Printer-friendly version
Overview: 
This Unit introduces Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)for Aerial Robotics and covers operations under the Recreational/Hobbyist rules of FAA Section 336. It focuses mostly on indoor UAV operations and small/light aircraft, neither of which are regulated by the FAA. The limited use of outdoor UAVs above the FAA weight limit is also included, with the understanding that these will be used only over school property and operated under Section 336 regulations (non-commercial Recreation/Hobbyist use). After a introductory review of UAVs, UAV Equipment, Piloting, Flight Operations and Aerodynamics are covered using a resource from the Patuxent Partnership (TPP) as the Primary Instructional Material for these topics (with supporting Differentiated Instructional Material to add depth on desired topics). Coding and Photo/Video Operations are also covered with Primary Instructional Material from other sources.
