Some highlights from another successful UAS training program are pictured below. Praxis Aerospace Concepts Incorporated administered the the course at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). UNLV’s ‘Continuing Education’ department offers a wide variety of courses for individuals who aim to expand their career opportunities, attain professional certifications, or invest in personal growth. The AUVSI Trusted Operator Program certification course is a great fit for the department. Attaining a T.O.P. certificate opens many doors in the rapidly expanding UAS world.
After spending four days in the classroom, students went to the Searchlight Airpark (1L3) to practice various maneuvers and complete their flight assessments. While in the classroom, students learned about the history of unmanned aviation, UAS policies and regulations, drone maintenance, and conducted flight simulations. Each student was thoroughly prepared for flying and mastered the flight maneuvers remarkably fast.
