Drone Ranger Camp Details
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.
