Drone Curriculum (Level III) – Qualified for Flight
In the Qualified for Flight Level III kit, students will gain valuable experience in piloting small, aerial vehicles. They will use a simple UAV to learn important vocabulary surrounding the use of personal drones. Every student will take turns piloting the drone and also acting as the Visual Observer to develop good habits for safe flying. Each module is designed to progressively build on the previous, challenging students to increase knowledge and experience from piloting missions and challenges. At the end of the course, students will verbalize important basic features of drones as well as vocabulary of movement in space. Students will gain hands-on experience piloting and spotting for drone missions. This course is designed to go beyond basic operations and will challenge students to explore complex maneuvers, rules for flying outdoors, as well as legal and social issues regarding public and private use of drones.
