The love of flying and the pride of knowing that you kept travelers safe is what drives aviation maintenance technicians, pilots, navigators, UAS operators, designers, and more. Aviation is an ever-changing and high-demand career with new technologies being introduced frequently, commercial air travel increasing, and the use of small UAS vehicles (drones) being used in many sectors. Drones are tools that can be used across many industries but to effectively use them and produce useable data, knowledge in remote sensing, drone piloting and a knowledge of the industry you are supporting is a must. Agriculture, law enforcement, firefighting or conservation are a few examples of industries that can benefit from the addition of drone technology.
