NCATT (National Center for Aerospace & Transportation Technologies) conducted UAV certification testing at the Aircraft Electronics Association’s Central Regional Meeting. As a result six bachelor’s degree students of the K-State Salina University received unmanned aircraft systems maintenance certifications.
The university was amongst the first in the country to offer bachelor’s degrees in UAV systems and being awarded the NCATT certifications serves as a mark of success of the program. Only 22 other UAV systems maintenance certifications were issued prior to the meeting at which the testing was conducted.
Having proper unmanned aerial vehicle systems education institutions is a key element to the integration of UAVs into our daily lives and universities like this should only be endorsed.
