DRONE TRAINING

A pilot flies a small drone aircraft at set

Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS a.k.a. Drones) are a dynamic, emerging technology that is transforming industries and is projected to have an economic impact of over $100 billion over the next four years. Our specialized training courses take you from learning to fly drones all the way through to preparing for your FAA certification.

Commercial use of drones does require pilots to have FAA remote pilot certification, received upon successfully passing the certification test administered at an FAA-approved facility. Mid's Drone Training is designed to teach drone piloting skills, address the various types of drone systems on the market, identify the potential uses and industry applications for drones, and prepare students to successfully pass the remote pilot knowledge test, required for FAA certification.

Remote Pilot Knowledge Test Prep

Mid’s Remote Pilot Knowledge Test Prep training gives participants a complete overview of the FAA requirements for commercial drone pilots. Anyone operating a drone for any commercial or business purpose must obtain an FAA Remote Pilot Certification. This highly focused training prepares drone operators for the test to receive this certification.

Intro to Drones for Public Safety Personnel

Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (drones) have unique applications for public safety personnel. Drones can put eyes and ears on the ground and in the air in scenarios that would be impenetrable or life-threatening to personnel. This technology has the potential to extend and expand public safety team’s abilities while improving the safety of everyone involved in an emergency. This 24-hour comprehensive training is focused on providing participants with hands-on experiences that help them translate the potential of drones into action. Participants receive information regarding the impact of drones in the public safety sector, data to facilitate informed decisions during the planning stage of drone implementation, and the ability to maximize their return on investment in a drone program.

Trainees receive flight simulator software and a Syma X5C Quadcopter drone.
