More Schools Selected for UAS Collegiate Training Initiative

The FAA’s CTI program allows educational institutions to collaborate with the FAA to help students pursue their aviation career goals. The UAS-CTI program recognizes institutions that prepare students for careers involving UAS, commonly referred to as drones.  The results of this collaborative working relationship will include a continuous dialogue with stakeholders to connect with colleges and universities with general industry, local governments, law enforcement, and regional economic development entities to address labor force needs.

Twenty-six (26) schools had been previously selected to participate in the program, including Mountain Empire Community College in Big Stone Gap, Virginia.

This month, fifteen (15) more schools were selected to participate including Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.
