Middleport’s FMC Takes Schoolhouse Skies with Drone Flight Instruction

MIDDLEPORT — FMC offered one of their employees to Roy-Hart High School on Monday, helping students learn more about drone technology through interactive engagement.

As part of FMC’s effort to acquaint interested Roy-Hart teachers and students with this evolving technology, Micha Santos, lead remote pilot for GHD Aerial and Ground Intelligence Team, worked with attending students to explain the mechanics and operations of drone technology.

Drones are being used increasingly for commercial and consumer purposes, especially aerial photography. Current technology teacher at Roy-Hart, Michelle Parker, will be teaching a class section on drones in the upcoming school year.
