Flying Drones for Recreational Use


with Larry Harman

Calendar Jul 8, 2023 at 9:30 am

“Flying Drones for Fun” has taken on new meaning as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has carved out special roles for the recreational users of small drones, certified commercial drone pilots, and supported the collection and analysis of aerial imagery. The US Department of Transportation has also encouraged community colleges to play a supportive role in training drone pilots to understand the significant differences under Federal law in flying drones for fun and flying drones for work.

At the same time, the manufacturers of drone hardware and drone software are constantly offering new products and services with improved capabilities at lower costs.  The FAA has revised regulations operating drones over people and at night. In the Fall of 2023, a Federally mandated system will be deployed that identifies individual drones in flight and their remote pilot’s location on the ground (Remote ID).  The goal is to improve the safety of the National Air Space by deconflicting small drone operations and crewed aircraft through out the U.S.

The Center for Corporate and Professional Education (CCAPE) at the Cape Cod Community College is supporting these air safety initiatives with short, hands-on courses that:

  1. Supports the FAA rules and regulations for remote pilot knowledge.
  2. Provides an understanding of the current drone marketplace
  3. Improves basic drone flying skills.
  4. Provides an understanding of imagery collection and analysis software.

Taught by small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) noted industry expert Lawrence Harman, co-director of the GeoGraphics Laboratory at Bridgewater State University and a licensed FAA-certified Remote Pilot in Charge.

Class Format: This program is offered in person.
