ClassGraphic Are you thinking about buying a drone or did you get one for Christmas?  What can you do with it?  Where can you fly it? This course will answer these questions and more. Designed for hobby drone enthusiasts of all skill levels, this six-session course provides the general knowledge to fly small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS), otherwise known as drones. Learn about the current and possible future Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations for safely operating drones for either hobby or commercial use. In addition, you will learn about the history and application of drones, basics of flight, radios & electronics, aerial photography, first person view (FPV) and helpful smartphone apps. There will also be drone flight demonstrations. While this course is not intended as preparation for the FAA’s Remote Pilot Certification test for commercial drone pilots, it will cover many of the basics required for the Certification. Youth 15+ may register.
