The Unmanned Aircraft Systems course utilizes the Unmanned Safety Institute curriculum for the laws, regulation, safety procedures, weather, and piloting skills required to obtain a commercial remote pilot certificate. The course is a double block course at Brewer High School, so the students can complete it as well as have many hours of actual flight time with a UAS. Students who pass the course with a 80 or higher will be recommended to take the FAA exam for commercial remote pilot certification.
