[Editor’s Note: Kansas State Polytechnic in Salina was recently named the No. 2 college for drone training in the US by Drone Training HQ.]
Kansas State Polytechnic in Salina will offer courses to help people become Federal Aviation Administration certified commercial drone pilots.
The school will hold two sessions of the course — August 29 to September 2 and September 19 to September 23 — which will help attendees prepare to take the Part 107 written exam that is required by the FAA for commercial drone pilots that don’t already hold a manned pilot certificate.
Attendees will take the test as part of the course after three days of academic preparation. They will also get to fly their drones, which they must provide or rent from the school, under the guidance of instructors to better learn safe operating procedures.
Students of all ages and experience levels are invited to register.
The first session has a registration deadline of August 24th and costs $1,400.
The second has a registration deadline of September 12th and costs $1,450.
More information and registration is available on Kansas State Polytechnic’s website.
The school was recently named the No. 2 college for unmanned aerial systems training in the country by Drone Training HQ.
