Unmanned Safety Institute Adds Advanced Aircrew Academy as Strategic Distribution Partner

Posted on Tuesday 14th February 2017 | Airline

The Unmanned Safety Institute (USI), a subsidiary of ARGUS International, Inc., and Advanced Aircrew Academy, a specialized aviation eLearning company, have partnered to add USI's portfolio of online training offerings on the Advanced Aircrew Academy website.

The Small UAS Safety Ground School (initial and recurrent courses), and the Safety Awareness (initial and recurrent courses) will be available on the Advanced Aircrew Academy eLearning suite.

The Small UAS Safety Ground School is a training course for individuals seeking to operate UAS as professional remote pilots. The program offers approximately 24-hours of self-paced content online and prepares the student to pass the FAA Unmanned Aircraft General (UAG) exam to obtain their Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate. 

The Small UAS Safety Awareness Course is composed of approximately 4-hours of self-paced content online and provides advanced flight safety training that is exclusively devoted to UAS operational safety. This course is ideal for individuals who hold a Part 61 Airmen Certificate, or individuals who already possess a Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate.

"At Advanced Aircrew Academy we are hearing from many of our business aviation customers that they are looking to start an unmanned aviation program for their company. We evaluated current UAS training and consulting available in the market and found the USI/ARGUS offerings to be superior," said Dan Boedigheimer, vice president of Operations at Advanced Aircrew Academy. "A partnership to be able to offer our customers UAS training in the Ascent eLearning platform delivers the best content and record keeping system available to help to integrate a UAS program into a business aviation flight department."
