Airborne drones (unmanned aerial vehicles (or remotely piloted aircraft (RPA)) of varying shapes and sizes are permeating the civil aviation sector across recreational, commercial and research activities. The professional ability to safely and efficiently operate and manage airborne drones requires fundamental aviation knowledge. This course will introduce these fundamentals of RPA management to students through a suite of topics including basic aeronautical knowledge, RPA ethics and law, human factors and safety, logistics and operations, and RPA research methods. The course will emphasise practical applications of the concepts and tools introduced through select case studies and realistic mission planning for operations involving commercial and research activities.
