The Kent Island Bay Times - - Arts & Entertainment -

STEVENSVILLE — Ch­e­sa­peake Sport Pi­lot is of­fer­ing a two­day ground school class from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Satur­day, Nov. 10, and Sun­day, Nov. 11, at Bay Bridge Air­port. The class will cover all of the knowl­edge a drone op­er­a­tor needs to know to both fly safely and legally in the na­tional airspace sys­tem and pass the re­mote air­craft op­er­a­tor’s exam.

“While the re­mote air­craft op­er­a­tors exam and cer­tifi­cate are pri­mar­ily re­quired for any­one wish­ing to op­er­ate their drone for busi­ness, this class is de­signed to be a great help to the hob­by­ist as well as the pro­fes­sional,” said Chief Flight In­struc­tor He­len Woods.

“Any­one who takes this class will learn about the na­tional airspace sys­tem and the rules for safely and legally op­er­at­ing drones in the United States. Hob­by­ists who take this class and then pass their re­mote air­craft op­er­a­tor’s exam will also earn ex­panded priv­i­leges and be able to use their drones for things that might make them few dol­lars, like pho­tograph­ing some­one’s house or boat.”

This test prep class is $299. To reg­is­ter, call 410-604-1717. Gift cer­tifi­cates for the class are also avail­able. Ch­e­sa­peake Sport Pi­lot is also will­ing to bring this class to area busi­nesses and gov­ern­ment agen­cies who have mul­ti­ple em­ploy­ees they need trained.
