Drone operation is both a hot topic and fast growing area of professionalization, both locally and nation-wide.  With an immense number of industry applications – including: engineering, construction, emergency response, transportation, travel, real estate, and sports - the potential for professional applications are broad.  But there is a learning curve, and not only in the area of hands-on experience.  Any commercial drone operation is regulated by the Federal Aviation Administration, just like the piloting of private and commercial aircraft.  Join us during your lunch break, and learn about the top 10 things you need to know about flying one.

This FREE UMass Transportation Center (UMTC) webinar is designed for new UAS (drone) operators as well as drone operators with some experience as pilots, but with limited background in aviation.
