OUR MISSION

EDUCATE

Vortex UAS has established itself as a leader in Professional UAS Pilot Training and UAS Services. Under the guidance of pro pilots with decades of experience in both the manned and unmanned aviation, Vortex UAS has become synonymous with the highest level of quality available. Whether you’re looking to capture specific data, looking for in-house training for your own pilots or looking to enter the industry as a UAS Pilot, we’re here to provide what you need.

ADVOCATE

Aerial operations using Unmanned Aircraft Systems are Safer, Cheaper and Faster for nearly every operation for which manned aviation has previously been used. This provides an opportunity for companies to achieve the same or better results using Unmanned Systems rather than manned, making operations more efficient and more profitable. Vortex UAS advocates for the safe and timely implementation of Unmanned technology which will undoubtedly change our lives for the better.

FACILITATE

Vortex UAS facilitates the expeditious and safe implementation of Unmanned Systems into the National Airspace. Professional Remote Pilots must have the knowledge of regulations, the knowledge of their systems and the skill to control their aircraft in both normal operations and emergency situations. Vortex UAS facilitates this education by training the next generation of Remote Pilots to the highest standard of excellence with a number of courses that provide both knowledge and skill components.
