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.
