students work on a drone

Prepare to dive into the exciting realm of drone technology and discover how these aerial wonders are shaping our world today! In this immersive program, participants won't just hear about drones; they'll be at the forefront of operations, both virtually and in the sky.

Participants will be introduced to drone operations through classroom instruction, flight simulators, and actual flight operations. Classes will include an introduction to small Unmanned Aerial Systems, common uses, Unmanned Aircraft Systems Lab (UAS), UAS Sims, and 3-D mapping and rendering software. Participants will gain an understanding of UAS fixed-wing and multi-rotor aircraft through hands-on experience building, testing, and flying an autopilot-controlled quadcopter.

By the end of this program, you'll not only understand the ins and outs of UAS fixed wing and multi-rotor aircraft but also have the confidence to navigate the skies with your very own drone creation.

Get ready for an adventure where learning takes flight!

Summer Overnight Camps

Live on campus like Embry-Riddle students and explore career possibilities in flight, mechanical engineering, global security, or what it is like to be a NASA astronaut.

Embry-Riddle's overnight summer programs at the Daytona Beach Campus and Prescott Campus introduce the technology of today to the aviators, engineers, and astronauts of tomorrow.

Students live in on-campus dormitories — under the supervision of approved counselors — and share their initial experience of University living with other young people near their age.
