2019 SUMMER CAMPS

RooFly Drone Camp is a 3 day camp lets 9-12th graders get behind the controls of an unmanned aircraft to explore the fast-evolving world of drone technology. Learn the proper flight mechanics of hazard avoidance, camera-based flight ops, and the practical application of unmanned aircrafts with simulated industrial inspections.
