Course description:

These courses are to prepare CAP members to work towards becoming operational with Mini-UAVs.  CAP has 8 wings, one in each region, that are beta testing mini-UAV kits developed in conjunction with a DHS Science and Technology program to be able to support imagery collection by CAP ground teams using these units. CAP personnel will have to meet the FAA Part 107 requirements to operate the units on missions, and CAP will only support emergency missions (SAR and DR) with these units so that personnel are not put at additional risk by being too close to high risk activities like counterdrug and drug interdiction law enforcement support missions.
