More U.S. Colleges offering Bachelor’s Degrees in Drone Piloting

(You mean I can get a degree in MURDER???? WTF!!!)

An increasing number of U.S. colleges have been offering bachelor degrees in drone piloting and engineering to students, while dozens more teach courses on UAVs. Starting salaries in the field are much higher than comparative jobs, like helicopter and commercial jet piloting. RT’s Anastasia Churkina reports on the trend, while controversy over drone use inside the U.S. grows.

    Do not approach the suspects as they are considered armed with Joystick controls and hacking programs that could guide other drones as a means of escaping arrest. Leave to us we are developing Anti-hijacking Drone Program..
    And so it goes – more technical advances only aid these terrorists.
