   • Flight Training - field based practical flight training and assessment, an additional three days.

  Course content includes the following modules:

• Air Law 

• UAS Principals of Flight

• UAS Components

• Airspace Classification & Aviation Charts

• Human Factors

• UAS Flight Safety 

• Navigation and GPS

• Meteorology 

• Operations Procedures & Documentation   

• Operations Manual Overview 

• Pre-Flight Planning Documentation

• Commercial factors

• Airmanship
   *Classes are limited to a maximum of 8 participants, and students will pair up at the start of each course to practice the roles of pilot and observer. 

 Military/Special Forces Training:

As part of Adaptive Aero Technologies, LLC complete package of UAS solutions, we provide specialist training for Public Sector clients, including military and law enforcement users. We can help by delivering custom training classes that not only teach the basics of UAS operation, but are specifically tailored to mission objectives.
These can include:

• Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance Missions (ISR) 

• Border patrol 

• Anti-piracy

• Counter-insurgency

• Search-and-Rescue (SAR) 

• Fixed base security 


 All courses follow a highly structured training and assessment process, documented in our course training plan. This plan documents the training objectives and incorporates instructional specifications to ensure that key points are covered and that the enabling objectives are met for each lesson.  

The courses contain both formative and Summative Assessment elements. 

Formative testing helps both student and instructor recognise lapses in learning so that corrective action can be initiated, and also helps to improve retention where learning has occurred. It also enables instructors to quickly identify those students who require remedial training. The course instructors will conduct Formative testing after each period of instruction as confirmation and at periods during the course as progress assessments. 


The purpose of Summative Assessment is to confirm the competence of the student in the theoretical knowledge and practical skills as stated in relevant Training Objectives. The written summative assessments will be carried out at the most appropriate time in the course to confirm the students' ability to satisfy the requirements of the Training Objectives.  Summative assessments examine all Training Objectives on a pass/fail basis with students required to pass all assessments. 

Typically students must achieve 100% in each safety related assessment, 70% in each theory assessment, and must pass each summative practical assessment in order to pass the course. 

In some cases, Adaptive Aero Tech will customize and deliver substitute and/or optionally manned UAS platforms as part of the training delivery program. These substitute systems accurately replicate the experience of flying operational assets, enabling students to learn quickly and cost-effectively without putting high value equipment at risk. This is particularly useful for Launch & Recovery (LRE) training, enabling students to practise with systems specifically designed to support multiple LRE cycles per hour with minimum downtime.
