MERI Host “Flight School” August 28th & August 29th

The Meadowlands Environmental Research Institute will host a series of Flight Maneuver classes for commercial drone operators. The course will be taught by Jim Blanchard, ScD, Chief Scientist at UAS Academy*.

The intent of this course is to provide a basis for internal pilot training requirements. The course is satisfactory to meet the intent of the FAA COA Authorization of “self-certifying” for a public agency flying sUAS that use the DJI GO Application on iPad devices as the primary ground control station (cockpit) of the operations in Line Of Sight (LOS); Day VFR missions.

The course is 50% flight operations and 50% pre-flight and post-flight assessment required to master all of the maneuvers in the course guide.
