FlightSafety develops UAS training programme
FlightSafety International, in conjunction with Praxis Aerospace Concepts, has developed a practical UAS flight training programme that will help commercial UAS operators improve safety levels and proficiency, the company announced on 7 February.
The training will initially be offered in the Las Vegas area and at several FlightSafety learning centres in the US. The AUVSI TOP-compliant courses will focus on standardisation and professionalism. The courses have been developed to ASTM International UAS standards as well as several other national aviation authority standards throughout the world.
FlightSafety’s Unmanned Systems Training division also offers several eLearning courses and Advanced Remote Pilot Series practical training courses. This series of courses features a set of comprehensive training elements designed to drive UAS pilots into the commercial sector with the skills and tools to operate as a commercial remote pilot.
