About the course

The NATS Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) course (UK Module), is designed to instruct operators to a level which will satisfy the safety and operational requirements outlined by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). The course is available to individuals, small companies and large organisations. Successful course completion facilitates NATS recommendation to the regulator in order to obtain CAA Permissions/Exemptions for aerial work. Course instruction is provided by Air Traffic Control (ATC) professionals with comprehensive operational RPAS experience, and is designed to facilitate a ‘tailored’ training approach. This enables NATS to satisfy the knowledge requirements of novices and experts alike.
