What do you know about Drones? 
Would you like to learn to fly one or just be educated about them? 
Within our very own community we have been and continue to do that since 2017!

We are Central Colorado UAS.

The Central Colorado UAS (CCUAS) is a 501 (C) (3), which has no paid staff, but relies on volunteers, memberships, and donations to fulfill its goals. The Club has been instrumental in encouraging and training Salida and Buena Vista High School Students, Search & Rescue, Public Safety, Research & Development, Community Outreach, Utilities.  The Central Colorado UAS is partnering with the Town of Buena Vista to develop and complete a fully equipped Drone Training Park as well as a fully equipped SMART Classroom!  The Drone Training Park is a unique facility, which will attract academia, public safety, research & development, government, utilities, and private industry.  The Drone SMART Classroom will be a fully equipped portable classroom where leaders and teachers in the industry can conduct ground school classwork and education.

Drones are registered just like manned aircraft with the FAA and are recognized as part of the aviation system and those interested in using Drone equipment professionally must have a Part 107 Certification issued to them by the FAA upon completion and verification of successfully passing proof of the industry approved examination.

CCUAS is actively pursuing grants to develop student and work force training programs at the Buena Vista Drone Training Park and also once available will conduct training and classes within the portable classroom.

CCUAS is now at a critical juncture for completing a matching foundation grant of $25,000.  Your financial support as well as volunteer assistance will be sincerely welcome now and in the future.  We cordially invite you to participate and help us to complete our needed goal of raising $25,000 that will be matched by the Ray Foundation!

We thank everyone for any financial contributions as they are VERY important to us and your contribution will be matched!!
