RUSTA has completed the restructure of its existing RPCS classroom course for the PfCO.
The Lincolnshire-based firm has changed the program with the aim to make it more practical for those wanting to complete the theory course, operations manual and flight test all at once.
RUSTA says it understands that people lead busy working lives and the demand for a concise 3-day course is now available.
With the operations manual workshop and flight test offered on the third day, it is now possible to complete the process in 3 days.
RUSTA did confirm that day 3 is optional for candidates with the requisite number of hours and an operations manual that is close to reaching the required ratification standard.
Alternatively, RUSTA says that, if it suits a candidate’s preference, they can complete just the 2-day theory course and then go away and complete their operations manual in their own time and arrange their flight test for a later date once their operations manual is approved.
Commercially, RUSTA has trained large Agronomy companies such as Agrovista, Bayer crop Science and Frontier Agriculture and has trained many Police Forces nationally including the Metropolitan Police Service, Surrey and Sussex Police and Lincolnshire Police.
This training service has also now extended globally to Hong Kong and Switzerland and, in the military sphere, RUSTA has already trained elements of the Royal Air Force Regiment, Military Air Accident Investigation Board (MAAIB) and the Military Aviation Authority (MAA) in the sub 20Kg Type 1B UAV.
As part of the news, RUSTA launched two new training locations for 2019 in Caerphilly and Uxbridge where the improved RPCS course is available for bookings.
