More women are reaching for the stars in 2018 than ever before as the UK’s leading drone training experts reveal a dramatic increase in women enrolling on its courses. RUSTA, which offers Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) approved National Qualified Entity (NQE) training courses covering a wide range of commercial industries and backgrounds, noticed an upsurge in women across the UK registering on its courses in the last 12 months.
RUSTA recently taught 16 members of staff from three out of four of the UWE’s faculties. The participants came from departments as diverse as Engineering Design & Mathematics, Film & Journalism and Geographic & Environmental Management, where they learnt pre-flight processes and procedures, flight manoeuvres and emergency procedures.
RUSTA awarded Amy Cheeseman and Sophie Harwood, of Waldeck Consulting, with ProQual NVQ Level 4 diplomas on Friday. The pair were the ambassadors for Waldeck completing their original UAV course in April 2017.
Rusta’s ‘Alumni’ membership will be available from midday today and will offer exclusive benefits and discounts across a whole range of drone training services. The benefits of the Alumni include ongoing support with Operations manuals, networking events, discounts on products & services.
Little over a week ago in Caracas, Venezuela an attempted assassination took place against the country’s premier, President Maduro. Nothing new you might say, there have been many assassination attempts in South America in recent times. However, what sets this apart from other attacks was it came remotely, from the air by a small fleet of drones.
One of our favourite locations for RUSTA is Chester. The city of Chester is steeped in history and the comfortable venue is conveniently located outside of the city. The location is also ideally located for access as it’s near to the M53, A55 and M56. It attracts candidates not only from Chester and the surrounding area, but North Wales and Merseyside.
