Manned and Unmanned Aviation Studies at UMA delivers a program of study for students who aspire to be pilots. Remotely piloted aircraft students also learn how to design, build, and maintain both fixed wing and quadcopter aircraft. They design systems with video and telemetry equipment and learn how to fly commercial missions

With the growing demand for commercial manned and unmanned pilots, the future for graduates of UMA’s Aviation programs soars to new heights.
