APPLY DRONE TECHNOLOGY TO YOUR BUSINESS

At the request of Colorado construction contractors, Next Gen has created a professional drone flight training curriculum to help them save money, improve safety conditions, and manage projects more efficiently and effectively. We offer two courses, Intro to Drones for Commercial Applications (classroom) and Hands-On Drone Flight Training. 

HANDS-ON DRONE FLIGHT TRAINING

Basic Quadcopter Flight Skills

Our unique indoor flight training methodology uses model quadcopters (currently the Syma X5C without FPV) flying indoors. By flying indoors, students do not need to contend with wind or other weather conditions and allows them to focus solely on controlling the aircraft. Our course will bring students through a series of increasingly difficult exercises and having them flying through an obstacle course by the end of the day.

Course includes:

  • SYMA X5C quadcopter (fixed camera) and USB charger (included in the cost of this course)

This approach develops three primary proficiencies...

  • Identifying flight system orientation 
  • Accounting for issues related to depth perception 
  • Flying without dependency on GPS
This course creates safe, capable pilots who can confidently fly the aircraft when there is a situational requirement for manual flight control. 

Delivery of Course:

  • Instructor-led (Classroom) All training is performed indoors
  • 8 hours, Non-Credit

Prerequisites:

  • Participants must be at least 18 years old 

Participants interested in pursuing an FAA remote pilot certification should supplement this course with Intro to Drones for Commercial Applications and the FAA Drone License: 107 Test Prep course, which is designed to prepare operators to successfully pass the FAA certification test and achieve remote pilot certification.

INTRO TO DRONES FOR COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS

Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems, otherwise known as drones, are a dynamic, emerging technology that will literally transform how industries function. This 8-hour course is a comprehensive overview of the information your organization needs to start using drones safely and legally. In this course, we cover the types of flight systems available, their capabilities, and how to pick the one that would be best for your organization.
