Training veterans for the jobs of tomorrow in the civilian drone industry
53% of US military veterans face a period of unemployment within 15 months of separation. Drones & Good Academy therefore provides vocational training to those who are willing to transition to a civilian career in the drone industry. Trainees learn the fundamentals about UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), their regulatory framework, the flight dynamics, and the software and technical features, to name a few. They also follow field-based training to understand safety and weather issues, and experience different missions with companies from various sectors. They eventually learn advanced techniques and maintenance as well as basics about post-flight data processing.
Following the training, Drones & Good Academy provides its trainees with hands-on opportunities in real commercial environments, helping veterans to start new careers in the technology industry.
