Why Drone Curriculum?

More than just teaching students how to fly drones

Our drone curriculum is about more than just teaching students how to fly drones; it’s about laying a foundation for them to participate in the world of tomorrow. According to the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), the drone industry is projected to create over 100,000 jobs by 2025 with an economic impact of over $82 billion.

Prepare them for a flourishing job market

Drones have far-reaching applications beyond what many might think, from mapping and surveying in construction, to agricultural monitoring, to disaster response and humanitarian aid. By introducing students to drones at an early stage, we are not only preparing them for a flourishing job market but also teaching them how technology can be used to solve real-world problems and make a positive impact.

The Benefits of Incorporating Drone Curriculum


Career Readiness

Students who have their FAA Remote Pilot Certificate and are familiar with drone technology will be ahead of the curve when they enter the job market. The skills they learn now will be directly applicable to a wide range of industries.


STEM Learning ​

Drone education is a fantastic way to teach Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. It integrates these fields in a hands-on, engaging way that can stimulate interest in these crucial areas.


Critical Thinking & Problem Solving ​

Learning to fly drones and understanding their applications requires strategic thinking, planning, and problem-solving, essential skills for any career and life in general.


Regulatory Understanding​

Our curriculum doesn’t only teach students how to operate drones but also instructs them on the regulations governing drone usage, readying them for their remote pilot part 107 FAA exam.

Investing in the Future

Incorporating our drone curriculum into your school’s program is not merely adding another course—it’s an investment in your students’ future. As we prepare our students for careers that may not yet exist, one thing is certain: technology, and drones in particular, will play a significant role.

By empowering students with the knowledge and hands-on experience of drone technology, we’re providing them with a toolkit for success in the burgeoning drone industry and beyond.

Hear from Keith’s Story

“It walked the students from the very beginning, trying to learn the mechanisms or the STEM requirements, allowed them to get really hands-on and it provided in such a way that it wasn’t so overwhelming, allowing the weeks to be broken down, each week there was a task or there was a subject that was discussed, one week at a time.”

- Keith Pritchett, Arab High School
