Flying Drones for Fun and Profit--A Two Day Workshop
Discover exactly how they work and how current drone technology is being used today. Learn about the strategies and tactics of being a safe and successful drone pilot. This workshop is “hands-on” for anyone who wants to learn the basics of flying drones--no previous experience of flying drones is required. Day 1: “Pilot Ground School” is held in the classroom, where you will explore the principles of how drones work and the diverse ways they are being used today. Learn about the latest FAA rules, regulations and related information for flying your drone safely and legally. Also discussed are: the different types of drones available today and what type of drone is right for you, what specific apps to use, accessories needed, and explore some of the unique ways you can actually make money flying them. Day 2 meets at Anderson Park (just a few minutes from the LLU office) where we go over the “Pre-Flight Checklists” and then take to the skies. Learn how to manually takeoff and land your drone safely, and experiment with different flight orientations and get completely comfortable with using the flight controller and other important drone maneuvers that will help you to develop your skills as a safe, confident drone pilot. If you have your own drone, please bring it with you for the second part of the class.
