In a disturbing sign of the times, the world’s first university dedicated solely to training drone pilots is up and running. The Washington Times reported on the university founded by retired Air Force pilot Jerry LeMieux.

Col. LeMieux’s school is one of several trying to get off the ground, literally and figuratively, with colleges and universities across the country seeking a piece of what is expected to be a business boom in the drone market in the coming years.

Unmanned Vehicle University received its international accreditation in July, and while it currently offers only online courses, Col. LeMieux envisions a sprawling campus in Lake Havasu, Ariz.
