How to safely ride a solarwinds SolarWinds drone for the first time
A training course for pilots in Colorado has given drone pilots the first-hand experience of using the solarwind’s unique power to capture photos, video and sound.
According to Mashable, a group of solarwind pilots from the University of Colorado Boulder and the Colorado College of Technology (CCT) set up their first class last week.
It’s designed to give them the “skills, knowledge, and equipment” to safely fly the solar wind for the foreseeable future.
The instructors are using the drone to fly in solarwind zones and teach them how to control it safely.
The class is open to both new and experienced pilots, who can opt to take a self-paced class that teaches them the basics of controlling a solar wind and how to navigate the airspace around them.
“We’re trying to bring the knowledge of what we have learned from the field of robotics to the pilot,” CCT Director of Operations Jason Lander told Mashable.
“It’s a very different thing from controlling a robotic arm, but the skill and experience is there.”
“If you’re a newbie to the sport, we would recommend that you come with a partner, but you’ll learn from one another,” he added.
“If you want to make a big leap in your career, I would definitely recommend coming with a group.”
Mashable reports that the first class will take place at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, September 15, in the CCT’s solarwind training facility.
