Insitu trains unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) operators, maintainers and instructors worldwide. Since 2004, Insitu instructors with extensive prior U.S. Military service have trained more than 2,000 operators and maintenance technicians. Our interactive learning environment blends traditional instruction with mission-realistic simulations, practical exercises and hands-on flight in a cost-effective training solution.
Tailoring UAS training worldwide, our self-sufficient mobile training unit provides custom training at your location without taxing your already stretched resources. Because our curriculum conforms to the sharable content object reference model (SCORM) standard, we can adjust our training modules and remove content not relevant to your configuration. We train to task, not to time — once you consistently perform a task successfully, you can move forward. Time saved is spent honing UAS operator skills. Money saved goes to your bottom line. And because we can bring this service to you, you don’t have to stop doing your job to get the training you need.
When we field new technologies or system upgrades, training immediately follows. Our mobile training unit delivers short-term training solutions so you can field new technologies fast, while operator and maintainer training units develop long-term standardized course modules. You get the agility of contractor services and the familiarity of military specification-compliant training.
Whatever your background, we have the knowledge and experience to teach you UAS standards. Insitu instructors have taught personnel from all U.S. Military branches — from a truck driver with a high school diploma to an F-18 pilot with multiple doctorate degrees. Insitu instructors have also worked in all U.S. Military branches, and they have the requisite clearances to train at your site. They have trained pilots to fly not just Insitu aircraft, but also helicopters, airplanes and all types of unmanned air vehicles.
Our instructor support package lets you stand up your own UAS training facility with a curriculum tailored to your specific needs. We offer courseware and equipment, as well as structured support so you don’t have to break new ground on your own.
Our training simulator looks, feels and acts like the real thing because it incorporates accurate sensor models in the same software used to operate the aircraft. This highly cost-effective training environment supports third-party applications with an open architecture, so we can simulate your specific mission.
To maintain currency, we offer certificate renewal.
All services are offered at Insitu’s corporate headquarters in White Salmon, Wash., or at your designated location worldwide.
