What We Do

The CSU Drone Center exists to assist UAS-enabled research at Colorado State University. We offer consultation on drone systems, UAS project guidance, UAS piloting, assistance with UAS pilot training, liaison and navigation of FAA regulations, and as point of contact for UAS inquiries from outside the University. Further, the Center assists in authorizing flight requests at CSU and managing the Christman Airfield use for drone flights.

Flight Training and Demo days at Christman Airfield

Pre-registration is required and only licensed pilots and insured aircraft are allowed to fly. Pre-briefing meeting will be held at the Drone Center at 9:00am if you want to attend, Engineering Research Center A316.  Safety Briefing will begin at 10:00am at the Christman Airfield. This is also a good day for anyone who wishes to get demo or hands on experience for the first time.
