LEO Response to Drone Complaints
Drones are in the news and some of the news includes drones causing injuries and accidents that are handled by local law enforcement. The FAA is working with local law enforcement agencies to develop policies and procedures to deal with drone complaints. The Drone Professor training explores the balance between federal law and local law enforcement in the new online course "LEO Response to Drone Complaints".
FD:E certified instructor, Tim Trott, has a strong background with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, having received one of the first 400 FAA Section 333 Exemptions, back in May of 2015. There are now several thousand such exemptions for his Southern Helicam aerial video company. Mr. Trott is also the author of a study guide for the new Part 107 Remote Pilot Certification exam, UAS Operations Study Guide on Amazon.com as well as the video training version featured here on The Drone Professor web site and at UDEMY.com. His first e-book "Droner's guide" is also selling well on Amazon.com, ranking #15 in its category.
This new course follows the 107 Study Guide training course as well as the free "Introduction To Drones" video, tracing the history of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles from the 1918 to the present.
A number of additional "drone" courses for law enforcement will be released in the coming weeks, including Mission Planning, UAS Maintenance, Safety Operations, Applications in Public Safety, Flight Instruction and filing for a COA.
All of these courses are available for on-site, live instruction.
