Cincinnati program wants you to fly drones safely

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The FAA estimated that up to 1 million drones would enter our national airspace by the end of 2015.

The questions is, are those drones being operated safely and responsibly?

Flamingo Air, based out of historic Lunken Airport, recently launched one of its newest training divisions, "Worker Bee Drones."

The program - the first of its kind in Ohio - is designed for all enthusiasts of this industry, from the hobbyist to the advanced operator who's looking for career opportunities.

The Worker Bee Drone Training Program is a 16 hour curriculum covered in a two day span.

It meets drone certification and operation standards set by the Federal Aviation Administration for the drone industry.

The company goal is to educate and train drone operators on how to safely and responsibly operate in the National Airspace System (NAS), as well as expose local communities on how drones are being utilized.

Whether you are a beginner just starting off or an advanced operator looking to become an entrepreneur, this course maybe for you.
