ALC Aviation Drones Class Takes a Field Trip to Zipline

Submitted by shelley.heaton on

We're thrilled to announce that our two Intermediate Drone classes had the fantastic opportunity to take a field trip to Zipline. This company is at the forefront of technology, using drones for package delivery in Utah in partnership with Intermountain Healthcare. They deliver prescriptions right to a person's backyard!

Our students were given a firsthand experience of the process of launching and recovering the drones, also known as 'zips'. They also learned about the precautions and measures taken to ensure these drones do not interfere with other aircraft. This was a wonderful opportunity for our students to see how the theoretical knowledge they gain in the classroom can be applied in the real world. The excitement on their faces was priceless!
