Explore the world of autonomous flight and robotics in a special one-day Aviation Camp program!

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 day, students use realistic simulation and the flight of real drones to develop important flying skills.  Hand-flown, autonomous and first-person view drones are included as pilots develop their skills and put them to the test.  Campers also complete a flight simulation mission, work with land-based robots and more to discover the science behind autonomous flight.



Drone Ranger Camp Includes:

  • First-Person View (FPV) drone flight
  • Drone remote operation
  • Drone coding and autonomous flight
  • Surface robotics and robot programming
  • Introductory flight simulation
  • Take-home RC quadcopter
