The Georgia Police Academy is offering Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Regulatory, Registration and Licensing Requirements for Public Safety Entities on March 29, 2017 at the main GPSTC campus.


This course is limited to individuals who currently have actual participation in the operation of their agency’s UAS program. Since this course is an express compliance program, it is not open to those who have already registered their UAS and/or received a Certificate of Waiver or authorization from the GAA. This is a “quick start” primer on getting an agency’s UAS program up and running lawfully.

This course will deal exclusively with what agencies need to do to get themselves up and running, with fully legitimized, fully operational and fully federally compliant and authorized UAS programs. Working within the FAA’s highly structured authorization framework, this class will take the student from zero knowledge to fully informed, as to what is allowed from a general UAS operations perspective as well as what is required specifically, for lawful operation of a public entity’s UAS.

In the course of a single day, students will cover all applicable areas of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs), open an Airman Account with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), register your UAS (if it hasn’t been done already), explore the options for properly marking the aircraft, take and complete the FAA’s Part 107 training course, discuss requirements for pilot training and licensing , apply for an agency Certificate of Authorization (COA) or Waiver, and establish “best practices” for operations, maintenance, and use of the UAS. NO UAS are to be brought to this class.



ALL Students MUST:

-bring the factory documentation (owner’s manual, performance data, operational guide, battery Information, pilot and/or aircraft logbook, etc.) for each of their agency’s Unmanned Aircraft with them.

-provide documentation of their agency’s Unmanned Aircraft’s Manufacturer, Model Name/Designation, Serial Number, and if available, the Date of Manufacture, for each UAS to be registered during the class.
