The University of Wolverhampton Business Solutions Centre is delighted to announce that through a partnering arrangement with the CAA approved Rheinmetall Unmanned Systems Training Academy (RUSTA) it is offering a course leading to Permission for Commercial Operations (PFCO) thus providing commercial drone pilots with the skills and qualification to operate safely and legally in UK airspace.

What is RUSTA’s Remote Pilot Certificate SUAS (RPCS)?
RUSTA’s Remote Pilot Certificate SUAS (RPCS) course is CAA approved and offers training and assessment to SUAS, UAV or drone operators that wish to obtain a PFCO from the CAA.
The RPCS course is designed to teach you the skills required to confidently fly within the safety standards and legal requirements set out by the CAA.

This course has been built from the ground up to give you all the tools you need for a successful future in the use of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) technology, and will be delivered by one of RUSTA’s trained academy staff, who have prior backgrounds and experience in this field whether military or commercial. The qualification that you receive at the completion of the course is a legal requirement in order to operate and offer these services commercially, so where better to obtain it then one of the leading CAA accreditors in the UK.
