UAV Training for Aerial Security Develop the skills needed to safely operate small Unmanned Aerial Systems for security applications.
Having an eye-in-the-sky is an enormous advantage for security teams. Drones fixed with high-zoom and FLIR cameras can be rapidly deployed to provide instant aerial coverage of a secure perimeter. Our aerial security courses are designed to keep pilots safe, informed, and equipped to conduct thorough perimeter searches, night operations, and surveillance. We offer courses for people of every skill level. For new pilots, we offer both in-person and online courses that lay the proper foundation for further advanced aerial security training.

Standard Operating Procedures Manual
Developing a thorough customized Standard Operating Procedures Manual takes time. Our Chief Flight Instructor will work with you and your team to create a unique document that covers UAS operations, FAA requirements and regulations, administrative considerations, mission specific protocols, pre-flight checklists, crew briefing, aircraft inspections, in-flight procedures, data collection procedures, emergency procedures, and more.
Airspace Authorizations and Waiver Submissions
The FAA has laid out all of the regulations and limitations under which commercial sUAS pilots can operate. For some companies, the need may arise to conduct missions outside of these guidelines. To fly in controlled airspace, drone pilots need to apply for an Airspace Authorization Waiver from the FAA. To go beyond the FAA Regulations under Part 107 such as night flights, an application for a Waiver must be made to the FAA and additional training may be required. Our team can help you navigate this process.

As I was new to the drone world, I wanted to find a class that would not only cover the basics but also included flying time without having to use my own drone. The instructor delivered on the expectations of the learning objective and used their own experiences to assist with teaching.
Michael FowlerSecurity Manager, Wentworth-Douglass Hospital
We considered ourselves fairly "ready" and even questioned if we needed training. What turned out was a very extensive course. We implemented the techniques and skills learned and have already started practicing with them. The course was everything we needed and then some.
Joel A. Morales, IIICrime Scene Investigation Unit , McAllen Police Department
The instructor did a great job of getting us up to speed on the general aviation concepts. He did a fantastic job of getting us up and flying our drones. By the time we finished the course, our entire team was able to operate the crafts with confidence.
