Hi All, I was speaking with Alan today and he suggested I post on the forum here. I work for Prelaunch Labs and we are looking to partner with Drone Pilot Instructors on a program that involves the Epson Moverio BT-300 AR Glasses. These glasses allow the pilot to keep line of sight on the drone, while showing the flight data. If you would like more details about the program please email or call our office.

As a high school teacher, I am very excited about the May 4 Memorandum from the FAA regarding Educational Use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems. Unfortunately, my jail-house lawyer skills are lacking, so I am curious to see what others get from reading it. https://www.faa.gov/uas/regulations_policies/media/Interpretation-Educational-Use-of-UAS.pdf My take-away is: If I am a public school and The course using the UAS is not specifically a course on UAS, but uses the UAS only as a part of the curriculum. Students involved are enrolled in the class. Students or staff are not directly compensated. The instructor doesn't fly the UAS, except to avoid calamity then, : Students fly as hobbyists Staff only flies in event student loses control. (not sure how I save the UAS, if I never get to practice) The program can be compensated as long as student and staff are not. Still hazy on whether I need come type of FAA certificate or does the memorandum say I am good to go based on the memorandum? I registered my UAS as "Public Entity" instead of "hobbyist" as per advice of FAA UAS hotline. What is your take-away? PS. at some point, it might be nice to have and "education" category.
