King Schools launches UAS training course

6th February 2017 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) has entered into a partnership with the King Schools to provide commercial UAS operators with the training they need to obtain a Remote Pilot Certificate to meet Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requirements, AUVSI announced on 2 February.

Under the new Small UAS rule (also known as Part 107) commercial UAS operators must pass an aeronautical knowledge test and obtain a remote pilot certificate with a small UAS rating. The certificate must be renewed every two years. The online UAS pilot ground school and test preparation course is designed to provide operators with information about the test, as well as flying safely and responsibly in the National Airspace System.

Brian Wynne, president and CEO of AUVSI, said: ‘King Schools’ decades of experience in providing top-rated, computer-based aviation training made them the right partner for us. With their expertise, there is now a credible training course to assist UAS operators in studying for the FAA’s aeronautical knowledge test in order to obtain the Remote Pilot Certificate.’

Martha King, co-founder of King Schools, said: ‘AUVSI is the perfect partner to best serve our customers. Their expertise was extremely beneficial in putting the course together. Their knowledge and experience will continue to be an invaluable contribution to us and the entire drone community.’
