UAS Flight Training

Ground up UAS training can be difficult to maintain as an inhouse service due to the necessary overhead cost and variable demand for a particular unmanned system. Volatus Group has created the Volatus Technical Education Center (VTEC) with sole goal of supplying a regularly scheduled training, minimizing expenses and creating accessible educational opportunities for everyone wanting to get into the UAS industry.

This model provides companies the opportunity to reduce the expense incurred by base level training allowing them to spend more time on instructing the specific knowledge points crucial to operating a specific aircraft.

When you use VTEC for your UAS operator training you know you are getting a quality individual with a fundamental understanding of; aviation principals, a working knowledge of a given autopilot system and an operational understanding of how to safely use and operate UAS in a verity of environments and airspace. After a student graduates the VTEC UAS operators course, they are fully prepared to receive platform / aircraft specific training and start working as a UAS operator.

Volatus Group is strategically partnered with industry employers who are looking to hire people directly out of the UAS operator training program and immediately go to locations all over the world preforming various UAS operations

All courses currently offered are available to individuals and companies. Financing is available as well as customizable corporate training programs upon request.
