Warm Springs FAA UAS Test Range to offer UAS pilot training course in January
From Jan. 11 to 15, 2018, Warm Springs FAA UAS Test Range will offer a UAS pilot training course to train the next generation of career-oriented UAS enthusiasts to enter the commercial services market.
The training course will consist of four components: Part 107 training to earn FAA certification for safe and legal operations, hands-on flight training to teach the fundamentals of flying a UAS, UAS operational safety training to improve safety and operational performance skills, and a commercial enterprise course to teach UAS enthusiasts how to make money flying UAS.
“A growing number of businesses are using Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS’s) to collect critical data that enhances productivity and cuts costs and they need licensed pilots who can fly drones,” says Liz Stalford, Warm Springs UAS Test Range Manager.
“The people who attend our training program are getting a head start in this exciting and growing industry.”
The course will be hosted at Warm Springs FAA UAS Test Range in Warm Springs, Oregon.
