One of the main initiatives of Central Colorado UAS (CCUAS) is to promote the technology and industry in education arenas.
We are pleased to announce our second grant to the Buena Vista High School drone program! On April 1, 2022, the leadership team visited the class, taught by Adam Fuller, to get an idea of their experiences and to present a $2,000 grant to help them acquire aircraft and equipment. This was a matching grant which they used to purchase a DJI Phantom 4 for growing interest in photogrammetry and a DJI FPV for fun!
CCUAS was instrumental in helping Mr. Fuller and the school district adopt the Unmanned Safety Institute (USI) curriculum. This curriculum is safety focused and provides students with industry-recognized safety certificates along with knowledge to achieve the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Remote Pilot certificate.
