This enhanced five-day program results in the attendees walking away as proficient UAS pilots in many facets. This program extends the Basic Multirotor Flight Training to include 10 hours of hands on flight training, as well as additional training on advanced maneuvers, emergency procedures, and night operations. This training is valuable when the pilot is faced with adverse conditions while flying a UAS during higher risk operations.

Attendees will also obtain instruction on building flight plans with a ground control station. These skills will allow the pilot to build autonomous flight plans and practice crew resource management that is relevant to many UAS applications. K-State aircraft are utilized during this training and the rental fee is included in the registration price.

Attendees must have a Remote Pilot in Command certificate or be enrolled in the sUAS Commercial Pilot Training. 

This course includes the same components of Basic Multirotor Flight Training and UAS Night Operations.  Attendees should not enroll in both courses.
