UAS Training

AeroVironment provides advanced training courses for a wide range of UAS applications and tactical situations. We train each student to develop a comprehensive understanding of the selected UAS solution, including safety, operational proficiency, aircraft maintenance and air space management. Our world-class instructors have trained thousands of military and law enforcement personnel how to fully exploit the capabilities of our UAS system to accomplish their mission objectives. At AeroVironment we know that it’s more than just a small plane that leads to mission success.

"The small, hand-launched system was considered to be invaluable to lower-level commanders due to its ability to be launched quickly when theater- and high-level assets were not available."
Marine Corps Center For Lessons Learned


"In both Iraq and Afghanistan, my Marines prefer not to go outside the wire [the base perimeter] without first sending up a Raven or a Wasp to scan the area and see what's going on. We call the Raven and Wasp our Airborne Flying Binoculars and Guardian Angel."
