Keeping Up With The Droneses!

The Future Belongs To Unmanned Systems

Findings show that in the first few years of integration more than 70,000 jobs will be created in the United States with an economic impact of more than $13.6 billion. This benefit will grow through 2025 when we foresee more than 100,000 jobs created and economic impact of $82 billion.e is always the next best model coming out on the market.

Our Program Features

Why learn to build?
Why learn to build?Engineering
Why build drones? Today parents are repeatedly buying store bought drones only for the drone to stop working in a couple of weeks. That’s normally $50-$500 down the drain. So why build drones, because your scholar will learn the following: to fully design, develop, and build custom drones. Scholars will also integrate custom autopilots, GPS/GNSS technologies, and learn about the utilization of open-source electronic hardware and software.
Technology is critical for innovation and matches the new digital technologies curriculum, strongly supported by the universities
Career Ready: Your scholar will have leg up on their peers as their understanding of process design and engineering skills will be above their peers. Our program provides skills useful for future employment or business creation.
Scholars will no longer ask you to buy them a new drone because they will have the skillset to diagnosis, repair, and continue flying the same drone. They will learn how to upgrade a drone with additional features.
Why learn to Code?
Why learn to Code?Technology
Why learn to code? Learning to code teaches scholars a number of life lessons. Learning from mistakes is vital. Scholars learn not to fear mistakes or failure. Success is a scribbly line. Scholars learn persistence pays off as well as teamwork.
Programming can be too abstract. By having to control a physical Drone and seeing what goes wrong, scholars learn what drones can and can’t do. They also learn the need for precise instructions.
Programing Drones helps address the growing demand for teaching science, technology, engineering and math in schools. As well as exemplifying technology directly by programming the drone. Scholars also learn about science, engineering and maths and get an understanding of how these subjects link together.
Computer science forces scholars to take responsible risks and engages scholars in the problem-solving process of trial and error. This encourages scholars to:
• Get out of their comfort zone and have a shot.
• Make a logical attempt to solve a problem.
• Analyze the errors and think about this analysis.
• Apply their thinking while making another attempt to solve the problem.
• Repeat the process, sometimes seeking assistance from a friend, until they have managed to solve the problem
In our programming environment, scholars learn:
• Sequencing is important
• To break big problems into smaller manageable steps.
• Examine examples and apply this knowledge

Scholars creativity is expanded by learning computer science.
Scholars introduced to computer science quickly realize that they have been provided with a new avenue of expression and that creating is more rewarding than consuming.
Scholars prepare yourself for success by learning computer science.
As addressed earlier, ‘future jobs’ are often listed as the main reason students should learn to code. Every company has a presence on the web so understanding how the web operates can assist employees.
Computer science also gives scholars a skill set that can be used to become an entrepreneur and potentially make millions of dollars. Students who gain the skills early can achieve this success at a very young age.
Scholars can change the world with computer science and programming.

Why learn to fly?
Why learn to fly?Aviation
Why learn to fly? Flying a drone is more often than not straight-forward. Why learn to fly …To be safe and keep other safety in mind. Scholars will learn how to fly unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), or drones, and the practical applications of the technology. Scholars will also attend Aviation Ground School.
Scholars will learn how to operate drones safely and ethically by gaining an understanding of the technology itself as well as the laws and regulations surrounding drones.
Scholars will also learn:
-How to set up and calibrate the most popular consumer drones
-How to update the firmware on the aircraft and remote
-Explain and demonstrate the control interface App and optimal settings
-Camera function and settings
-How to avoid common mistakes that lead to fly-aways, crashes, injury and property damage
-A review of the local, state and federal laws regulating drones
-Determining your location and if you are required to notify an airport or air traffic control before flying
-Techniques for capturing great photos and videos
-Flight Simulator training
-Hands-on flight training where scholars will pilot a drone on their first solo mission and take their first “dronie” photo
Part of that learning process is completing a project to explore various industry applications. Students have to collect data using the drones and process that data to create an end product for a company.
Why train?
Why train?Career Focus
Why train?
We’re at a point now where, whether we like it or not, drones are going to become part of our everyday life. Growth in the enterprise sector will outpace the consumer sector in both shipments and revenues as regulations open up Technologies like geo-fencing and collision avoidance will make flying drones safer and make regulators feel more comfortable with larger numbers of drones taking to the skies

Scholars will participate in theory training course. Via ‘ground school, game based learning and theory examination.
Practical flight training (also known as ‘flight school’) is designed to prepare scholars for their practical flight assessment and examination.
Training of take-offs and landings
Manual and GPS-based flying
Practicing position hold, coming home
Training with our latest aircrafts
Software training: Learn crucial elements to a successful mapping mission such as preparation, maneuvers, software, and emergency procedures.
Scholars will train on 3D mapping, construction and agriculture mapping, as well as drone inspections, and aerial cinematography.
Flight training varies widely in scope and quality and can be unstructured, so research carefully what you’re being offered.

The Goal Career ready!
The Goal Career ready!Career Focus
Why a UAV Career?
There are huge numbers of jobs out there. The number is just going to grow. There are literally hundreds of different uses for drones in the industry. The boundaries are limitless.
Scholars who are successful in the program over time will ern their FAA Part 107 Commercial License.
The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, projected more than 100,000 new jobs in unmanned aircraft by 2025
The time for drone technology is now. According to consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), the commercial drone market will be worth US$127 billion worldwide by 2020.
There are lucrative, exciting opportunities out there for anyone who wants to train as a commercial drone pilot. Drones, or UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) are the technology of the future.
Drones as a data service.
We will provide opportunities for high schoolers to do Drone internships and secure careers in the UAV industry.
Below are a few areas scholars can pursue in the UAV industry.
Drone inspection skills

Drones make inspections fast, low-cost and low-risk for your clients, so the demand is enormous. Learning the flight skills you’ll need for different inspections, whether it’s a mobile phone mast, a construction site or a farmer’s field, will help scholars access a large and growing pool of customers.

3D mapping with drones
There’s an equally huge demand for geo-referenced 3D maps, which save your clients money compared to traditional surveying. Learning how to use your drone to capture data and create 3D models will help scholars to build new customer base straight away.
Drone filming
Learning to fly a drone won’t make you a cameraman. If you want to specialize in broadcast quality drone filming, you’ll need advanced skills. Successful drone camera operators travel worldwide, filming for productions. We will be scheduling various trips for scholars to expand their skillset.
Drone post-production skills
Customer are only interested in the quality of the end product you give them. In filming, that means learning how to edit your raw drone footage and transform it into a high-quality video product that tells a story. Scholars will learn to use editing software.
