Learn to Fly the Next Horizon in Aviation - Fixed Wing Drones!
Drones are in many ways no different than full-scale aircraft, including the differences in how to fly rotorcraft versus fixed wing aircraft. When you fly full-scale, you have to pick a "track" to learn to fly- fixed wing or rotary. This is because the skill sets aren't exactly the same.
Interestingly enough though, the skill sets between fixed wing full-scale airplanes and fixed wing drones are very similar in many ways- most people just don't know it or know how to fly fixed wing drones!
We are at a super exciting turning point in the Aviation and Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) industry, as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) formalizes rules for Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) (flying past what the unaided eye can see) so the Amazon’s, Walmart’s/Flytrex’s, Zipline’s, etc., of the world can start logistics flights (AKA delivery!) with drones.
When we ask people what they think of when they hear the word “drones”, they automatically think of quadcopters. Little emphasis has been given to fixed wing iterations of drones- or how to actually fly them.
This is why we're so excited to be bringing you the first-of-its-kind Fixed Wing Drone Ground School- so you can learn all the tactics, tradecraft, and technique to fly smart, safely, and have fun doing it too!
