Aviation Australia – Drone Pilots (Session 3)

Club Main Room

If you thought that flying a drone was simply a hobby, think again.

The demand for remote pilots with professional qualifications is growing. More and more businesses are identifying ways that drones can improve their operations and increase commercial opportunities.

Drone? RPA? UAV? Whatever you call it, the unmanned aviation industry is expected to grow significantly in the next decade. There has been an increase in remotely piloted aircraft career prospects and an ongoing evolution of drone technology.

In fact, remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) have already started being used instead of manned aircraft in many tasks, such as aerial surveying of land, buildings and facilities or providing eyes in the sky for emergency services. They’ve even been used in a university research project to collect whale mucus samples! Now that would require a skilled drone pilot!

The increased demand for professional drone operators means there is an increased need for remote pilot training. This is why Aviation Australia is now offering remote pilot training in partnership with Remote Aviation Australia.
