      PRESS RELEASE/// Please Forward/// First Call For Kite Pilot Trainees
       
      Airborne Wind Energy (AWE) is a hot new field in alternative energy. FAA rules for small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) define AWE's USA regulatory framework. Early compliance helps predict commercialization prospects for competing AWE technologies. A new aviation profession of AWE Kite Pilot has emerged.
       
      KiteLab Group is now registering students for its experimental Cat 1 sUAS AWE Training Course (Kite Pilot School). This is combined Cat 1 PIC (Pilot In Control) & (VO) Visual Observer Training. Completion qualifies for follow-on training for a KiteLab Group Cat 1 Instructor Rating. CAT 2 sUAS AWE category certification training will be offered as FAA requirements are finalized & met.
       
      This training is rigorous college-level study with hands-on practice. Mastery of pertinent aeronautical & AWE application knowledge is required. Structured flying hours with varied systems & conditions are assigned. Most coursework can be completed as distance learning. Flexible access to specialized sUAS AWE equipment with instruction is available in Ilwaco, WA, a scenic world-class kiting location.
       
      Prior experience in these areas earns partial credit- Piloting (including ultralight, hang glider, skydiving, & paraglider), Kite Mastery, Model Aviation Expertise, UAV Operations, & Membership (in good standing) in an FAA accepted enitity like the American Kiteflier's Association (AKA) or Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA). Membership in the Airborne Wind Energy Industry Association (AWEIA) required. Students must be 14 or older.
       
      Course is self-paced with supervision. Cat 1 Base Tuition is $500US. Field Instruction & Flight Testing is $20hr (average 10hrs). Economy food & lodging available. Volunteer work, group registration, or hardship qualifies for free or discounted training.
