Professional drone training
Sporty’s is proud to partner with Unmanned Safety Institute, the world’s leading provider of safety education and training services for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS, or drones). With years of experience as both pilots and UAS operators, the team at USI focuses on practical knowledge and responsible flying habits. Their courses are a great way to prepare for the Remote Pilot Knowledge Test, which is required by FAA Part 107 for commercial operations.
UAS Ground School Course
This in-depth Ground School Course is a comprehensive training program, perfect for commercial operators and pilots of larger UAS. Over 24 hours of training covers all the essential topics, including:
- Parts of a UAS
- The Responsible UAS Operator
- UAS Concept of Operations
- Human Factor and Crew Resource Management for UAS
- Identifying Hazards
- Aeronautical Decision Making for Small UAS Operators
- Dealing with UAS Emergencies
Each segment includes a video introduction, followed by narrated slides with pictures, animations and key information. Following the lesson, assignments help you apply the knowledge you just learned, from reading relevant FAA documents to listening to live ATC. Then, assessments help review essential information with quizzes and essays. Much more than a "drone 101" video, this comprehensive course emphasizes good decision making and a safety culture. UAS flight instructors are even available to answer questions. Includes completion certificate.
