An oldie but worth revisiting

I wish more people looked at using #drones  properly and attended courses. I know this is a commercial course for those operating larger drones but it still makes sense to be trained and realise your responsibilities of sharing #airspace  with others even when flying smaller drones.
If you are intending to use a #drone  (also known as #RPAS  or UAV) for commercial purposes it is a regulatory requirement to obtain #CAA   permissions. You must meet the UK CAA’s CAP722 Chapter 4: Civil UAS Remote Pilot Competency (this does not apply to drones under 20kg).

Any reputable course, such as the one we run, should be an enabler to gain CAA permissions. Our course has NQE status (NATS is a National Qualified Entity). We will recommend people for CAA permissions approval at the end of the course and help you complete the all important operations manual/Operational Safety Case (OSC), which you must send to the CAA as part of their competency confirmation process.

To secure your place or find out more please visit our website:

Interesting - anyone looked into this?

The importance of #aviation  is shown well in this blog
The #aviation  connection to the #Shetland  Islands is vital, as there are only two ways of getting there; by ‘plane or by boat.

The boat option requires a 12 or 14 hour overnight journey to/from #Aberdeen  so the flight option is much quicker for those wanting to make the trip to mainland UK.

Great news.
We have secured contracts with #helicopter  operators in #Aberdeen  and #Scatsta #Airports  in order to provide air traffic control (ATC) services in the East Shetland Basin, an area of oil and gas exploration north east of the #Shetland  Islands.

Lots of potential for this.
Air traffic controllers at #NATS  managed the first flight by an unmanned #aircraft  in controlled and unsegregated #airspace  in what is being hailed as a UK first and major milestone in the development of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) for civil and commercial use.

New responsive website and the R&D page is so cool
This week Europe’s aviation community gather for the European Commission-sponsored #Aerodays  conference.

It’s a major event that only takes place once every few years to develop innovative concepts and technologies that will help ensure the #aviation  can grow, safely and sustainably, and to discuss emerging issues.
