UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) Academy

All UAVs are drones, but not all drones are UAVs.

A drone is any vehicle that can be remote-controlled. From agriculture to disaster relief to motion picture filming, drones are rapidly changing the way we live, work, and play. A UAV is a remote-controlled vehicle, or drone, that takes to the sky!

Join the UAV Academy and take the first step toward unmanned flight! In the UAV Academy, you will learn the many public and private sector applications of drones, how to confidently operate a drone, and perform visual inspections using drones!
