Program Details

Phase 2: Simulation

Get ready to take flight! Use industry leading flight simulation software and fly drones in a variety of missions and environments. Develop piloting skills well beyond the basics of roll, pitch, and yaw.

Phase 3: Hands-On Flight Time

Students in the Creighton Drone Aviation program have exclusive access to work with seasoned, licensed pilots in real world scenarios.
