    Learn to Fly a Drone with UAV Coach’s In-Person Drone Training Class

    This month, UAV Coach announced their new in-person drone flight training classes, which are available across the Southeast United States. UAV Coach created the 90-minute, in-person training class for drone pilots to gain hands-on flight time with an instructor, practice with intelligent flight modes, and knowledge about what to do before, during and after a flight mission to stay compliant and safe.

    A private, one-on-one drone flight training class with a UAV Coach instructor takes place at the Parthenon in Centennial Park, Nashville, Tennessee.

    In-Person Drone Training Class

    During UAV Coach’s in-person drone flight training class, students can expect to:

    Meet with an expert and friendly instructor in a convenient outdoor location, like a park or athletic field
    Learn on a popular DJI drone model that will be provided by the instructor
    Have 30-45 minutes of hands-on flying time to master orientation, basic flight maneuvers, and more advanced flight skills
    Walk through the DJI Go 4 app so that you understand the settings and indicators
    Learn how to handle obstacles such as lost GPS, low battery charge or emergencies
    Practice flying under various intelligent flight modes
    Capture photo and video at your flight location
    Understand best practices of being a safe drone pilot
    Ask questions about regulations, software, flight operations management, checklists and more

    Students do not need to have their own drone to take the course. UAV Coach’s highly vetted team of instructors provide a DJI Mavic, Phantom, or Inspire drone for the class.

    As a UAV Coach instructor, I enjoy watching the students pick up and improve their flight skills and knowledge. Students will gain confidence and improved skills in just one session, and it’s a great deal of fun.

    — Glen Sherwin, UAV Coach Instructor

    Locations

    UAV Coach debuted the class throughout the Southeast in select cities across eight states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. View specific locations on our class locations map.

    The UAV Coach team expects to add more locations later this year throughout the U.S. If classes haven’t been added in your location yet, check out our online drone training resources.

    The instructor will meet the student(s) for a private or group lesson in a convenient outdoor location, like a park or athletic field. All UAV Coach instructors are interviewed and subject to background checks. Additionally, all instructors have drone pilot experience in industries such as real estate, construction, and public safety. With years of experience in the field and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Part 107 certification, the UAV Coach drone pilot instructors are able to confidently answer student questions about regulations, software, flight operations, and more.

    We’re proud of the impressive team of instructors we’ve brought on board. They’re passionate about the industry and excited to share their knowledge with students.

    — Lana Axelrod, UAV Coach Chief Operating Officer

    Value

    The cost of the class is $199, which includes 90 minutes with a FAA Certified Part 107 pilot, drone equipment for the class, 30-45 minutes of flight time, and regulatory compliance and safety training.

    This class is recommended for a variety of skill levels. You’ll benefit from UAV Coach’s in-person flight training course as a newcomer to the drone industry just getting into flying, an experienced drone pilot who wants to gain flight confidence and knowledge, or as a commercial drone pilot who wants to professionalize his or her operations. This is due to the fact that the instructor tailors each class to the student’s skill level and goals.

    book in person drone training

    After booking your flight class, we’ll ask you some questions to help us better understand your goals. Then, we use your answers to personalize the class, which can cover topics like flight operations management, rules and regulations, DJI flight modes, and intelligent / advanced programming.

    Other Drone Training Resources

    There are additional, online resources for drone pilots learning how to fly or working towards their FAA Part 107 certification.

    An excellent resource for novice drone pilots is our Drone Flying Guide — a beginner’s guide to multirotor systems & flight proficiency. This online guide covers drone flying lessons on quadcopter controls, pre-flight checklists, drone flying techniques, and more.

    Commercial pilots and hobbyists working toward their FAA Part 107 Certification will benefit from another online resource, Drone Pilot Ground School (DPGS) — an online test prep course for commercial drone pilots looking to pass the FAA Aeronautical Knowledge Test for a Remote Pilot Certificate. Students who take the DPGS prep course go on to pass the Aeronautical Knowledge Test with a 99% pass rate.

  • Corning anuncia Gorilla Glass 6 y la promesa de que nuestro smartphone sobrevivirá hasta 15 caídas

    Corning anuncia Gorilla Glass 6 y la promesa de que nuestro smartphone sobrevivirá hasta 15 caídas

    Corning Gorilla Glass 6

    Corning acaba de anunciar durante un evento en Estados Unidos la nueva versión de exitoso cristal para pantallas de smartphones, y alguno que otro dispositivo: Gorilla Glass 6. Y como ya se habrán imaginado, llega bajo una nueva composición que tiene como objetivo proteger nuestro smartphone ante caídas, golpes y arañazos.

    Según Corning, Gorilla Glass 6 es “hasta dos veces más resistente” que la generación anterior, además de que ahora aumenta su grado de protección al garantizarnos que soportará hasta 15 caídas a máximo un metro de altura, sin importar si es sobre superficies duras, planas o rugosas.

    “No sólo se trata de resistencia, también del diseño”

    Según la compañía, a día de hoy Gorilla Glass 5 se encuentra en más de 85% de los smartphones y está presente en dispositivos como el Samsung Galaxy S9, LG G7 ThinQ y Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium. Y según explican, con esta nueva generación buscan no sólo aumentar el nivel de protección, sino también mejorar el diseño al hacerlo más delgado, ligero y “más rígido, pero flexible”.

    Para lograr esto, Corning menciona que usaron un nuevo proceso químico para crear una composición de vidrio nueva y fortalecida, es decir, aseguran que se trata de un nuevo material, que en sus pruebas de laboratorio fue capaz de soportar hasta 15 caídas desde un metro sobre superficies rugosas, lo que “mejora en hasta dos veces lo conseguido con Gorilla Glass 5”.

    Gorilla Glass 6

    Según los estudios de la misma Corning, los usuarios sufren en promedio hasta siete caídas de sus smartphones durante un año, y más del 50% de estas caídas ocurren desde menos de un metro de altura. En sus investigaciones, el 62% prefiere que su smartphone sea resistente a caídas, mientras que el resto prefiere que sea más resistente a arañazos.

    Corning menciona que Gorilla Glass 6 ya está siendo probado por diversas marcas y se espera que hacia finales de año salgan a la venta los primeros dispositivos con este nuevo cristal.
