How you operate
After successful completion of the RPCT, candidates must complete and submit their Ops Manual for approval by one of RUSTA’s highly qualified experts. This is completed in the candidate’s own time and requires them to produce a manual detailing the way in which they operate their SUAS to conform to regulations and safety standards.
RUSTA prides itself on the attention to detail and support it offers candidates throughout this process. The theory course is structured so that guidance on the Ops Manual is received from day one of the course, giving candidates the knowledge and confidence necessary to fulfil this task without undue delay.
Once the Ops Manual is deemed and ratified satisfactory by our experts, you will be assigned a RUSTA evaluator. The evaluator will give you a practical scenario that reflects a normal task that you can expect from a customer in the future. You will plan the mission and carry out the practical task at one of the approved RUSTA operational sites. On Successful completion of the practical task the candidate will be awarded their RUSTA wings and will have the ability to apply to the CAA for their PFCO.
