Flying a Drone can be Your Minor

Aviation students, clamoring to enroll in Long Island’s first unmanned-aircraft training course.

This semester, Dowling College has started its first course toward a 12-credit minor in the subject — and the class was the first to fill up at the college’s School of Aviation in Brookhaven.

Now its 27 students are hoping to master the art of flying drones and land lucrative jobs in the booming industry.
