USI is pleased to partner with Global Aerospace as its exclusive SM4 Safety Partner for UAS.  As part of our commitment to the SM4 Program, USI is pleased to offer Global Aerospace clients access to four of the eight modules included USI's Small UAS Safety Ground School for free. The full sUAS Safety Ground School can be purchased as an SM4 partner for $250.

The Small UAS Safety Ground School is a self-paced online course (24 hours) that sets a sturdy foundation of required aeronautical knowledge for remote pilots operating UAS weighing up to 55lbs MGTOW. The curriculum meets and exceeds all aeronautical knowledge factors outlined by the FAA for the Unmanned Aircraft General (UAG) examination to those who intend to obtain a Remote Pilot Certificate (RPC) and includes advanced safety concepts and practices to develop responsible, safety-certified remote pilots. Students who successfully complete the course are eligible for special insurance discounts, and are well prepared to pass the UAG exam and earn their FAA RPC. Successful candidates of this course earn a USI Certificate of Training valid for 24 months. This course is accepted by the FAA and valid for WINGS credit.
