Foundations of UAS
This portion of the course will typically provide 90 total student contact hours in a lecture environment.
At the end of each chapter of the book, there are a series of questions that can be used for written assignments.
No labs are included in this curriculum package as I do not expect every school to have the same equipment available. I do encourage individual schools or educators to introduce lab components as time and equipment allows. For example, when speaking about two stroke and four stroke engines, if an engine is available walk your students through the power cycle of that engine. Partially disassemble the engine to show the inner workings, etc.

Zack, this is very good information for the UAS general program – particularly for fixed wing remote aircraft. Although we don’t have such aircraft in our fleet (yet) I now know where to look to learn some of the fundamentals.
