ERAU Preparing UAV Pilots

Embry-Riddle’s Prescott campus is offering pilot training for those seeking to fly unmanned aerial vehicles, one of only three universities in the country offering such courses.

According to ERAU, the Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) minor provides the students with an education & training on the various UAS platforms and applications.

The university says the UAS minor will have both classroom and laboratory/simulation classes. This program is designed for any student wishing to become unmanned aircraft pilots or mission payload operators.

The university’s Daytona Beach campus is one step ahead and already offers a B.S. degree in Unmanned Aircraft Systems Science. There is speculation that the Prescott campus will eventually offer a similar undergraduate degree program.

Afterall, it’s a growing field.

If you’re interested, please contact the university.
