With unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) becoming more popular, the FAA has granted Auburn University approval to operate a new UAS Flight School as part of its Aviation Center. Auburn hopes to launch it’s program in June, and will open the non-credit classes to anyone interested, not just Auburn students. “The reaction has been overwhelming,” said Bill Hutto, director of Auburn’s Aviation Center. “We’ve gotten inquires from as far away as Oregon State.” While the curriculum is still evolving, Hutto anticipates offering courses in pipeline inspection, use in agriculture and law enforcement and more.
