As the somber 20th anniversary of the deadly 9/11 attacks in New York approaches, America’s top drone company is honoring courageous first responders with training to keep them safe in the line of duty. Specifically, Aquiline Drones (AD), a commercial drone manufacturing and cloud technology company in Connecticut, is offering free tuition for the company’s Flight to the Future (F2F) drone pilot training program to all police officers and firefighters from now until the end of the year. Several firefighter and police departments have already enrolled in the program valued at $1,299 per participant.
“We originally created Flight to the Future as a way to provide new high-tech skills in a burgeoning industry to unemployed workers during the pandemic to fulfill everyday services such as asset inspection, videography, smart farming and land surveying and mapping,” said Barry Alexander, Founder and CEO of Aquiline Drones. “But using drones to help better society and save human lives was the impetus in creating our company and we’re excited to do our part in arming those in the line of duty with crucial training to keep them safe and secure.”
The interactive online course teaches police and fire professionals how to safely and effectively utilize drone technology in their daily missions. The educational content is available on-demand at any time, so participants can take the course at their own convenience. Besides earning their FAA Part 107 commercial drone pilot certification, F2F program participants will also learn about cloud computing, AI, the Internet of Things (IoT) and other technologies transforming the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) industry.
