The UK's Civil Aviation Authority International has launched a new one-day training course covering UAS regulations.

The course, titled ‘Introduction to Unmanned Aircraft Systems Regulation’, will provide trainees with an understanding of the regulatory framework associated with the operation of UAS.

The course will explore existing UAS regulations and how they apply to leisure and commercial UAS operations. Attendees will benefit from guidance on the requirements, operational and technical aspects and the risk-based processes supporting the application and granting of authorisations for UAS operations.

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 UK CAA regulators, the first course will take place at the CAA’s London Gatwick training facilities in March 2019.
