Learn to fly a tiny, camera-equipped drone using First Person View (FPV) technology in a special workshop at the Hiller Aviation Museum!

Nano Drone Workshop ($199 – $179 Members)

Micro-scale drone racing is the fastest, easiest way to become a drone sports pilot.  This special 2.5 hour program presented by Aerial Sports League and the Hiller Aviation Museum features a tiny but powerful quad-rotor helicopter with integrated camera and FPV googles, a screen system that provides a drone’s eye view of flight to the pilot at the controls.  Each program features:

  • Introduction to drone operations
  • Nano drone systems and flight preparation
  • Flight training using drone flight simulators
  • Progressive flight training in the Museum’s Drone Plex
  • Complete FPV nano drone flight system, including aircraft, camera, radio, goggles and more

Students learn the basic by building their own micro-drone from scratch, with hands-on help and guidance from ASL’s professional pilot instructors.  Students then learn to fly, starting with basic hover-and-land skills to more advanced racing techniques.

Registration includes admission for the participant (minimum age 10) and one guest.  Pilots ages 10-14 must be accompanied by an adult.   All equipment needed to operate the nano drone including, battery and charging equipment, is included.
