Cherokee Nation Strategic Programs (CNSP) has selected FlightSafety International (FSI) to provide unmanned systems training. CNSP is a member of the University of Alaska-Fairbanks FAA UAS integration pilot program (IPP). FSI provides UAS training in the Las Vegas area and at several other training centers in the U.S.

Courses are built to the FAA's UAS standards and to those of other aviation regulatory authorities around the world. CNSP curriculum begins with eLearning Part 107 test preparation and eLearning UAS essentials library, followed by theoretical and practical UAS instructor-led training. FSI’s Part 107 test preparation course meets certification Level 1 requirements, while the instructor-led courses satisfy Levels 2 and 3 certification requirements. FAA Wings credits also are available via the IPP.

In addition to Part 107 written test preparation, FSI eLearning UAS courses include resource management, fatigue management, and safety management systems for UAS operations, as well as a free flight risk assessment tool (FRAT) via Apple’s iTunes app.
