Resource UAS launches training courses

26th July 2012 - 15:46 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Resource UAS, the recently launched division of Resource Group, has announced a number of new training courses to begin in September 2012. The company announced the courses, to be run at Resource Training’s site in Cwmbran, South Wales and Cotswold Airport, Cirencester, Gloucestershire, 26 July 2012.

The division offers foundation training to remote pilots and sensor operators across a range of UAV platforms including NANO, Class 1 and Class 2.  Training is delivered via a combination of web-based training, ground school, high fidelity simulation and live flying and is designed to anticipate the licensing requirements that will be forthcoming from both the military and civil authorities.

The UAS (NANO) foundation course aims to teach entry level students the necessary skills and competencies to conduct live flying practices on a representative UAS (NANO) platform.  The course comprises one week of theory, practical and live flying, considering all essential elements in operating UAS (NANO) platforms and is reinforced by theory and practical examinations.

The sensor operator course will begin with web-based training, including navigation, air law and meteorology.  Five days of classroom based ground school focuses on sensor operator techniques and procedures which builds a sound theoretical base of knowledge. This is followed by five days of practical consolidation training with a series of representative synthetic scenarios using a high fidelity simulator.

Company spokesman, Craig Lippett, UAS training manager, commented, ‘It is vital to provide training in the fundamental techniques of system operation.  In that way, the capabilities of UAV systems can be fully exploited by consistently trained, professional operators whose main focus is the successful and safe completion of their mission.’
