Key Concepts for New Users
Free Course about Drone or UAS safety and Operation
In January, Embry-Riddle Worldwide will offer its fifth MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) to anyone with an Internet connection and a desire to learn about aviation. And it is free!
The course, “Unmanned Aerospace Systems (UAS) – Key Concepts for New Users,” runs from Jan. 11 to 24. Register now.
The increasing popularity of UAS or recreational drones has created new safety challenges within the National Airspace System (NAS). Led by Embry-Riddle Worldwide faculty, the MOOC will address airspace issues – along with UAS basics, UAS operating environment and the do’s and don’ts of UAS / recreational drone operations. The primary goal is to educate new UAS users about effective operating procedures that foster safe UAS operations.
This MOOC, Unmanned Aerospace Systems (UAS) – Key Concepts for New Users, is expected to be followed by more free online courses from Embry-Riddle professors specializing in other aviation and aerospace fields. So if learning about unmanned aerospace systems does not interest you, there is bound to be a MOOC that piques your aerospace interest in coming months.
