Feature: “It’s fun to fly a drone, but at Brother Martin, students learn to be professional pilots” recently wrote an article featuring our Aerospace Science Program:

"In a typical classroom setting, "drone" might be used to refer to a particularly boring lecture. But at Brother Martin High School in New Orleans, the word is part of an exciting new curriculum.

The school’s new aerospace science course is taught by the senior science instructor of its Naval Junior ROTC Program, Retired Cmdr. Bruce D. Nolan. It focuses on the fundamentals of professional Unmanned Aircraft System operators — drone pilots.

A 1990 graduate of Brother Martin, Nolan is a 20-year Navy veteran with a wealth of experience in this field, having served as both a helicopter pilot and a flight instructor.

The goal of the program is for students to earn commercial certification to operate professionally."
