Crop Copter Develops First Flight Initiative to Excel In UAV Education, Training

Crop Copter has launched the First Flight Initiative to help growers interested in learning more about unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). This resource center includes training videos, helpful tips, support, and repair offerings and links to blogs in the UAV industry.

“Just because technology is new, it doesn’t mean there needs to be a huge learning curve to understand it,” says Matt Barnard, Crop Copter owner and founder, and farmer in central Illinois. “There are too many incidents of companies and people taking advantage of misinformation. We want to help growers evaluate UAV needs for their own operations, show them how to incorporate the technology and help set proper expectations. Regardless of whether growers buy from Crop Copter or somewhere else, we want them to be better-informed buyers and have realistic expectations of what they’re purchasing.”

Crop Copter has partnered with Parkland College in Champaign, Illinois, to help make the launch of First Flight Initiative as smooth as possible. They are offering a two-day training class to help people interested in UAVs obtain their Part 107.
