UAS Basic maneuvering
Who this course is for:
This course is for detectives, investigators, police officers, SWAT, fire marshals, fire & rescue, and other first responders who have minimal knowledge and/or experience operating UAS (unmanned aircraft systems) who would like to become a more fluent and proficient remote pilot.
The purpose of our UAS Basic Maneuvering course is to educate law enforcement, fire & rescue, and other first responders on aviation law and regulations, flight mechanics, airspace, meteorology, pre- and post-flight operation, safety, and piloting skills. By the end of the course, each student will be able to determine if flight is permissible due to weather conditions, conduct pre- and post-flight protocol, as well as be fluent and proficient in performing basic maneuvering skills with their UAS – with VLOS and BVLOS.
Upon completion of the classroom instruction, the student will be able to:
Understand aviation laws and regulations with UAS.
Analyze weather and terrain data for safe flying in extreme weather conditions.
Create a pre- and post-flight safety protocol for the use of their department’s UAS.
Decide which safe actions to take in the case of an emergency with the UAS.
Upon completion of the basic maneuvering training, the student will be able to:
Demonstrate proficiency (VLOS and BVLOS) in hovering, positioning, turning, traversing, orbiting, spiraling, descending, ascending, accelerating, and decelerating with the UAS.
Operate the UAS over, under, around, and through obstacles with VLOS and BVLOS.
