We are pleased to announce the launch of the UK Civil Aviation Authority’s brand new training course covering Unmanned Aircraft Systems regulation.
Titled “Introduction to Unmanned Aircraft Systems Regulation”, the course will provide delegates with an understanding of the regulatory framework associated with the operation of unmanned aircraft systems. The course explores existing UAS regulations and how they apply to leisure and commercial UAS operations. Delegates will benefit from guidance on the requirements, operational and technical aspects and the risk-based processes underpinning the application and granting of authorisations for UAS operations.
With drone use growing at a rapid rate in the UK, the CAA has played an active role in educating UK drone users. In cooperation with NATS and supported by industry, in 2016 the CAA rolled out a major campaign to promote the responsible use of drones using the CAA’s “Dronecode”. Within a few months, public awareness of Dronecode leapt by 50 per cent.
Silke Buckley, Senior Training Manager for CAAi said, “To date, the CAA has been proactive targeting drone users to raise awareness of the rules and regulations in the UK. This training course will now allow the CAA to engage with fellow regulatory professionals overseas and industry. By exploring the current and future UAS regulatory system in accordance with ICAO, EASA and UK CAA standards, delegates will gain a solid understanding of how regulation impacts UAS operations”.
Designed and developed by active UK CAA regulators, the first course will take place at the CAA’s London Gatwick training facilities on 25 March 2019.
