UAV Instructor

James Aarestad

I've been flying things ever since I was a kid. I started out flying remotely ontrolled ircraft when I was 12 years old. In high school, I started flying manned aircraft, and I obtained my Commercial pilots license and Flight Instructor rating when I was 18 years old, still in High School. Ever since, then I've been flying professionally. Additionally, I serve as a special deputy for a local Sheriff's department, here in Minnesota. I helped implement and develop the state's first UAV program for a Law Enforcement. Thanks for joining me on this course. I think you'll enjoy it!
