Airbus to launch drone pilot training course in India

Airbus will start offering a drone pilot training course in India at Airbus Training Centre in Bengaluru from June 26, 2023, addressing the skilling requirements of a growing industry.

The course is approved by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

Designed for micro and small category drones, the five-day programme would cover both theory and flying lessons in order to boost the knowledge of aspiring drone pilots and deepen capabilities in the fast-developing drone sector in India.

DGCA-approved Airbus instructors will provide theoretical training covering topics such as drone rules, basic principles of flight, ATC procedures, maintenance, operations and aerodynamics. The students will also receive drone flying lessons, which will include simulator training, and practical flying lessons at an Airbus approved facility in Bengaluru, where drones will be provided by Airbus. Students will be awarded a certificate from Airbus on successful completion of the course.

Candidates who have successfully completed Class 10 and are between 18 and 65 years of age are eligible to  apply for the programme. They must also hold a valid Indian passport and would be required to produce a medical certificate of fitness to undergo the training and operate the drones.
