Have you ever wanted to fly or see the world from a bird’s eye view? The truth is we can’t all be Superman, but just because we can’t physically whisk up into the air whenever we want doesn’t mean we can’t zoom in the sky somehow. That’s where drones come in. They give us a chance to be closer to the clouds and gain a different perspective through advanced technology. Head to the Aerospace Museum (3200 Freedom Park Drive, McLellan) and learn the ups and downs of flying a drone at their Remote Pilot Test Prep Seminar Series course. Learn to glide in the air when the class meets over the course of three Saturdays starting February 29, continuing March 7 and ending March 14. Each class will start at 10:30 a.m. and run until 12:30 p.m. However, the Simulator Lab, where you will pilot your own simulated adventure, will be from 12:30–1 p.m. Students will obtain the knowledge required to pass the FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot Test, an exam that when passed will certify you as an official drone pilot. The class fee is $150, and course materials are included in the module. The Aerospace Museum has always been devoted to inspiring minds to dream and search for revelations in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) through active participation. So come and discover what inspires you about flight through taking the Remote Pilot Test Prep Seminar Series. For more information, visit Store.aerospaceca.org.
