UAVAIR delivers unmanned training to Australian Army
Across 11 locations in Australia the company has been providing this training, leveraging its experience in carrying out similar educational courses for commercial UAV operators.
‘UAVAIR [has] significant expertise in commercial drone training and the continuation of the contract with the Australian Army UAS/drone programme is recognition for the skills and capability that UAVAIR provide in delivering industry-leading drone training across Australia,’ David Mann, general manager of the company, said.
The contract for the army began in 2018 after UAVAIR was selected through an open tender, and has continued throughout 2019, providing jobs for the Australian UAV industry as the company continues to expand its instructor pool in order to be able to deliver the services.
UAVAIR delivers the courses from its headquarters in Newcastle in New South Wales and at various other offices across Australia, offering a range of course types for different industries including for schools, individuals and businesses.
