VORTEX UAS INTRODUCTION COURSE

The Vortex UAS Intro Course is a beginner class designed for anyone interested in entering the drone industry as a pilot. We discuss current career opportunities in the industry as well as what to expect as the industry matures. We offer an overview of the components and mechanics of the quad-copter as well as its normal flying characteristics. Lastly, we discuss how to fly in a safe and legal manner. This ground school is designed to prepare the student pilot for the Intro hands-on flight training which is offered as the second half of the live, in-person training.

 

Pilots interested in entering the field of Unmanned Aviation are encouraged to continue with the Vortex UAS Advanced and Professional courses. Vortex UAS Pilot Certification is offered to those student pilots who have completed the Professional Pilot course and have passed both the Knowledge test and the Practical (flight skill) test. Online training alone will prepare the student pilot for the Knowledge test, but not the Practical test. We strongly recommend Pilots interested in Vortex UAS Pilot Certification to gain the flight skills required to pass the Practical test either through Vortex Flight Training or through another reputable UAS Pilot Training program.

 

Vortex UAS Pilot Certification is set forth as the highest level standard for Pilots in the UAS industry . It is not, however, an FAA Certification because no FAA Certification yet exists. When the FAA does finalize the sUAS rules and creates the sUAS license, Vortex UAS will train to exceed that standard and provide the opportunity for pilots to earn their sUAS license. In addition, all previously Vortex UAS Certified Pilots will have the opportunity to satisfy the FAA’s requirements for the sUAS license at no additional charge. There is no financial penalty for pilots who start their training now. So what are you waiting for? Let’s FLY!

VORTEX UAS ADVANCED TRAINING

The Vortex UAS Advanced Course is an in-depth class designed for pilots serious about entering the UAS industry. We delve deeply into the components and mechanics of the quad-copter, batteries, controllers, autopilots. We use the DJI Phantom and break down each component of the DJI Go App. We discuss the requirements set forth in the section 333 exemption and what the essential procedures are to legally operate in the National Airspace. This ground school is designed to prepare the student pilot for the Advanced hands-on flight training which is offered as the second half of the live, in-person training.

 

Pilots interested in entering the field of Unmanned Aviation are encouraged to continue with the Vortex UAS Professional courses. Vortex UAS Pilot Certification is offered to those student pilots who have completed the Professional Pilot course and have passed both the Knowledge test and the Practical (flight skill) test.

VORTEX UAS PROFESSIONAL COURSE

Those interested in entering the field of Unmanned Aviation as a professional pilot are encouraged to complete their training with the Vortex UAS Professional course. This course explores the application of sUAS in the four primary use areas of Precision Agriculture, Construction, Aerial Inspection and Aerial Photography/Videography. Vortex UAS Pilot Certification is offered to those student pilots who have completed the Professional Pilot course and have passed both the Knowledge test and the Practical (flight skill) test. Once passing these tests, student pilots will work closely with an instructor pilot who will mentor them in real-world situations and actual operations. Once the student pilot has proven his knowledge and proficiency in the real-world environment, the student will be awarded the distinction of being a Vortex Certified Pilot.

 

Vortex UAS has established itself as a leader in Professional UAS Pilot Training and UAS Services. Under the guidance of Professional Pilots, with decades of experience in both manned and unmanned aviation, Vortex UAS Pilot Certification has set the highest level standard for Pilots in the UAS industry.

 

Vortex Pilot Certification is the culmination of the Vortex Professional Pilot course. Vortex Professional students complete a rigorous course of study that includes Intro, Advanced and Pro ground schools, Intro and Advanced flight training, a knowledge test, a flight test and a mentoring program. The mentoring program requires that the Pro student demonstrates competence in a number of real-world operational situations. A Vortex Certified Pilot will have shown that he is knowledgeable and skilled in the use of sUAS, and knows what must be done to perform operations both safely and legally.
