Be a drone pilot!

Cayuse Native Solutions is recruiting enrolled members of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation who are interested in a career in the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) industry.

CNS recently launched drone services for tribes, tribal entities, Native-owned businesses and other organizations serving Indigenous communities. As part of that effort, the company is training and hiring tribal members to provide drone services while they learn from an experienced UAV team and provide services along with CNS' drone partners Delmar Aerospace and Volatus Group.

According to CNS President Debra Croswell, "We are creating career opportunities for our tribal members who are interested in the drone industry, particularly as a drone operator. A certified cadre of drone experts is essential as we grow this new service line to help tribes with all kinds of mapping, data collection, photo and video images, search and rescue, and much more."

Croswell is hoping to train and hire several CTUIR citizens this year and next as the service grows. So far, their first student is progressing and is nearing completion of the intense 4-week drone course which includes ground school and flights.

Interested CTUIR members are invited to contact Cayuse Native Solutions by email at The company plans to interview and select a suitable candidate for the next round of training this spring.
