Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) Training Course

Online lecturer-led training available soon.

UAV Industries is proud to present our Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) endorsement Training course, which is certified by the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA). We currently have two authorised flight schools, in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

The advent of BVLOS training in South Africa represents a big step up for both UAV Industries and the SACAA in terms of international BVLOS operations and standards. This endorsement allows a correctly certified RPL pilot to now undertake BVLOS operations, ensuring a consistent standard that complies with accepted international aviation standards.
