According to ABC 7 Chicago, a group of Corliss High School students became licensed drone pilots. They passed the FAA Drone Pilot Exam after weeks of preparation.
After passing the 60-question test, the students were recognized at a school assembly.
A’Janay Lurry, one of the youngest licensed drone pilots in the United States, is among the drone pilot students.
According to Big Thought, women of color make up less than 3% of certified drone pilots.
“It is kind of like playing a video game and I love video games,” Lurry shared, according to the outlet.
Lurry was also honest about the challenges that come with flying drones.
“It is sort of difficult, especially with the sectional chart and the runway,” she explained to the outlet.
