Course Description

This course is designed to teach the student how to fly a quadcopter (or any other multirotor drone).  Everyone goes through different struggles when piloting a quadcopter for the first time. Multirotor flying definitely has a learning curve.

So, if you’re having trouble flying your quad, you’re just getting started, or you’re looking to hone your skills — don’t worry.

You’re in the right place.

Teaching Methods

Class Policy:  Students will be expected to be on time to class and back from breaks.  Only 6 tardies will be allowed out of the 8-week program.  This will be broken in two parts; class arrivals are the first part and arriving back from breaks is the second part.  Each student gets 3 excused absences.  Each is up to the student to catch up on any missing work.  Instructors are not obligated to help the student catch up but will assist the student on what class materials they need to catch up on, i.e., missed test, quizzes and handouts.  Attendance is significant in this program since each class represents a vital portion of the total course.  An excused absence must be given 4 hours before class begins.  Three unexcused absences combined with tardies with subsequently cause the student to be expelled from the program and all material and equipment will be retained by the Academy.

Class Conduct

Class will begin promptly at designated time.

Class will have (2) 15-minute breaks

Drinks may be allowed per Instructor, but classroom will be maintained and cleaned each day.

Students are encouraged to help each other to create an atmosphere of comradery.

Students are expected to keep up with all reading assignments.

Instructors will be available to the students after every class for additional instruction upon request.

The objective is to learn, have fun and enjoy achieving together your individual goals.
