Duke University has opened a new research and training facility for the use of unmanned aircraft systems — commonly referred to as drones — in marine science and conservation. This new facility offers courses to train students and working professionals on how to use unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in coastal research and conservation. Pictured below is the AMA University Model Aviation Student Club (UMASC), Blue Devil Drones, from Duke University.
The AMA’s UMASC program provides several benefits for university students. Some of the benefits include a discounted AMA membership, full insurance benefits, digital subscription to Model Aviation magazine, and scholarship opportunities.
