Greetings from the Shenandoah Valley of Northwestern Virginia.
About a year ago I saw an ad for an "in person" course in drone certification at a community college. It was a week long course but I was not able to get the time off from work approved. I never took the course, but the interest remained. My girlfriend gave me a drone for Christmas this past year and I want to learn how to fly it the right way, so I can safely pursue a fun hobby and maybe do it professionally as well, since it seems to be a growing industry.
I've been fascinated by aviation in general as long as I can remember and now I'm ready to do something about it.
