sUAS technology, also known as Drone Technology, is a rapidly growing STEM area. In addition to learning about the science of flight and flight safety regulations, cadets can apply for scholarships in order to pay for FAA Commercial Drone Pilot certification. Commercial drone pilots can earn money leveraging their certification in such areas as surveying, mapping, inspection work, or aerial cinematography.
