UAV HANDS-ON FLIGHT SCHOOL WITH VIDEO AND DATA ACQUISITION TRAINING (1-DAY WORKSHOP)

Description

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs or Drones) are quickly becoming a staple in the toolkit of any videographer, and with good reason, they are used not only to create beautiful aerial video, but to collect data that can be used for inspections, agricultural, safety mining, and more. This is accomplished at great cost savings, less risk, and often in places that are inaccessible to manned aircraft. So, it is not surprising that many video professionals are entering the realm of aerial video/data acquisition.

If you are considering adding UAS to your business,  we are here to help make this a painless transition. We have created a hands-on class that will teach the student the basics of how your UAS works and how to practice to master it as soon as possible. We will train you to perform safety checklists for both the environment and the drone, and to get the footage or pictures that you need.
