Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) Drone Application

Get the preparation you need to get your FAA drone certification and be ready to carry out safe, legal and effective aerial flight operations.

The mission of the Unmanned Aerial System (UAS)-Drone Applications Certificate is to prepare students to become Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified small Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) Remote Drone Pilots, who are trained to conduct safe, legal, and effective aerial flight operations within the National Airspace System. The core courses supporting this certificate are designed to instruct Remote Drone Pilots in how to fly mission driven and incident-free sorties, and effectively capture/record and post-process aerial imagery.

This course curriculum does not require the student to have a small UAS-Drone. FAA Requirements for becoming a certified Drone Pilot are listed // Students already in possession of a valid FAA Drone Remote Pilot Certification, may substitute the UAS107 course for another Park University 3cr course with permission from the Criminal Justice Department Chair or the Criminal Justice Program Coordinator.

This course curriculum requires the student to have access to, or own, a photo and video-recording enabled small UAS-Drone. Minimum drone specifications for this course, as well as various suitable drone models, are listed at //
