By way of the New York Post, Jim Record, an adjunct professor at Dowling College and an FAA-designated commercial-drone operator, has provided us with some very interesting drone industry statistics.
Record estimated that there are fewer than 4,000 licensed pilots for unmanned aircraft in the country and said job opportunities are fast outstripping the number of qualified operators.
Jobs include using drones strapped with cameras to photograph real estate, using infrared imaging to monitor solar farms and working with public safety to track down missing people, Record said.
Record estimated that students could make six figures in fewer than five years with a commercial license.
My two key takeaways – “job opportunities are fast outstripping the number of qualified operators” and “students could make six figures in fewer than five years.” If you’d like get ahead in this fast growing and lucrative drone industry, then enroll in drone college at learn the skills that will give you a competitive edge. At Drone Universities, we offer a complete curriculum of drone operator courses. Take the next step and enroll today – we’ve have upcoming courses scheduled in Sacramento, California (Feb 27th and Feb 28th) and San Diego, California (Mar 5/6, Mar 12 and Mar 13).
