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.
