CAA International (CAAi), the training arm of the U.K. Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), launched a one-day training course on unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) regulation. The Introduction to Unmanned Aircraft Systems Regulation course was designed and developed by active U.K. CAA regulators and will begin on March 25, 2019 at CAA’s training facilities in London Gatwick, England.

The course will give delegates an understanding of the regulatory framework associated with the operation of UAS and explore existing UAS regulations and how they apply to leisure and commercial UAS operations. According to CAAi, delegates will benefit from guidance on the requirements, operational and technical aspects and the risk-based processes that underpin the application and granting of authorizations for UAS operations.

Senior Training Manager for CAAi, Silke Buckley says, “To date, the CAA has been proactive targeting drone users to raise awareness of the rules and regulations in the UK. This training course will now allow the CAA to engage with fellow regulatory professionals overseas and industry. By exploring the current and future UAS regulatory system in accordance with International Civil Aviation Organization, European Aviation Safety Agency and U.K. CAA standards, delegates will gain a solid understanding of how regulation impacts UAS operations.”
