HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — The Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Training Team at Avion Unmanned in Huntsville, Ala., announced the launch of their Online UAS Training Portal. Designed and developed to prepare groups and individuals in law enforcement and the commercial sector for the challenges they face in the operation 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. Backed by over 20 years' experience developing equipment and training for the U.S. Military, the portal utilizes 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 is eyeing customizations to the standard training packages to address specific needs and organizations such as aerial photography for construction, mapping and photogrammetry and specific aircraft platforms.
