DARTdrones and AOPA Launch Two Co-Hosted Drone Training Workshops to Take Place at AOPA Headquarters

DARTdrones is honored to be working with the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, AOPA, to offer two advanced drone training workshops in 2019. Headquartered in Frederick, MD, AOPA works to protect and grow the privilege of general aviation by providing education, tools, services and more to their community of manned and unmanned pilots.

In 2019, AOPA will be co-hosting DARTdrones’ Aerial Mapping and Modeling Workshop and Aerial Roof Inspections Workshop at their headquarters in Frederick, MD. Both advanced drone training workshops will be a combination of classroom training in AOPA’s You Can Fly Academy and outdoor, hands-on flight experience. Workshops will both be taught by a DARTdrones Flight Instructor.

DARTdrones Chief Pilot and Operations Consultant, Colin Romberger, stated, “As an AOPA member and lifelong aviation enthusiast, I’m very excited to be a part of this year’s co-hosted workshops at the You Can Fly Academy in Frederick, MD! Our sUAS Mapping and Inspections Workshops provide 2-days of true, real world experience in sUAS data capture applications that will give participants the skills necessary to leverage the true power of unmanned aircraft systems for professional applications.”

“We are excited to have DARTdrones bring their advanced drone courses to the AOPA membership”, said AOPA Sr. Director of UAS Programs, Kat Swain. “They have a great track record as a drone education provider and have received great feedback from their students”.
