Drone Flight Training

Why should I take 3rd Rock Air's Drone Flight School

Seeing how drones are a daily part of life, news, sports, first responders, construction, etc., you most likely know someone who owns a drone or your company is using drones in projects or filling job positions with people who have drone experience. The futuristic predictors, have been blind-sided by the number of drone owners and businesses using drone technology than could have ever been anticipated. Wow! Old school thinking, right?

No one can predict innovation in a market such as this. With today's technology in mobile devices, 3D printing, cinematography and so on, the sky is no longer the limit. Take social media for example, who would have been able to accurately predict this? Today, you either get with the program or find yourself settled with obsolete knowledge and skill sets.

After you've spent some time learning the basic controls and how to fly a UAV in completely manual mode, you will move on to one of our school's DJI Air 2S's. With the the Air 2S, you will be able to experience a number of different pilot assist modes, helping you fly and control the aircraft.

Then we'll give you some time on our Mavic 3 and demonstrate the capabilities of our awesome Inspire 2 professional drone.

 

And if you're a solo filmmaker or YouTuber, you'll want to see and hear about our Skydio 2, a totally autonomous Drone

And if you're interested in thermography for inspecting structures, power lines, farms and more, we have the Parrot Anafi Thermal. It comes equipped with a 4K camera as well as a Flir thermal camera.
