The ALTA familiarization training is a concentrated, hands-on two-day course focusing on the new business norm for elite aerial cinematographers. We will take an in-depth look at all the unique features of the ALTA and how they correlate to real world environments. With thousands of flights piloted on the ALTA/Synapse flight controller, we will pass along tips to help you get the shot in a safe, efficient manner and share aircraft dynamic settings for flying the RED that have worked well for us.
Whether you are planning on purchasing an ALTA today or in the future, attending the two day workshop will enlighten you on the engineering, component testing, portability, efficiency and ease of tuning that was unavailable until now. Henceforth, acquiring the knowledge to safely operate the ALTA/Synapse flight controller is the key in remaining current with aerial cinematography technology. (Think about the typewriter vs. iPhone 6S.) In addition, you will receive a certificate of completion for attending 16 hours of training on the ALTA. Many Aviation Authorities, Insurance Companies & Ad Agencies require some proof of training prior to granting permission for aerial work, policies/discounts or engagement contracts.
