Addendum to Course Description
This course is an introductory examination of various jobs and applications related to uses of UAS.
"Unoccupied" Aircraft Systems
Portland Community College has chosen to use the term "Unoccupied" when referring to Aircraft Systems that are flown by a pilot via a ground control system, or autonomously through the use of an on-board computer, communication links and any additional equipment that is necessary for the system to operate safely. Industry standards and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations use the term "Unmanned" to refer to such systems, however the College recognizes that this term is not gender inclusive and therefore has adopted the use of "Unoccupied" to better reflect its values around Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
