Explore the world of autonomous flight and aerospace design in Drone Ranger!

The Hiller Aviation Museum’s Drone Plex flight center provides an unparalleled opportunity for students to learn to fly small, autonomous robotic safely in a netted enclosure.  Throughout the week, students use realistic simulation and the flight of real drones to develop important flying skills.  Hand-flown, autonomous and first-person view drones are all included as pilots develop their skills and put them to the test.  Campers also complete a series of robotics-related activities that provide a fuller view of the role of robots and drones in modern society.

  • Daily Drone Missions
    • Boilerplate drone construction
    • First person view drones
    • Programmable, autonomous drones
    • Traditional hand-flown drone flight
  • Surface Robotics and Robot Programming
  • Introductory and Advanced Flight Simulation
  • Magnetism and Simple machines
  • Take-home RC quadcopters
  • And Much More!
