This class is for people who want to learn how to safely fly a drone for farming purposes. Our instructors are experience drone operators who will take you through all the elements of controlling your drone in flight and the functionality available in many of the new drones (e.g. autonomous flight).

The class will cover drone selection with respect to agricultural applicaitons.  We cover uses such as stock and asset monitoring and management. 

Anyone who flies a drone, whether for recreational or commercial purposes, needs to fully understand and comply with the safety and legal responsibilities of drone operations.

We will give you a comprehensive understanding of your responsibilities as a drone operator, and teach you how to safely plan and fly them.  You will also see the range of agricultural opportunities there are with drone technology.
