“We have been using drones for a wide range of environmental and agricultural research applications, both within the country and internationally,” Pin Koh said.
The course covers all practical and theoretical aspects of the flying and the requirements of the CASA which are required in order to obtain the commercial drone license. The syllabus also includes air legislation, aerodynamics, meteorology and flight training for multi-rotor and fixed wing drones.
