It Nears: Colleges Offering Courses In Unmanned Drones

February 20, 2013


Really? Because I could have sworn all my professors were teaching droning. Get it?! Because they just rambled on monotonously all the time! "Well obviously they weren't teaching comedy." GOOD ONE. How's that dickbaggery major working out for you?

The pilotless aircraft industry is expected to create more than 23,000 U.S. jobs over the next 15 years, according to the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International. A spokesperson for the group told The Daily that 150 colleges are now offering courses.

Jeb Bailey, 28, told The Daily he has taken every drone-related course at Northwestern Michigan College. It's no wonder why, when drone pilots can make $50,000 to $120,000 per year, according to Tom Kenville, founder of Unmanned Applications Institute International. Bailey said the idea of flying unmanned drones for a year in Afghanistan to pay off student loan debt sounded pretty attractive.

Flying unmanned drones for a year in Afghanistan to pay off your student loans sounded pretty attractive to you, did it, Jeb? Let me tell you what sounds attractive to me: a naked lady with big ol' milky-white titties lounging on my couch like she just stepped out of some fancy old oil painting. Yeah, and she's got a Butterfinger ice cream bar in her hand and she's mouthing something to me. You know what she's saying, Jeb? She's saying, "I'm full, you can have the rest." Now that's f***ing attractive. I still haven't paid off my student loans.

Thanks to Rusty Trombo-- REALLY? Come on, this is a family restaurant!

    It is a superb post as it is showing the need of american market in air crafting and unmanned vehicles and air crafts which would overcome a lot of share of the world's market and people would have to create superiorpapers to succeed in that scenario.

    This is scary, GW and I have the exact same idea as to what is pretty attractive.

    These drones are just used for killing people. A lot of them are used for intel and spying behind enemy lines. They keep a lot of American troops safe because they let soldiers on the ground know what is ahead and they keep soldiers out of the sky.

  • I think I'll wait till the course with micro spying drone come out where they put robotic rc components in bugs. Or until there is a course on RC Taxidermy:

  • jimmy

    Basically a course in advanced remote control planes

  • Dylan Port

    How is killing people attractive you Americans are crazy

  • $18922249

    Disgusting and shameful.

  • Copedizzle

    I'd have to agree with Jeb. I was deployed to Afghanistan in 2011 and I envied the hell out of the civilians who stayed at the main base and flew a remote controlled plane for triple the amount of pay that I was making at the time and next to no risk. The best part is that the money is tax free.

    Yeah maybe if more people take these class there will be less school shootings cause psychos get to kill hundreds of innocent kids via drone instead.

  • SharpShark

    Aren't they supposed to be unmanned? Taking a course in this plane won't make it unmanned anymore. :<

  • westmclarenmerc

    Technically they are not really unmanned, the pilots are just sitting in a chair looking at a monitor piloting the machine and deciding who to kill. A real unmanned drone should be capable of operating without any human interations, but thats how the human race will end. IF you believe GW that is.

  • jimmy

    There is no 'man' in the vehicle; it is unmanned.
    What you probably mean is it is not a 'robot', as it is not operating on it's own.

  • westmclarenmerc

    I know there is no person inside of it. But there is an operator, so in a sense it is manned, but just not inside the vehicle. Google (and other companies) are experimenting with cars that can drive without any human interactions. THAT is the true meaning of unmanned for me. However it scares the shit out of me because those kind of cars will be very popular in the lets-put-bombs-in-vechicles-and-kill-innocent-people-with-it community. But my point is the same, just because there is no person in it, as long as it's operated by humans, it's technically not 100% unmanned. It's just risk-free for the people who operate them.

  • Drones. Everywhere.

  • Shane Anderson

    You mean... in how to play a video game? This is a serious problem - teaching kids to kill without being there to see people die. Who is the drone now?
