Unmanned Aircraft Systems Flight and Operations

As the unmanned aircraft systems, more commonly known as drones, industry continues to break new ground, Kansas State Polytechnic is at the forefront of this revolution. We understand the importance of providing students with research opportunities, cutting edge technology and equipment, and an exclusive education. That’s why we built one of the largest enclosed UAS flight facilities in the nation and were awarded the country’s first approval to provide commercial flight training.

To become a proficient, responsible and highly sought after drone pilot, your flight training cannot occur online or come solely from a textbook. In our UAS program, students log flight hours by piloting a diverse fleet of unmanned aircraft through our structured multirotor and fixed-wing training courses. After completion, students act as instructors in entry-level flight classes.

Make your mark on the drone industry.
