Introduction to drones

Differents types of fixed-wing and rotary-wing drones

OBJECTIVE :

This course will enable those beginning to work in the field of unmanned aircraft to quickly gain a broad knowledge of civilian and military uses, payload types, control stations and the principles of communication.

COURSE DURATION AND TIMETABLE :

The course lasts 1 day (7 hours).

GENERAL APPROACH :

This course is for those wishing to have an overview of the different types of drones (both fixed- and rotary-wing) and the related technologies.

It offers an easy way to understand the different areas addressed.

The lectures are very demonstration-focused.

The course outlines the different types of military drone (among others) and so can complement course AED 026 on Combat Aviation.

People wishing to deepen their knowledge in this field will be able to take it with course:

AED 018: Drone systems

PREREQUISITE :

Course level: Basic

This course is intended for all types of employees interested in drones: engineers, technicians, salespeople, buyers, management inspectors and administrative staff. No prior training required in the field.

COURSE DIRECTOR(S) :
