Purdue University's principle textbook, with new workbook added, for professional unmanned systems training and license preparation.

Unmanned Aerial Systems: The Definitive Guide was written to provide a comprehensive textbook for training in the emerging technology of unmanned aerial vehicles. These vehicles share many commonalities with manned aircraft, but have unique characteristics that require knowledge and skill to approach safely. From weather, to regulations, to autonomous flight and payload integration, as well as aircraft structures, this text will guide the professional remote pilot in the operation and repair of unmanned aircraft. The chapters of this book include relevant segments from the theory and science of aviation so that a thorough understanding of the aircraft and its operating environment are achieved.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has established the subject areas that is deems relevant to testing and licensing of the remote pilot. This book not only provides the necessary knowledge to pass the FAA part 107 exam in those subject areas, but in most cases answers the “why” behind the question and appropriate answer. This textbook is written for persons from 16 years of age and up so they have the necessary reference information to operate unmanned aircraft safely and with the knowledge needed.

Michael Leasure provides a comprehensive practical knowledge base on all aspects of UAS. Professor Leasure’s approach to the field and comprehensive coverage of difficult to understand concepts is key in guiding you to a successful career in this emerging aviation segment. Unlike other books that treat UAS as radio control toys, this book provides you with the knowledge that you will need to tackle this field professionally.
