Regular price $499.00 Sale

AU Academy is pleased to introduce our Introduction to Drone Flight* course, which we've offered for 4 years as part of the AU107 course, as a one-day standalone course. This course is designed to give students a solid introduction to professional, safe, and legal drone piloting and mission management. 

No drone experience is required!  No drone license is required!  This is an excellent way to get acquainted with the execution of a drone mission.  If you're researching the drone industry, you can get basic flight experience in this course and decide later to attend our AU100 Drone License Prep course to earn your drone license.

In this one-day course, an AU Academy instructor will provide an introduction to drone mission planning and drone control. At a flight practice location you will practice launches and landings, "nose-out" flight maneuvering, and "nose-forward" or "functional" flight maneuvering. In later flights you will simulate inspections of ground objects. The flight instruction will use non-camera DJI Phantom drones. Later flights may include a DJI Mavic Pro.  Attendees will received a course Certificate of Training.

Students and the instructor will communicate to choose a training day based on instructor availability, student preference, and weather. The instruction day will last from approximately 8 AM to 3PM. The meeting location and flight location will be arranged with the instructor. Our flight instruction area is based in the "Tech Center" area of southeast Denver.

*Instruction days may be rescheduled or canceled due to operational necessities. Best efforts will be made to meet student needs, or appropriate refunds will be provided. Up to 3 students may be scheduled for a class.

We invite prospective students to contact us to confirm a training date before they enroll in the course. Contact us at
