Avion Unmanned Launches Online UAS Training Portal

Posted on Friday 3rd February 2017 | UAS Training

The Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Training Team at Avion Unmanned in Huntsville, Alabama launched its Online UAS Training Portal that’s designed to prepare groups and individuals in law enforcement and the commercial sector for the challenges of operating of UAS (drones) in the National Airspace System (NAS). The UAS training portal offers self-paced remote training that encompasses recently released Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) UAS regulations.

Avion Unmanned is the UAS division of Avion Solutions, Inc. The portal uses the cloud-based TalentLMS (Learning Management System) in collaboration with seasoned aviation instructors. Training includes courses in aircraft systems, aerodynamics, flight-control software, weather, airspace, etc. from the Part 107 Remote Pilot Exam. Based on the 5-day in-person training course, the Online UAS Training Portal allows students to experience the same proven training criteria used to educate law enforcement and public agencies.

Avion Unmanned says it is leading the push for safety standards and quality training to support the long-term growth and adoption of drones by modern industry. "The only way to be effective with a tool is to be properly trained how to use it," says Taylor Abington, Avion's UAS Program Manager. "By enrolling in Avion's online UAS training, you are sure to be trained to operate your UAS legally, effectively, and most importantly, safely."

Avion Unmanned is looking to customize the standard training packages to address specific needs and organizations such as aerial photography for construction, mapping and photogrammetry, specific aircraft platforms, and programs that will only be available to police and emergency response units.
