Bristol, UK – 30th June 2016

Due to an increasing demand from customers, RUSTA will now offer a course in the popular city of Chester.

The Chester Remote Pilot Certificate SUAS (RPCS) course will allow candidates located in the Liverpool, Manchester and North Wales area to attend the RUSTA UAV ground school course and be on their way to becoming a qualified commercial drone operator in the UK.

To fly a drone commercially in UK airspace an operator needs to have a Permission for Aerial Work (PfAW) from the CAA and RUSTA can get them to that point through the RPCS training course.

“It’s been an exciting year so far for RUSTA,” said Sion Roberts, Head of the Academy. “We are now running at least four courses a month, in addition to our bespoke customer courses, to keep up with the demand. The industry really is experiencing a boom.”

The Chester ground school course is scheduled to take place at the Mercure Chester Abbots Well Hotel.
