Butler Tech has identified drone technology as having significant future impact on careers, with applications across a wide range of industry. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) projects that commercial drone sales will skyrocket from 600,000 in 2016 to about 2.7 million by 2020.
Drones are increasingly being used in agriculture, news gathering, utility inspection, public safety, and supply chain management. The Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International estimates there could be more than 100,000 drone-related jobs created by 2025, including an estimated 2,725 jobs in Ohio.
The Drone Ground School course will provide you with the skills needed to pass the FAA’s Part 107 Remote Pilot Certification in Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). Taught by a licensed pilot, you will learn about current drone regulations, sectional charts, weather, flying and drone ethics.
The four sessions that make up this 12-hour course are held on four consecutive evenings.
