The thought of flying itself gives an ecstatic feeling for human beings. When flying just remained as the fantasy and the exaggerated metaphor in the verses, with the advent of immense knowledge on modern technology led to the dream come true moment for us. It has even become a hobby for the humankind to explore more on the different flights using various studies. Drones have become the most wanting technology to the people either for just to play with or for professional use. The drones are also named as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV). They have become a hobby toy for the kids. It is incredibly used for various purposes ranging from capturing the stunning aerial view of the scenery, to rescuing the lost hikers in the distant lands. Introducing drones to the kids involves better scope for the advent of their knowledge on any one of the streams in STEM education.
This article explains the benefits of drone technology, best drones for kids and drone training program for kids in Delhi.

Learning STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) would be difficult for most of the kids through just the hour-long lectures from a teacher. Kids are easy to influence. They need fun elements in everything to feel more manifested in anything they do. This makes possible with the learning of drone technology. The drone technology highly promotes STEM education. The process of learning drone technology leads to having basic insights on the STEM subjects.
Physical Coordination: As the kids try to learn how to operate a drone, their brain comes in coordination with their body. They gain more of the hand-eye coordination in the process of learning to operate a drone.
Introduction to the World of Coding: The practice of operating drones gives the scope to jump into the coding world to design a specific pattern of flight and this lets the kids to build different kinds of drones and makes them more acquainted with the technology better for future exploration.
Cognitive Development: As the kids become more acquainted with the regular flying patterns of the drones, they tend to develop reasoning skills on the drones which are operated in a different environment or with different flying patterns. They automatically develop reasoning skills through operating and developing a drone.
Often parents are concerned about the safety issues around their kids operating the drones. The drones for kids are lesser in weight and the complications involved in it. If your kid has just started to try flying, then it is wise to pick the simplest model of drones for them. In due course of time, as the child gradually learns the basics of a drone, parents can consider buying the upgraded version of it. Although drones made for kids are less likely to harm, children should operate the drone under parental supervision at the beginning. The right age of the kids to start learning to operate drones can be from eight. There are many drones available in the market designed for the kids to operate. Among them a few good picks are:

2. Drones explorer class for kids (Age 10+)
This drone class lets your kid go a step further in drone technology. If your kid has just started to show interest in drones and its technology, this course further helps in developing knowledge on new programs such as block and C++. Using these programs, your kid will learn about Accelerometer, Spirit Level, Color Wheel, Assembly & Flying, Flying with various modes, Chuck to fly and Reactive drone.
3. Drones champion class for kids (Age 14+)
This drone class leads your kid to master the skills of drone technology. Your kid will learn to use C++ or block programming to develop projects through the STEM drone kit. The kid will learn more about Open Sesame, Reactive Drone, Phone Clone, Debugging APIs, Barometer, Accelerometer, so on and so forth. This leads the kid to develop logical thinking and reasoning.
Kids are the future of the technological era. Introducing them to STEM concepts through Drone technology would be the perfect choice for the kids to get along and master the skills in any one of the streams in STEM. We, at Skyfi Labs, realize its scope for the future and have constructed some effective drone classes exclusively for kids to get introduced to drone technology. The kids get the complete focus from our trainers as they are the one to one modelled courses. Pick the right course for your kids to help them ready for their competition-driven era. Any queries and concerns on the above-mentioned courses or general queries on drone technology are invited as a comment below.
Delhi the national capital of India because of this reason it is one of the highly secured places in India. Flying a drone in Delhi is not an easy task as it requires many permissions to take from authorities. DGCA had also laid some rules and regulations for flying a drone in that a drone that weighs less than 250 grams doesn’t require any permission to fly but the drone should be operated below 200ft.
As most of the kid’s drones are less than 250 grams no need to worry about flying the drone. But it is always safe to operate the drone in closed environments such as football ground, indoor stadiums, inside homes, school grounds, etc.
Note: No drones should be operated near red zones like military camps, Rajpath, Airports, public areas, etc.
Other aviation-related activities for kids in Delhi
Plane spotting is the best choice for kids who had a craze for aircraft. Vasant Vihar near Delhi airport is the best place for plane spotting where kids get the chance to see the different kinds of aeroplanes from various parts of the world.
