Centrik, AviComply to support RPAS operators

2nd May 2017 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Centrik will work with AviComply to simplify remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) compliance and operational management in South Africa, the company announced on 26 April.

Centrik's UAS management system will be offered by AviComply to help RPAS operators safely and effectively navigate their way through the South African Civil Aviation Authority's (CAA) requirements for the approvals process and operational management.

Sonet Kock, managing director, AviComply, said: 'Obtaining a commercial Remote Operator's Certificate (ROC) in South Africa requires a significant commitment, including formal pilot licensing, safety and quality management qualifications and radio licences and so on. We have helped many operators navigate this minefield and now through Centrik, it will be very easy for ROCs to demonstrate their competence to the CAA and to run an efficient RPAS operation of any size.'

Centrik meets the International Civil Aviation Organization and the European Aviation Safety Agency requirements for the management of both manned and unmanned aircraft.
