Basic UAS Operations Training for Law Enforcement

The Basic Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Operations class is designed to provide students with fundamental knowledge and practical skills necessary to safely and efficiently operate unmanned aircraft systems in a variety of LEO applications. This comprehensive course aims to equip participants with a solid foundation in UAS technology, regulations, flight planning, and best practices. This course is ½ classroom and ½ practical flight. So there will be a considerable hands-on portion. Students of all skill levels will be introduced to basic flight maneuvers and participate in a flight standards evaluation. Students also walk away with an editable PDF resource to use and implement into their agency.
