UAV/Drone Training Program Confirmed
Spaceport Indiana is confirming that it will offer Indiana's first UAV training program. This unique opportunity will expose students to the entire domain of UAV operations. "Simply flying a vehicle is a small part of the total understanding of operations in this environment." says SPI President Brian Tanner. The focus of the program will be on the system and profile development for flying routine and special operations. Understanding ground stations, sensors, operational environment and regulations will be part of the training. SPI staff have experience with many UAV systems and operations. Students will interface with some of the most experienced professionals in the industry and be prepared to take the role as pilots, planners and operational developers for a variety of new customers. Those interested in the program can email SPI at UAVTraining@spaceportindiana.com. The program will open to regsitration in Fall 2013.
