FlightSafety International reached an agreement to deliver Unmanned Aircraft Systems practical flight training in conjunction with Praxis Aerospace Concepts Inc. The training UAS training will initially be offered in the Las Vegas area and at several FlightSafety Learning Centers in the United States.

Praxis Aerospace holds facilities in Henderson and Searchlight, Nevada. It provides commercial training and services for multi-modal (ground-air-sea-industrial) response robotics and is a Level 3 Training Provider for AUVSI’s Trusted Operator Program.

“Our Unmanned Systems Training program developed in conjunction with Praxis will help commercial operators achieve the highest levels of safety and proficiency,” said Ray Johns, co-CEO, president, government and manufacturing, FlightSafety. “As a global leader in aviation training with more than six decades of experience, FlightSafety has the capability to develop and deliver the most comprehensive UAS training available. We appreciate and value the expertise Jonathan Daniels and his team at Praxis bring to this important new program.”


FlightSafety and Praxis explains their AUVSI TOP compliant courses are built to ASTM International UAS standards, as well as those of several other national aviation authorities throughout the world. FlightSafety also offers several eLearning courses including a 107 Written Test Preparation course, Resource Management for UAS Operations, Fatigue Management for UAS Operations, Safety Management System (SMS) for UAS Operations and a newly specialized Flight Risk Assessment Tool available through the FlightBag app.  

These eLearning courses form what FlightSafety describes as the first of its UAS Library of eLearning. FlightSafety’s Unmanned Systems Training division is offering Advanced Remote Pilot Series practical training courses. This series of courses features what the company describes as a set of training elements designed to propel drone pilots into the commercial sector with the skills and tools to operate as a commercial remote pilot effectively.
