All of the basics of starting a drone program from how to pick the best equipment, what to include in a good training curriculum, Federal Aviation Administration requirements and how to fulfill them, developing the appropriate standard operating procedures, mutual aid, and finding the best grants to pay for your program are covered. Emphasis will also be on training on the basics, understanding airspace, weather, aeronautical decision making, medical factors that could affect drone flight, airport environments, and radio communications.

These classes work best when participants are engaged in active discussion, so we will show several videos of various drone scenarios, take an interactive look at various types of airspace, and get hands on with the equipment to the extent we can in an Indoor session.

The objective would be to demystify the drone process for departments who may be unsure of where to begin.
