Intended for experienced pilots (12 flights or more) that are generally comfortable with most aspects of UAV operation, the Manager Track is the next step in your successful UAV program. More in-depth flight training, media management, basic thermal imaging, and updates on the FAA's regulatory environment will segue into a collaborative forum where facilities management pilots from across the country can work together to share their experiences. This four day conference will be split between a classroom setting and hands on flying at a variety of locations and environments.
