics, simulators, and flying the aircraft in restricted airspace close to Liberty University.
