In September, the FAA projected that one million drones would be sold around the holidays. If the estimations are correct, there are a lot of unmanned aerospace systems (UASs) taking to the skies with inexperienced pilots.
But fear not; Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University - Worldwide is offering a free online course for new UAS users this month.
Addressing airspace and safety issues, Embry-Riddle's primary goal is to educate UAS users with procedures that foster safe operations.
The "Unmanned Aerospace Systems (UAS) – Key Concepts for New Users" program is a comprehensive two-week course that covers the basics of UAS-flying for recreational, public or commercial operations, including the operating environment and the do's and don'ts of UAS-flying.
