Below are our primary training focuses, please call us to see if we can meet your training needs.


Photogrammetric Image Processing

The AggieAir Service Center uses ‘Agisoft PhotoScan Professional’, a stand alone software product that performs photogrammetric processing of digital images and allows the user to generate 3d spatial data. Training will develop the user's knowledge in all fundamental aspects of Agisoft Photoscan Professional including:

  • Importing & Aligning Raw Imagery
  • Adding GCP Point Data
  • Creating Point Clouds & Digital Surface Models
  • Creating Orthorectified Mosaics
  • Exporting Mosaics & Investigating Reflectance Values

Mission Planning, Flight Simulation, & Testing

Mission planning and development are a prerequisite for all UAV flight missions. Training studies the critical phases of mission planning and development using in-house developed software to plan UAV missions.  Focus is also given to achieving the overall objectives of the mission. Additional training will encompass the following:

  • Achieving Mission Objectives Through Correct Flight Planning
  • Mission Simulation & Testing
  • Common Issues of Aerial Targets & Ground Control Point Locations
  • UAV Mission Budget Analysis
  • Flight Testing & Remote Sensing Analysis
  • Mission Flights 
  • Post Processing & Analytics

UAV Flight Training  & Testing

AggieAir has its own designated test flight location where all UAV flights are covered under a Certificate of Authorization. This allows Aggieair to test fly all UAV up to 1000m AGL. Training involves a combination of basic hands-on training and classroom workshops.

  • Fundamentals of all UAV flights - classroom & hands-on experience
  • White Panel/ Payload Calibration Fundamentals
  • Pre-flight Checks & Documentation
