Registration open for drone class

Aug 21, 2017

For those interested in becoming a commercial drone pilot, registration is now open for classes this fall.

Instructor Travis Snyder will prepare future drone pilots for the working world by covering in depth the CFR 14 Part 107 requirements by the Federal Aviation Administration to become a commercial remote pilot.

The course offers hands-on flight training with multiple systems so students will understand a variety of mission planning software, ground stations, and radio setups. Students can expect to gain the necessary knowledge needed to be a competent commercial pilot once completing the course.

Snyder is the chief pilot of Global Professional Drones Services and holds a pilot’s license for manned aircraft as well as commercial drones.

The course is available twice this fall and is a hybrid class with both online course work and hands-on drone flight. The first course is Aug. 28-Sept. 15 with flight day on Sept. 16. The second course is Sept. 18-Oct. 6 with flight day on Oct. 7. The fee is $299.
