The Unmanned Safety Institute (USI) has formed a partnership with Helicopter Association International (HAI) to provide unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) training to HAI members worldwide. HAI members will receive a 15 percent discount on USI courses and certifications when accessed through HAI’s online academy portal.

These materials include USI’s full suite of training and industry certifications, including the sUAS safety ground school, UAS flight safety endorsement, visual line-of-sight (VLOS) system operations, FAA remote pilot practice exam, and Part 107 study and field guide. Members also will be able to purchase licensing agreements for corporate internal training programs including the VLOS flight training curriculum and sUAS safety certification curriculum.

“The unmanned flight industry has huge potential, and businesses and individuals within the helicopter industry are serving as the vanguard by incorporating the UAS technology into their operations,” said HAI president Matt Zuccaro. “There are companies that are using unmanned aircraft for surveying pipelines and powerlines, for aerial photography and mapping, and even for conducting cargo missions. These USI courses offer these and other HAI members the opportunity and flexibility to advance their careers and businesses.” USI has more than 150 instructors and 7,000 customers worldwide.
