PLATFORMS

NASC instructors offer UAS flight experience and expertise with multiple UAV platforms in both civilian applications as well as military deployments. This invaluable real-world experience provides students with a unique perspective into the requisite skills needed to become qualified UAS flight personnel.

NASC most commonly utilizes the following Unmanned Aerial Vehicles during flight training:

AIRCRAFT

  • NASC TigerShark-XP™ UAS
    • Group 3 UAS
    • 21′ 9″ wingspan / 14′ 3″ long
    • 515 lbs. MTOW/ 95 lbs. payload weight
    • 12 hr. Endurance
    • Deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan
  • NASC Teros™ UAS
    • Group 4 UAS
    • 46′ wingspan
    • 20′ long
    • 1800 lbs. MTOW
    • 500 lbs. payload weight
  •  23 hr. Endurance

VTOL AIRCRAFT

  • L3/Latitude HQ Series
    • Group 2 and 3 UAS
    • 40 – 100 lbs.

Specialized sensor and payload equipment needs to be controlled by skilled personnel from remote locations to accomplish these missions and save time, money and even lives.

UAS Flight Instruction

Serving a wide range of UAS applications, our instructors have provided OEM certified training to Pilots, Mission Commanders, Payload Operators, and Technicians. Many NASC instructors have manned aircraft certificates and commercial pilot SEL and MEL with instrument ratings. All NASC instructors have a FAA Part 107 and ground test certification. UAV Courses range from basic aerodynamics and flight theory to advanced mission planning and tactical operations.

Overall, students can expect instruction based on approved military manned aviation training. In these structured courses, each lesson is preceded by a discussion of Learning Outcome Expectations. Our goal is to ensure that students “Show up for the mission ready to go” thereby minimizing their on-site learning curve.
