The mission of the Unmanned Aerial System (UAS)-Drone Applications Certificate is to prepare students to become Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified small Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) Remote Drone Pilots, who are trained to conduct safe, legal, and effective aerial flight operations within the National Airspace System. The core courses supporting this certificate are designed to instruct Remote Drone Pilots in how to fly mission driven and incident-free sorties, and effectively capture/record and post-process aerial imagery.

Note: Students who successfully complete the UAS107 Commercial Drone Pilot Certification Training will be prepared to sit for the FAA Part 107 UAS Remote Pilot Certification Exam, which is the accepted certification for small UAS-Drone Commercial and Municipal Operations.
