Chapman Aerospace has been authorized by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to operate unmanned aircraft systems (drones) at or under 200 feet, which enables the drone company to offer a Drone Pilot Training School at its California base.
Now FAA-certified pilots will teach students to become professional FAA-certified drone pilots who know how to fly safely and legally in order to take advantage of turnkey opportunities in an emerging industry.
“There is a shortage of qualified UAS/drone pilots in the United States and licensed pilots are in great demand. In the future, drone pilots will have exciting and lucrative careers since licensed drone pilots come at a premium,” said President Justin Chapman.
In addition to the Drone Pilot Training School, Chapman Aerospace provides drone teams including pilots, camera operators and complete crews for movies and other projects that require aerial filming, photography, surveys, 3D modeling and/or automated services. The school will also train pilots and provide drones that will provide wind turbine inspections, solar farm inspections, gas and oil inspections and agriculture inspections.
“Our company has the best qualified drone and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) operators in the United States…One of our current projects is shooting the 115th US Open at the Chambers Bay Golf Course,” he revealed.
Chapman Aerospace also sells FAA-approved drones that have been tested by the company in real world situations to reduce the potential for damage or unsafe operation situations.
Chapman Aerospace’s Founder and President Justin Chapman has been working with drones and unmanned aerial systems (UAS) for 18 years, since he was 12 years.
