UAV Industries, a leading commercial drone pilot training and operations company, has announced the launch of its accredited Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) Training Course, open to all drone pilots in possession of a valid Remote Pilot Licence (RPL).
First to market in Africa, the B-VLOS training course is endorsed by both the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SA CAA) and the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
The advent of BVLOS training in South Africa represents a big step up for both UAV Industries and the SA CAA in terms of international BVLOS operations and standards. There are currently no other African countries within the ICAO states offering a BVLOS endorsement that complies with both ICAO and local regulations. This endorsement allows a correctly certified RPL pilot to now undertake BVLOS operations, ensuring a consistent standard that complies with accepted international aviation standards.
