SAIT launches remotely-piloted aviation training centre


The Southern Alberta Institute of Technology’s Applied Research and Innovation Services has launched the remotely-piloted aviation training centre. The centre focuses on training, certification, research, and development for Remotely-Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) that are designed for heavy lifting and work beyond the operator’s line of sight. The centre will train pilots and technicians for work with specific aircraft, facilitate technological enhancement, and support skills development and employment. SAIT has received $1.48M for the project from the Government of Canada’s Aerospace Regional Recovery Initiative.
