Aerodynamics for UAS Operations (eLearning)

Aerodynamics impacts nearly all aspects of drone operations, affecting both the operation of the drone itself and flight crew performance. This Aerodynamics for UAS Operations course familiarizes your flight crew with the necessary knowledge to properly account for the relationships between Dynamic Forces in your drone operation. Learn how to identify the impact of weather on the Aerodynamic Forces and how to interpret this data to make educated determinations for safe UAS operations.

Specifically, by the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Define the relationship between aerodynamic forces
  • Apply aerodynamic forces to different UAS platforms
  • Identify impact of weather on the aerodynamic forces
  • Apply aerodynamic forces in movement
  • Identify procedures in normal and abnormal situations
