Rotor Rush Academy

Rotor Rush Academy aims to teach the next generation or drone pilots. Using a combination of a balanced curriculum, Virtual simulated flight lessons, real flight lessons using micro drones, we are taking Rotor Rush Academy into schools across the world to teach young students how fly, build and yes race drones. And all at zero cost to the schools or students.


Growing the Community

Rotor Rush Academy
Rotor Rush Academy are working with schools and education partners as well as drone industry experts to continually develop a curriculum which is engaging, inspiring and fun for students and with a number of key goals.
  • Provide a structured, supportive & safe way for young people to learn to fly drones and become involved in drone sports
  • Assist educational institutes to attract and inspire young students into the core STEM subjects
  • Promote, encourage and support international learning
  • Provide students, teachers and educational institutes with the technology &resources needed to achieve these goals, free of charge.

Proud to support

Sheflies offer a comprehensive, multidisciplinary program that builds confidence in girls and women to engage in the wonderful world of flying drones! Whether you’re into drone racing, engineering and electronics, science, or even taking amazing photos, drones are infiltrating our lives and will undoubtedly play a role in our future. Have a go – you may even like it!
Girls represent less than 0.5% of the drone sports community and Rotor Rush aims to address this by partnering with organisations like She Flies to give girls an equal opportunity to engage in and enjoy the sport. Rotor Rush then links these activities with Rotor Rush community allowing girls the opportunity to engage in the wider sport with support from community organisations.
