Reminder: Upcoming Program to Become Certified Drone Pilot

Just a reminder that if you have an interest in obtaining a license to fly an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV aka drone), Purdue Extension will be hosting a virtual program to help you accomplish just that this November. This program is intended to prepare participants for the FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot Knowledge Test, which is a requirement to pass if you are operating a UAV on a commercial basis. It will also be teaching participants useful UAV applications as well such as making flight plans, managing data, setting up your camera and more.

UAVs, also known as drones, are providing numerous benefits to Indiana’s environment and economy. In the agricultural sector, they are helping farmers and agricultural professionals gather more precise data and translate it into efficient, profitable and long-term success in the areas of: crops, natural resources, and livestock. They are also providing numerous benefits to other industries as well through their ability to improve the marketing opportunities of a business, and providing analyses of structures, real estate, insurance and more.

The UAV Signature Program will be held online on the evenings of November 10th, 11th, 12th, 17th and 18th from 6:00 – 8:30pm EST. The cost of the program is $200 per person. Registration for the program is required and can be done online with the following link: https://www.cvent.com/d/37qdbn To learn more about UAV’s, their uses, and legal requirements, please visit the website: https://extension.purdue.edu/uav/ For information regarding the November program, please contact Andrew Westfall of the Purdue Extension Office of White County at: 219-984-5115 or awestfal@purdue.edu
